The mike Norris can is one of the better designs. Can go wrong with it.

The link you posted shows a bottom draining Mike Norris can. So other than capacity it looks externally very similar to the RX can.

In the installed location it looks like it would be a pain to get to the valve. RX usually mounts theirs in an easier to access location.

Internally they are very different.

I do not know about the Norris can or it's available mount points. Sorry.

I worked with Elite to help design their mount on the LFX engine cover bracket. So I know it is possible to mount the cans in such a location. Whether Norris makes a bracket like that is another issue.

Do be aware with a bottom draining can, you have to secure the drain tube so it does not come into contact with moving parts.

When it comes to catch cans, the sooner the better.

Should be installed ASAP if you plan on keeping the car for a long time.
