that's just it. they're all the same. buy the one you like the best, or fits your budget the best. don't make a mountain out of a mole hill, lol. it's just not that serious. there is no HP to be gained with one of these cans btw. it's merely to keep your currently clean running engine, running clean. a proper baffle under the fresh air intake side of the pcv system would make this catch can basically irrelevant.

OK, enough reading...just ordered the Elite can from JDP Motorsports (Elite Oil Catch Can for the V6), on sale for $155 plus free shipping. Went with black. Looking forward to getting it on before the car even hits 2K miles.

I have the Elite on a 2010 LS3, & Rx on 2011 1 ss/rs L99. Bought them both from JDP motorsports. To me these 2 are the top of the line. You have such a great looking car. I would get 1 powder coated color of car,W/braided lines. If you want 2 see it mounted & lines check my build.

Thanks........... that was my point. Wanted great looking under the "hood" but so many say about the Elite being easy to empty. Since you have both how hard is it to empty the RX. Also, with the RX/Elite can you get show mounting hardware????? I've waited this long I want the right one!!!!

Any oil ingestion will cause detonation which the PCM will pull timing so power is lost there....so yes, the avg can will not result in more power, but one that traps all the oil makes a big enough difference to result in an avg of 1-3 MPG (small truck/van fleets buy these just to save fuel....not to extend engine life).

Also, you only want fuel and air in the combustion chamber.....oil does not burn well. In fact it wont burn at all unless heated to a high temp and or pressure, and then it is a very incomplete burn resulting in less energy released per explosive event (combustion) so that equates to less power and poor fuel economy.

When tuning a big boost engine we can make 20-30 more RWHP stopping the oil ingestion with the right can (99% are not worth using). On a NA car it may be 3-4 rwhp, but it hurts all the way around if your getting any engine oil ingestion via the intake air charge.

Read this page and look at all the pictures of the cans dissected, the test results for each, and why they do or don't http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...+needed&page=3

work well/

Saying all are alike is like comparing a Kia to a Ferarri.

catch can installation resulted in 3mpg gain? i'd like to see this data please. my opinion on it so far is an overpriced gimic marketed to unknowledgable sheeple. i believe there is benefit to it, but $180 (normal price) is a little outrageous. i could buy a lot of seafoam and build a pretty extravagant baffle for that.

This is by FAR the best looking. It's not specifically made for our cars, but it doesn't matter. Just get the right fittings for it. You'd want a 1/2" NPT to -6AN adapter if you want to use AN fittings, which would be the nicest. You can also take the top off, but it's just a bit more involved than the RX. This is the one I've been planning to do but haven't yet.

Here is a link to a study by the University of Maine's Engineering department:
http://umaine.edu/met/capstone-proje...arator-team-2/

And a ton of other examples. When ever you are stopping the oil ingestion, the engine does not experience the detonation caused by it, and the ECU/PCM will keep the timing advance at optimum running more efficiently. It is impossible if driven the same not to.

Just ask anyone with a SS that has run 87 octaine in it and the detonation has caused the PCM to default to the low octaine tables. app 4-5% less power and fuel economy.

Can you explain in detail how in the combustion process it would not? Just go into the start to finish of the fuel/air mixture and what takes place in the combustion chamber...then how adding a contaminant that does not burn well would have no effect on both power and efficiency.

Were all ears....(and your degrees, experience, and qualifications that would support this explanation).
