I think I figured it out!

Well, since my Elite CC was also making this noise on my LLT, I decided to take the fittings off and put new telflon tape on it just to be sure no leak. As I removed the top fitting, I looked inside and noticed in the filter chamber they use some sort of "Scotchbrite" looking material on top of the filter element, that's when I realized that was the cause of the "hissing" noise!
If you take a piece of paper and blow on the edge you hear that sound, now multiply that a couple of times and you get the "hissing" noise. I trully believe the rush of air into that chamber creates that effect. Also, the sound might be more pronounced if you have Ice-olator, plenum spacer, or Ported TB installed.

This is probably not an issue.....a hiss in most cans is as described above is normal, but yes, stiff wall hoses are reccomended so there is chance of collapsing under vacuum. There should be no pressure in any can. Also, if you have a vacuum leak this will usually trip a CEL for a lean conditon, so if that is not happening I would not be very concerned.

One last thing to keep in mind is the serpentine belt hisses (the more miles, the louder) and the brake/vacuum booster pump is right where most cans are mounted so that makes a hiss as well.

Nothing to worry about as long as you did the install correctly.

Always use a stiff wall hose like trans cooler hose or hydraulic rated. Fuel line becomes to sift and collapses under vacuum. And all cans will have noise from the flow through them.

Elite catch can mod

This is how I installed my Elite can. I first added a drain port in the bottom to make it easier to check for any drip, and the used ss fitting and tubing to route beneath engine cover.

I was just about to order one of these when I found this thread.. It appears this is nothing to be worried about, but is the sound so loud you year it inside? If windows down is there a pronounced "hissing" sound as described??

All I can say is remember to check the PCV connection on top of the intake. I moved my car during installation (when I dropped the lock washer) and the car sounded like crap with it not locked in place

Are all Elite cans supposed to have this little drain whole on the bottom? My Black Elite can does not have it and i recently just got it a couple months ago.

Here is a picture showing what I'm talking about.

No, the OP said he made the hole to make it easier to drain..

No, that was added on by the person that bought it. Not really sure why though. I prefer to unscrew the can and dump it.
