Thank you everyone for your orders. The response has been amazing.

One thing I have seen on another brand (Moroso) is the incorporated drain tube with turn valve to empty it. It seems like a good idea for consideration.

Yours appears to be equal or as good as any out there. Connector bracket nicely done as well.
It is larger than an Elite (size comparison photo posted earlier in this thread) or Mike Norris catch can. It is closer to the size of a RX. The size is optimized for the way it was designed to function.

This explains it very well. A valve adds complexity which increases the likelihood of problems. It also tends to be harder and messier than simply unscrewing the bottom, pouring out the contents, and screwing the bottom back on.

Dual outlet is not required for the ZL1 but it is for certain FI set ups.

The cans are currently shipping with the upgraded -AN fittings with push lock adapters for free as part of the product launch. The braided hoses should be ready later this week. They will be sold as a separate hose "kit" specific to the model.

So after 233 miles with the catch can on, below what was in the can when I check it this afternoon.

I'll be checking it again around 500 miles and then 1000 miles, but seeing as this isn't a daily driver, it might take me a few weeks.

Thanks. I would like to order it all together if possible. If I wait; can I still get the free upgrade fittings?

We will be offering the upgraded fittings for free through the entire first production run. There is some time but they are selling fast than we had even hoped. We will run out before we will be able to get another run completed.

Here is a link the the installation instructions. There is not a Magnusen specific install instruction, yet. However, it is pretty much identical except that the PCV inlet is on the side of the supercharger.

install is pretty easy. The toughest part is probably disconnecting the stock PCV line on the SS or ZL1. Once you know how the connector works, it's a breeze. I suggest doing the install when the car is cool, because that connecter release is kind of on the bottom, near that hot metal! (learned that the hard way)

Get a quality looking piece offered right when their is a void in the market and that'll happen. They couldn't have found a better time for a release of a new product.

We feel the same way. We have been kind of caught off guard by the response.

We are not going to be able to offer the bracket separately for the time being. We need all the brackets we have to fill catch can orders. The response to the catch can has been much bigger than we expected and we are going to run out of them before we can get a second production run done.

The braided hose kits are now available though. I know there were a lot of people waiting on that. I can post a link but it is listed on our site at the same location as the catch cans.

What would the other side of the line look like that goes to the motor? I assume the end in the picture gets screwed to the can. Are these going ot be delayed shipment? Hoping to order tomorrow!

Ok, I am going to need the Braided Hose to use with the LS3 with a Magnason Supercharger, I will need a fairley long hose like the L99 hose to go from the Drivers side rear intake Manifold to the Catch Can, And then another hose from the Catch Can to the Inlet nipple on the Supercharger, how do I go about ordering this?

You are correct about the picture, that is the Catch Can end. Since the other end (the engine) connection is dictated by GM, it is simply the cut end of the braided line with a clamp. (No offense to the General)

We have not had a chance to measure for a maggie line. I will see if I can get someone local in here soon to get a measurement for that.
