Can someone with an elite engineering catch can post a pic of their hose routing? Preferably driver side mounts

Okay everyone. I keep hearing about these "catch cans" found out what the purpose it and what not.. But is it something to get if you're already like 24,000 miles in without one?

Here is my install. I know its not a driver side mount but it still will give you the idea of how the lines are going.

I didn't. I had the Elite Directions to go by. I can see if I still have them and attach them so that you can see them.

Edit: I found the instructions. Let me try and upload the PDF

If you can that'd be great. We're they LLT specific? I found some online that showed an LFX. If those are the ones you used, I'll use those. I just didn't know if there were any differences in install from LLT to LFX

They are almost identical the only difference with elite is the bracket and fittings. In the LLT instructions they use a V8 to show the can mounted and I explained to them that mounting from the raditor on the LLT is a really big hit or miss and elite said they were thinking about just changing the LLT over the to LFX bracket and fittings.

Yup I just routed the lines and attached them to the can. I had the Rx can before so my PCV line was already cut just needs to put the elite can in. And no problem i had the attachments in my email from elite so they werr very easy to find. Have to say I'm much happier with the elite can the RX because of its draining method

I'm game. If camaro nationals are in Houston again, I'll be there.

Oh and I have headers that are going to be installed by LMR soon and I'll be buying the heritage grille by tomorrow.... We must have great minds cuz we think alike

I personally wouldn't do it just because I have yet to see any gains that justify the costs. If you got a good price, that's great though!

Hello. Im no longer the newest member to this corner here. Do post pics. I just got the same car you did (minus the RS package)I love it. I think shes visible in my profile pic.
I straight piped mine two weeks after I got it, for sure louder! I personally love it but I mean if your into pure perfomance and part purchasing then you may want to not go that route. I posted a vid on YouTube that I can send you the link to if you want to get an idea what it sounds like, may change it awhile down the road but it is a cheap alternative with a sound I personally like and have had good reviews on. Anyways welcome. Enjoy

Did you get it from a member or new? I paid 155 for the black can and nickel fittings which is about 15-20 less than normal
