Billet Catch can w/ Polished Whipple

I finally got around to installing my Drev billet catch can. Went high polish w/ chrome fittings to match the polished blower. I may add some wire loom over the hoses later, but here is what it looks like.

I'm not familiar with the internal design of that billet catch can and which port on the can is fitted with the check valve. If the top catch can port is the one fitted with the check valve, your OK, but if it's the port on the side of the can that has the check valve, your hoses need to be reversed.

The JDR Speed catch can design does not use check valves like another type of catch can on the market.

No check valve thats why I don`t have a metco breather on the oil cap. I`m not a big fan of venting to the atmosphere. Just personal preference.

Dude, that engine bay is sex on wheels... Nice work!

But I do have one question- where would you say you most often park this car unattended, with the doors unlocked and the keys in it?

Drev,
Love the can it goes very well in the bay.

Thanks everybody. I still have a few things to do, to tidy it up, I`m going to get a set of unpainted Coil Pack covers from rotofab for the maggie w/ out the cut for the blow off valve and modify them if necessary to work w/ the Whipple. Then have my friend at a body shop paint them RJT and perhaps some silver airbrusing design of some sort on them. Some wire loom over the hoses, black of course. The Jackshaft cover I am going to paint RJT and have the stripe guy do the Whipple name in silver that is raised on the Jackshaft cover.

Snoop, you are correct, it will be at the strip!

Help slow the flow to allow more oil to fall out of suspension and not get sucked back into the intake. Putting an inline glass filter on the outlet line can be quite letting as to how efficient a given can really is. One would be surprised.

OP - very nice looking engine bay.

A check valve is defenitly necessary w/ a catch can if you are venting to the atmosphere, ie.. having an open element breather attached to the crankcase, leaving it no longer a sealed system such as a metco breather on the oil fill location. The theory behind that on boosted cars is to prevent pressurizing the crankase on a boosted application. Personally I don`t like that setup, but there are many people who swear by it. So each to their own, its all good.

This catch can has a divider in between the two ports that runs about a 1/3 of the way down, w/ metal media in the upper 1/3rd.

Here is a link to a pic of the inside:

Snoop,

You know I like to go fast, and look good while doing it! Lol..
