Re: V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can

Hi, I have a GC 2012 limited 3.6L. I put dual exhaust muffler magnaflow but I dont remove the resonator because the sound is not very good. With only the magnaflow muffler the sound is good but I dont have the best power like a cat back. Your cat back is for the HEMI, what's sound do you have?

Sorry who we're you asking for this? Mine is a single axle back.. (Only the muffler changes). There have been a few guys on here with the 3.6 that did duals in the entire magnaflow system and like them a lot.. There is a member
Jeep_Addicted selling his magnaflow cat back on here for like 500

Re: V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can

Do you guys really think this is worthwhile on the 3.6? I'm on the fence.

I think a catch can is worthwhile on any engine

I find it would be interesting to find out how much oil is dumped thru the pcv systems on both me 3.7 and the 3.6 that replaced it. As far as I know I believe I may be the only one to have purchased a catch can on the 3.7. On top of that it will be winter when I get back to the states to install it.

Re: V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can

I just got through with my install. what a work out.

To make it work I had to buy a 5/8 to 1/2 hose joint and a piece of 5/8 heater hose.

When I do the other car it will be like a 10 minute install.

Re: V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can

How the heck to you get to the PVC? Isn't it way in the back -- buried somewhere? I was going to add mine, but I currently have some warranty issues (other leaks). I'd hate the dealer to blame anything on that mod. It also seems like a pain to install. It took 5 min on my Hemi Ram.

V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can

It's not that bad just wait until the car cools down. There is a plastic pipe the comes up from the passenger side valve cover and goes to the fitting at the back of the manifold it's maybe 8 inches long. Pull it out of the valve cover fitting then you need to wiggle it a bit to get it out of the other fitting. Then install the two included brass 1/2 to 5/8 fittings and the hoses from the fittings go on those. The 1/2 side goes in where the plastic tube was at the manifold and valve cover and the catch can hose connects to the 5/8 side of those fittings. Easy now that I know how to do it. All the tutorials suck so if you ever do it I will be happy to show it step by step with pictures

That exlpains why I needed to go buy the other fitting because I only got one in my package. Slapping Forehead.
