Well, I just ordered an Elite catch can. Perhaps I should PM "tonyko1" and see what I am missing?
Thanks for the info.
I'm sure I too, will have my 2 cents worth, in the near future.

Just picked up my 2013 2SS RS 1LE last week and it came from GM with a catch can installed! The catch can was shipped from IET in Aubourn Hills, MI to the GM Oshawa plant. It is part number 12653073 and is identified as a CXXXX Separator. You remove the insides of the catch can to access the oil fill hole. I'll see if it works as well as the Elite Engineering catch can we installed on my wife's 2010 2SS RS. If not, I'll be ordering another Elite for the 1LE.

SC2150,

Is there any reason I couldn't run a FI or dual check valve style can now knowing that I will be adding a super charger down the road? I just don't want to purchase the smaller style knowing that I would need to purchase another one later.

Blue has refused to return it for a full refund, but will sell it at a discount? The Elite can is a great can.

The Moroso can looks awesome, but that video is only showing the oil inside...not that almost as much is pulling through into the supercharger. The Elite works over twice as good as the moroso.....try it and see for yourself. Install a clear glass inline fuel filter between that can and the IM and see how much pulls through.

The idea of a catchcan is to trap ALL the oil, not just part of it.

Works easier for me that way and helps someone else out as well I get the elite they get the rx red can and This way won't have to go without a can. I'm a firm believer.
