I have the Rx can myself and have checked it numerous times and am unable to ever drain anything from it. And yes its installed correctly. I find it to be defective or just a pile of . I am removing it and going with an Elite Can and hope it works better.

That's good to hear. Looks like you're one of the fortunate ones.

Neither of mine worked very well unfortunately. Several days after I installed my first NA RX catchcan, I spun a bearing and luckily the motor was replaced under warranty. It never seemed to trap anything from then on. I never correlated the two but after learning more and reading others experiences, I have to wonder.

My FI catchcan left my IM full of oil unfortunately. I've since learned that the check valves in those are of poor quality.

Best of luck to you, soiledflame. I hope the rest of these guys can somehow get their situations worked out.

Any company that takes you more before they have to the product to ship is not cool in my book. And he no longer answers his phone, e-mails and someone went buy his place and said it was for lease and he is gone.

My Rx CC never caught oil either, but the filter I installed after it did (per Tracy's challenge). This is looking inside my CC from the bottom with a scope. Nice round cut there. I assumed the poor quality continued inside where I could not see and switched to another CC.

If we're talking about effectiveness take a look at my intake manifold after running Tracy's catch can and sc kit for a few thousand miles. I don't say this to be malicious towards one company. But save yourself the trouble and dispute it if you can or ask for a refund and go with another can. I hear elite is good as is Mike Norris. The last time I was here I was sort of prophetizing about the Tracy Lewis Rev Xtreme supercharger kit before I was silenced and we all see how that turned out. I'll be going now but before I do I want to reiterate the fact that I wish you the best of luck whatever method you take.

That is after you installed the Catch Can????



I have the Elite on the clean, and dirty side, and after 4000 miles, the inside of the intake looks as clean as the day I bought the car with 6 miles on it.

Sorry for your troubles.

Wow. This just keeps getting worse and worse with this guy.
How many people are running one of this catch cans right now and are having the same problem and don't even know it?

Not to pile on but after removing the RX SC kit and CC from my car last August and removing the plenum cover this is what I found.




There are better options out there.

Finally! I got an email from him saying he'll refund my money. Not sure if it was the message on the cell, 2 messages on the regular phone, 2 emails, 2 Facebook messages, or the BBB complaint that worked. Now I am anxiously waiting to see the money.

You won't see a dime sorry to say. I've been waiting months on a refund. I also did the FB, Email, BBB and Linkedin. He is essentially on the run from everybody.

If that is the case, then I will get the DA and police involved.
