Yes, it can be completely disassembled. It does have a filtration chamber with stainless steel media and multiple internal baffles. The can has three outlet ports so it can be configured however you need it, single outlet or dual, and using whichever outlet ports work best for your set up. Jeremy could reconfigure his to use one of the side ports so that the 90 degree fitting would be facing the firewall. Hex head screw in caps are included so that you can cap off the unused ports.

I guess you managed to get some details out of me.

That looks very nice, I could live with that. So tempting to finally order a catch can. Braided lines as an option?

Is there an F.I specific can? Looking to replace my cans from that "other" company.

I will be switching the side hose around this weekend to see if I like it any better facing towards the firewall.

One of the unique features of our catch can is that it has three outlet ports so it can be configured however you need it. All hardware needed for a single outlet install is included and you will have the option to add an extra outlet fitting for FI applications that require it. Hex head plugs are also includes to cap off any outlets not in use.

I assume your can has had vacuum leaks out of the check valve fittings on top of the can? I had non stop vacuum leaks and no amount of Teflon tape would hold a vacuum. I even added O-rings to the valves before screwing them back in, but they still were leaking, but were much better. I ended up sealing them a urethane adhesive which has worked.

But I like the design of this can apex have presented. Might have to switch after my wallet recuperates.

Should be available as a separate item soon. Will be in "kit" form, specific for ZL1, SS (LS3 or L99), etc. Probably sometime next week.

I was looking for a price for the bracket only? If I switched catch cans I would like the option to have the steel braided lines.

So I went ahead and changed the side hose to point towards the firewall. It literally took me 10 minutes to do it. Took me longer to get my tools and put them away then it did to remove the can from the car and change the location. With the quick connect fittings an 11/16 wrench can remove both hoses and a 10mm socket/ratchet can remove the entire can from the car in less then a minute. The install was just as quick.

How much does it all weigh? Any chance you still have the box and could check?

My Z is a little weight conscience.

That would have to be a question for Apex Chase. I didn't have it shipped to me or have the original package due to my car being a test car for it. Just had all the parts in hand and installed it at a Cars and Coffee meet here locally.

The weight on your shipping label is 3.8 lbs. Keep in mind that includes everything; the catch can, bracket, hose, fittings, hardware, packing material, and the box itself.

I know, just was looking for an idea is all. I'll be weighing everything when I get it.

And no worries Chase - I'd still install your catch can even if it weighed 13.8 lbs. (would have to remove more than just the center speaker afterwards though).
