Catch Can and 2014 Hemi (non-SRT)

I'm curious to see how many 2014 Hemi (non-SRT) owners are running a catch can and if you are capturing much in the can? Have you see anything bad with the can? I checked my TB at about 4,000 miles and it still looked brand new.....so I'm trying to get an idea of the benefits. Or has the oil blowback problem improved with the 14's???

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

Catch can was first mod I did to my '14 - have over 9K miles on mine now. I check/empty it about every 2nd or 3rd week; it has had about a tablespoon of oil in it each time. I just look at it as that much oil not going back into the top end of my 5.7L. From what I've read and studied about the '14s here and on other sites, Chrysler made no changes to the 5.7L from last year's engine. I highly recommend you install one.

Looks Good

It would be nice to know how much oil you catch say in 1,000 miles or more as I am considering one also.

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

Lol well I know its a bit later then I said I would report in, but I have driven about 3K miles and my catch can was just a little more then half full. Durring this period I was driving very spiritedly because I just got my exhaust installed. and we all know the most oil blow by come when you have your foot down.

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

Hey guys, I am new here but had a question about the catch can install. Can someone provide me with a link to the actual install of this component. I would like to follow some general directions when I perform this job.

Thanks! Happy to be a part of another great community.

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

The catch can install is very straight forward and easy. I think the BT catch can even comes with instructions.

Remove the hose that goes from the PCV to the intake manifold. Then connect the catch can hoses there. Done Lol.

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

That sounds easy enough but what about the mounting of the can? Any specific recommended location for the 2014 5.7's?

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

there is only one mounting location with the BTcatchcan which is right next to the computer utilizing the 2 unused crew holes. .. but you can always buy someone else's can and mount it in your own location
