RX Catch Can Problems

I purchased and received an RX Catch Can from APEX. Everything appeared to be in the box except any sort of instructions, only parts. So, I PM'd Chase at APEX who was going to see about getting me some directions.

In the meantime, my impatience got the best of me and I managed to find them online. So, this morning I took off my engine cover and tensioner pulley and installed the bracket only to find out that the bracket is not long enough. The can will not clear the radiator hose neck below the tensioner pulley.

When I ordered the kit, the only option I saw for the brackets was whether or not you had an intake kit or not, I don't so I ordered the standard bracket.

I have a 2010 2SS/RS LS3.

Am I missing something here?

I double checked the order and it looks right "Vehicle Application: 2010-2012 LS3/L99 Camaro, Catch Can Color: GM Red Jewel Tintcoat, Bracket Type: Standard, Optional Breather: None Selected, Breather Cap Color: None Selected"

I spoke with Paul at APEX. Since I ordered a painted can, it comes directly from RX. He is checked with RX and found out they sent me the bracket for the V6.

RX is sending a new bracket today.
