Replace the CAI and do the catch can at the same time. You may need to position the hoses carefully to be able to put the Hemi engine cover back on. When i installed my K&N CAI I also installed the BBK 85 throttle body.
Altitude looks sick.

Just a heads up for anyone installing this or anything under the hood for that matter... I was installing my new billet catch can and was just about finished, I only had to connect the last hose that leads to the nipple at the oil cap. I was needless difficulty getting the hose end on the nipple so I went over to the passenger side by the strut tower and tried to see if I could get a better angle and shortly after that I heard a loud pop and then hissing like the tire popped. I wish it had been the tired because it would have been and easy fix. Anyways the hissing was the front air shock hose assembly, the right angle plastic fitting snapped and all of the nitrogen from the quadra lift system was blowing of the strut and the ql system kept trying to pump it back even though the hose was not connected. I was so pissed at myself for ducking this up, such and easy install and never thought anything would go wrong. That plastic fitting is extremely fragile, I barely put weight on it, just a slight pressure from my chest when leaving over it.
I had to drive my car which was now officially a low rider, felt like a nascar car when I was driving because the jeep would hit a bump and it would bounce up and down. I have 2500 miles on my car and already had to take it in to get fixed and had to pay $441 to get it fixed and was without my car from 3 days because that part is a no stock part.
I don't know if this would happen to anyone else but I figured I would share so that people knew what to look out for. The quadra lift is new to me so I would looking out for anything like that. What really pisses me off is how the take use a cheap fragile plastic fitting and connect it to a metal coupling at the top of the shock. Why not use metal, and have a metal to metal connection!! Ridiculous.

Re: Catch Can and 2014 Hemi (non-SRT)

I noticed the fittings going into the shock towers on my '11 right after the purchase. Thought at the time that they looked mighty flimsy for such an important part of the suspension. Jeep couldn't spend 20 cents more and used metal??

I know this is an old thread but I ordered a BT catch can and just got it installed after reading how much oil some of you were collecting. Its pricey but it looks great and the quality is spectacular (esp the red finish!) Only time will tell if it is a worth while mod in terms of functioning but no matter what it dressed up the engine bay nice. Thanks for the heads up about the ql air fitting on the shock tower, i was able to avoid any problems with it.

stuff like this is why I have our jeep as fully loaded as possible without Air. Thanks for making me feel better. Btw catch can works well on the 5.7. Improves fuel mpg as well. At least it did to ours by about 2mpg.

Re: Catch Can and 2014 Hemi (non-SRT)

The only downside to the catch can is since it is metal with hot gases flowing into it, it generates and quickly fills with condensation in the winter months up north, so has to be emptied fairly often. Other than that well worth it. I've had mine for 5 years and love it, btw there is no way of seeing 2 mpg increase from just a CC, there is just a slight mpg increase, if any.

maybe we installed it around the time the engine was getting broken in? Yes in the winter months we have to empty ours every week. Compared to the summer 2-3 weeks. Btw we put on 750-1000 miles a week.

Re: Catch Can and 2014 Hemi (non-SRT)

I have two questions.
1) Does the catch can void any part of the warranty?
2) What happens if you forget to empty the catch can and it fills all the way up with oil or condensation?

Thanks.
