+1 Many of us FI owners have seen blow by on the RX cans. At first you think it's working well. But when you put the car through its paces the can can't keep up. Their can also has faulty drain values over time. I had to modify mine. But may invest in a Apex one, Chase has helped my greatly in the pasted.

We can't wait to start getting them installed on the V6 cars. Production on the brackets should start in the next week or so.

My catch can just arrived today! Pulled it out of the box. Man, that thing is hefty and solidly built. Well-made materials that fit nicely together. Hopefully it'll perform as good as it looks.

Congrats! Be sure to post some pictures and let us know what you think after you get it installed.

Excellent news! I think you may have a few customers ready to go already.

Ordered. Can't wait to install. Get to learn new things too! Never installed a catch can before. But, gotta learn, as I want this ZL1 to last me till I'm 40! (I'm almost 28, it'll make it!)

What's in the box???



Easy Peasy. Even a Caveman can do it.

Install took all of about 15 minutes or so once I preassembled the hoses and such. Hose barbs nearest the can stretch the hose too much to slide the black spring clamps over the hose, though. So I didn't use them. But they're so friggin' tight on there I doubt if they'll leak. I even used some blue threadlocker as recommended on the bracket to canister bolts. Looks like it belongs.













Day 1: 1473 miles on car, 0 miles since install....nothing in the can yet... I'll come back and post mileage and amounts when I get something.

Heres mine on a 2011 Callaway Camaro. I had to flip the Bracket 180 degrees, So the Catch can would clear the Intercooler Resevoir.

They fit over the hoses, but they are at the max open position for them. I had them on my hoses until I switched out to the braided hoses.

No doubt. We are getting hit up like crazy by V6 owners. Won't be long now.

Thank you for your orders.

The catch can itself is universal. All you need is a bracket and hose for the application. Right now we do not have a turn key package for the 09+ CTS-V but it is on the to do list.

Due to overwhelming demand Apex Motorsports Catch Can is currently OUT OF STOCK. We expect our next production run to be complete sometime in mid-November. In the mean time, if you order your credit card will automatically be charged when you hit the "SUBMIT ORDER" button. Orders will be shipped in the order they are received.

Ok, I have a 1le with the factory catch can that came from the factory. Is it necessary to put another catch can on? If so should the factory one be removed if a after market catch can is installed? Thanks.
