No, don't recycle back into the engine... And you'll see why when you empty your catch can.

As for pricing, there are several vendors here that have sales at times. You can email us direct as well: sales@eliteengineeringUSA.com




Make sure you always empty these before they get more than 1/3 or so full to ensure they still trap all possible. If left to fill then the oil and other contaminants are still pulled in.



I agree.. Only 1 person has had an issue with this. And we don't know what other circumstances are involved.. He may have never emptied his catch can which would cause issues, or how he took care of the car too.

I didn't put on my Elite catch can until I had 25k miles on the car. I now have over 100k.
