D3PE Atmospheric Catch Can System!

We at D3 Performance Engineering have always put emphasis on function AND form in everything we do! That being said we recently developed our own catch can system that we believe to deliver the best of both by using high quality components, larger -10 valve cover vents, and building each by hand in house! Made in USA! Recommended for all ZL1 owners and a must for those pushing higher power levels than stock!










Strategically vented to prevent as much odor from entering the cabin as possible (Review from customer here http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...0&postcount=19 )




Constructed with precision cut aluminum, high quality fittings, braided nylon hose, and tig welded in house!













Why is a catch can important?? Photos below of ZL1 with less than 1k miles since this was last cleaned






System will be offered both as a DIY where you can have the supplied fittings to your valve covers as well available in a complete bolt on system with welded valve covers provided and an options core charge based on sending your stock valve covers back.

Should have these available on the web store in the next few days!

The system looks great Especially with your coolant reservoir tank. Both are on my next mod list.

Evan,
I haven't heard of these systems before.
I see the lines connect to the top of the valve covers.
This catch can is not the same as the ones sold by RX or Moroso, for example, that connect on the bottom part of the engine. Would the D3 Can replace those or used in conjunction?
Thanks.
Cass

It replaces it. The D3PE can connects to the same place as all others on the market AND to the valve covers.

By the pictures, there are 3 lines. Two from the valve covers and another I assume from the bottom part. Do you plug the bottom engine inlet that will not be connected to anything?

Our system uses the oem valley breather location and diameter, we supply a hose that slips over the fitting. The port on the IM that used to go to it gets plugged. As for the breather lines on the oem valve covers, the fittings get removed and the ports get opened to 5/8 and -10 AN male fittings get welded on. We supply the AN hoses that connect from the can to these, the port on the intake pipe is capped. Our system totally removes the pcv system from the intake, allowing nothing but fresh air to be brought into the engine. No contaminated air charge, no oil or oil residue.

The products this company makes look like quality products. They appear to be ZL1 specific and will not work for other applications. I have a Whipple on an SS and would like an intercooler tank like they make to replace the plastic tank supplied, but it will not work on the SS. I like the catch can but it mounts where the Whipple coolant tank mounts. I think they are missing on an expanded market by not offering variations to these products. Just saying.

The only catch to that is we would need one of every different application to make the different systems requested and be accurate and it would be hard to keep the cost down on something like that which there might not be a demand in higher quantities. If anyone in the Houston area has something different and would like something made we could absolutely do it and save the drawings/dimensions for future use but we don't really do the in and out day to day builds as much as just production fabrication and engine management/tuning so we don't always have the opportunity for every scenario.

Cool. Thanks for the explanation.
