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).
Thanks, I appreciate that. Look forward to hearing your thoughts after you get it installed.

Just skip that Big Mac or Whopper and you won't even notice an extra pound.

Very cool Chase - looking forward to maybe seeing a cross-section of the internals and hearing about color/pricing options. My birthday is coming up in November!

As a vendor we are not allowed to post pricing info or links to our website in technical forums but the catch can is live on our website so you can go check it our. Right now the only color available is the satin black anodized finish. Going forward we may add a few other options but we are not going to get into color matching every factory color.

We don't have one that we have chopped catch can but here are a few detail photo. This is with the bottom unscrewed so you are looking at the bottom of the filtration chamber.



Here is one looking into the bottom of the filtration chamber. You can see the media inside.



And this is the filtration chamber removed from the upper portion on the catch can and the filtration media removed. As you can see, it can be completely disassembled so that is can be cleaned. The inner wall also features a ribbed texture to prevent gasses from working the edges and slipping around the filtration media and out the bottom.

do you need a check valve with this or is it built in the can?

I just purchased one of these today, does anyone have instructions on putting this on a Car with a Magnuson Supercharger?

You do not need one.

We are working on application specific instructions right now and will have them available for download.

I'm happy with my Elite can but I'm glad to see there is someone stepping up and making what seems to be a quality piece especially after the Rx debacle.

Good job Apex.

Apex Catch Can

Chase... it seems a lithe larger than the others out there. Don't know the benefits of that or not.

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.

Something in the bottom of the can so when you take the bottom half out you can just unscrew the plug to empty it instead of pouring it out? Seems like it would be a cleaner way to empty it out.

In the respect of how it is drained it's similar to an Elite can.

All you do is unscrew it and pour it into the drain pan when you change your oil, the little bit of oil that gets on the threads and o ring serve to lube it when you thread it back on.

Adding a drain valve just adds a source for possible leaks vacuum and otherwise. It overly complicates something that does not need to be.

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.
