Re: catch can problems

As ColdCase suggested, you may want to re-consider getting the new bracket from Billet. From the pictures, it looks like your catch can will work with that bracket. I know it will be an additional expense, approx $40, but it would be a much cleaner solution with less risk.

Hey in pic 4 there is a threaded stud that sticks out a little further then the nut.
Why don't you move it to there? Even if you have to redrill the hole in the bracket. You can see it in pic 3 as well


Looks like it would fit there perfect

I have a extra z bracket in silver if ya need it

Re: catch can problems

That bolt is too thick and wouldn't fit thru the bracket hole. It would be more work just to get the bracket hole enlarged

I just finished the installation. Still pretty pleased with he result. Walkthru pics a little later

Re: catch can problems

ok heres the walkthru. if i knew this wasnt going to be so difficult, i wouldnt have made a thread like this in the first place, but here we are.

i went to home depot and picked up an M8 (or 8 mm) bolt x 80 mm long. the reason i went 80 mm is because i wanted to make sure i completely clear the colt pack cover. i also picked up about 20 M10 washers, because they were thicker than the M8 washers. overall, i installed 14 washers, along with the original spacer that came with the kit. i probably couldve installed a few more, just so the catch can could sit out a little more, but its all good. pics below. now i completely clear everything, and dont have to unbolt anything to empty the can.

Re: catch can problems

Nice, but just a comment that there is a pretty long lever arm now and that will have some vibration enhancement. It coming loose can be a disaster, so check tightness often and use locktite. Those washers may compress a bit over time, so you may want to keep an eye on it. Perhaps think about replacing the washers/spacer with a solid piece of pipe cut to length.

thanks for the heads up. I remember I used to check up on my catch can all the time on my 2010 srt8, this one should be no different
