Venting to the atmosphere you are defeating the evacuation of the damaging combustion byproducts and only relieving pressure.

These compounds must be evacuated while still in a gasseous or supended state BEFORE they mix with the engine oil. A vented can is what you would use with a belt driven vacuum pump set-up as the pump takes care of the evacuation.

Yup, understand that 100%. So obviously the return from the catch can goes to the vac side of the supercharger and not the pressured side yes?

No problem! I like to have my stuff detailed.
I once did a whole series on how to build a guitar from scratch, but it was too long to put on youtube and my computer messed up with the editing of the video.

6 foot crow bar and a BFH

Just gently lift it up, it is mounted in Rubber gromets.

No, because I think there may be a few drops in there at this point. I am waiting to see what I have after a few thousand miles, not a few hundred.

Is there a large advantage to going with a dual valve over the single valve? Prefer to keep things simple unless there is good reason for not..

It only takes an extra 15min to install the dual. 1/2 dill into the intake tube and intake tube comes off in 1 min.

I will let them chime in with the tech but if if you call them the will explain to to what they recommend the dual valve.

Thanks for the clarification. I will get in touch with them. Proly end up going the dual valve route. What's one extra tube in the engine compartment anyway?

Hey guys.
I received my can this weekend. I can't wait until I install it, but I have a couple questions. Where to I attach the clear hose from the bottom of the can? And, to check for oil in the can, do I have to disconnect the couplings and invert the can?
Thanks for the help.
Cass

Cass, the clear hose is the drain so you can attach it to what ever you want, or leave it hanging. Don't run it into the pulleys or belts though. I just shortened mine up a bit so it wasn't rubbing on anything.

Whenever you decide to drain any possible oil accumulated in the can run the hose into some small container, and open up the threaded valve the hose is attached to. No can removal or inversion necessary. Gravity will pull any oil out then close up the valve and go about your business.

I know this thread is old but since Jimmy has shown how to install a catch can about the best of anybody I've seen,I've got a question.First off,I just got my catch can from Tracy, and plan on installing it tomorrow. Mounting the can seems easy enough but I'm wondering one thing. How the hell can you get close enough to the original little hose that has to be snapped off!!! I guess if you took off that big black round thing and all those little lines running in and out of it and maybe took the belt off it would not be as difficult, but everybody says its real simple and takes an hour or less. I guess I just want to clarify this : You can install a Rx catch can with a flathead screwdriver and a socket wrench(used to install the can on the bracket and the bracket on the car). Just using the supplied hose(that you cut in half) and all you have to do is take the engine cover off. Is this correct? Even if you can get the little connecting hose off( with only touching it with a flathead screwdriver) how can you get the two new hoses back on!! I'm not a mechanic, so I've only got your basic tools laying around. I don't have a foot long pair of needle nose pliers!!! I might could reach it if I did.LOL!! I know I'm going to get slammed for asking this but that little connecting hose just looks a little hard to get to. Unless you've got the hands of a new born baby. Thanks for clarifying this for me along with any help anyone can give me!!!

Install the CC in a cool place, it will condense better and do what is made to do.

There is no need for any Check valve if you use the CC inline of the where the OEM was installed. The OEM did not have a check valve.

Small hands definitely make it easier. I used a flat head screwdriver to help get the old hoses off, and used hose clamps to attach the new hoses. I don't see how you could reattach the new hoses without hose clamps.... there just isn't enough room to push the hoses over the lip on each of the nipples.

Yes you can. I just pushed the hoses on with a screw driver. It was a very tight fit so I did not use hose clamps. The hose does not go over the lip. The lip is to hold the clip on the OEM tube.

Well, that being the case, the hoses that came with my RX Catch Can did not fit tightly on the hose nipples. At least, not tight enough that I felt comfortable that they would not come off easily. With the hose clamps, I don't have to worry about it. I guess I may have gotten the wrong sized hoses with my kit.

The hose should be a tight fit, your hose may be bigger. The hose I used was 3/8s
