Catch Can for LFX

Is there a catch can for the LFX and if so post up some photos. What benefit will it add?

Catch cans are universal... The RX Catch Can that everyone on the site uses works on the LFX too.

LFX is not the average V6

does the LFX engine suck up as much oil as the LLT engine does?

i'm curious if a catch can is as crutial for the LFX engine as it is for the LLT.

Yes. For any direct injection engine (LLT, LFX, the future v8s that GM is rumored to be working on, etc) it's definitely important to get an oil catch can. Even for regular air injection engines it's still a great idea to have.

I installed mine Wednesday. It took about fifteen minutes. The pro is no oil in the intake. No con that I could see beside maybe the price.......but if you want quality you have to pay for it. Spend $30K+ on a quality car you should spend a few more $$$$ on quality parts. Buy one and have peace of mind.

I was a little skeptical paying that much for one for my LLT but I did it after seeing some of the stuff that people have drained from it. And after just draining mine yesterday after installing it for 600 miles i was amazed how much oil came out, and made me kind of worry about the damage I had already done going 11k miles without one. I would highly suggest buying it.

How did you get that short bracket? I ordered mine awhile back and never got around to installing it. Was looking at doing it yesterday and noticed that the longer/bent bracket I got doesn't seem like it will fit. Or will it? I have the stock air box but getting a Roto-fab air intake installed next week.

Try the bracket you have....should fit well. The short L allows both drivers side or passenger side on the V6. If you need a short one, email us: RXProducts@aol.com

I mounted mine as low as possible on the engine cover post. It's a snug fit, but I didn't have to cut the cover and I think it looks good.
