Wow, I apologize there SC2150, my last posting about a coffee can was to "set you up" as I expected another diatribe of a response......but holy moly, that must have taken a whole 3.5" disk you have stored for this one.

I bought mine from Elite, think it was out of Colorado somewhere. Anyways, it was $180 plus about $18 "shipping and handling", whatever. Must admit, it was nice machined aluminum, nice UFC threads, anodized blue dyed. Cheap Chinese fittings, but that is to be expected these days. Ditto for the hoses, almost brittle from the box.

Anyways, sent it back on my dime, USPS regular ground, another $5, then Elite refunded my $$$ minus the $18 "shipping and handling", so I am out about $23, no big deal, wasted more on that in many different circumstances.

Once again to all who like catch cans: God bless you all, Merry Christmas. Hope you are happy and enjoy it.

Just saying for me, not so much. We agree to disagree. Having said that, I live for a debate, so as long as you keep at me, I will respond.

Happy New Year!

tony

What's your next target? Ported throttle bodies?
I think it's time you call a truce on this subject.

Nope, just Catch-cans, OnStar and Sirius, but with Sirius, at least I get instant gratification listening to Stern and Jon Gibson on Fox Radio.

But thanks for asking.

Wow what a thread!
We should now start a new one on wheather all seasons are enough to make it through
6" of snow! (no way in hell, wintertires are awesome and make the camaro a total fun machine in the snow!) LOL
Anyway,
Just bought a catch can but have been waiting for three weeks. SC2150- sounds like you are busy, good for you and thanks for being one of the most informative vendors here!
Cudos also to you for mentioning the competition and endorsing the good ones, don't see this often.

I have been told by a moderator with a smoking chimpanzee to stop in this thread, so this is it.

As I stated many times, it is your $$ and do as you please, no reason to personalize it nor anything but "opinions".

I wish I had all of the vendors' here knowledge and experience with GM cars, esp. Camaros, so for that I concede and am thankful for.

Cheers all.

tony

This is a good thread for the technical aspect of all involved with proper crankcase evacuation and inherent issues. Lets keep specific questions coming on ANY application (even the old classics to todays 4 cylinders).

This is a subject that there is so much to learn about and so much misunderstanding and misinformation flying around the internet.

I'll leave this thread with a bit of advice.

"Never argue with a fool. They will just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience".
