Elite... spent more time rounding up the handful of tools than actually performing the install.

Elite, RX, or Mike Norris are the top three. RX is about 2 or 3 months behind on their orders right now. Elite is probably the easiest to drain.

Elite Engineering all the way, ive had mine installed since i first bought my car. After 14k miles my throttle body was removed for polishing and the inside of it was still dry and shiney new. Long term its one of the best mods for your engine and worth every penny

Not to mention emptying the Elite Catch Can is so easy a caveman can do that as well.

Elite. Just emptied mine after only having it on for 1 month. It had about 10 ounces in it. Wish I had put it on sooner.

I am not meaing stay away from the RX can per say but more or less stay away because tracy is not a good person to do bizz with. He is insulting and rude to his customers and i have seen that the quality of the cans have gone down hill.

I got my elite after fighting to get my money back from tracy since he did not follow through with his empty promises and ALWAYS had an excuse about something..

How about instead of posting in every RX thread about your experience with them you make your own thread in the vendor feedback section. Just an idea.

I just received my catch can from Elite Engineering over the weekend. The install was very easy once I figured what lines had to plug into what. The quality of the Elite is like a work of art. Hopefully it works as good as it looks.
