Catch Cans w/Breather, which brand?

I see Elite and RX seem to be the big players, any feed back LFX users?

Thanks

My RX catch can is on order. If your order the RX catch can (the one for supercharged applications) you can have them plug the whole for the supercharger and later if you get thier supercharger they will deduct the price of the catch can from the price of the supercharger. Plus they paint your catch can for no extra. Plus your breather will come in the same color.

Same as above....RX and Elite are the two big players as you put it. I went with the RX can for my LFX because I wanted it painted AGM to match my car.

From What I've read a lot of people use the RX (and love it) that's what I just ordered I called RX products (941-721-1826) and got it for $139 free shipping, I told them that JDP motorsports offered free ship and they gave it to me I only have 520 miles on the car just got it so I am going to protect it from the beginning.

I have the RX catch can & breather. I like it & it was easy to install. You can get it painted the same color as your car or other colors.
Heard nothing but good things about the RX catch can, lot of people run them I would recommend using the RX catch can.

Same here. I didn't get the breather though, but I may eventually.

I just put my catch can on.
The outlet line, or rather the intake manifold vacuum fitting seems cheap, and I am worried its not making a perfect fit now with the hose for the can now attached. Is this a non-issue or is the intake going to suck it down and make the seal, or should i expect a CEL?
