They are about equal. Elite is a little bit easier remove the collected waste though.

Both are good products. I have rx and have no problems with it.

Main difference that i see:
Rx has a drain tube on the bottom of the unit. Twist a valve open and it drains.

Elite's unit screws off and you pour it out like a cup.


Drain every oil change

i have rx in a matte black finish i think they also have a gloss black as well...easy install and works great. drains as easy as it can get...a tube that sticks down with a valve that is easy to turn on and off....dont see how it can get much easier.

ive been told it makes sense to only use them on NA cars

RX and Elite are both great products that do their job very well. You can't make a wrong decision.

Both are great cans and I had RX on my L99 and Elite on my LS3. Elite easier to empty.

As others have said, both do their job, but many prefer the Elite Engineering CC due to ease of emptying. Let me know if you have any questions,

Best regards,

And that picture says it all.

NOT what you want entering the intake air charge.

Angle the side port up slightly so the hose goes over the bracket.

Mine was tight too, but to turn it to the angle that you need, use a monkey wrench or pliers.
