Re: Oil catch can

yep billet but they seem (I hear) to run afoul of Mr. Trademark Enforcer once in awhile and close then re-open at new url and think that happened very recently over some Mopar "issues"....I have their red/blk can in mine and love it...heads stay cleaner

Re: Oil catch can

I have a BT one, also. Got it just before the latest TM snafu. Great piece. Too bad they get whacked around so much.

Re: Oil catch can

i bought the Billet Technology oil catch can for my 2016 SRT. sorely disappointed.

1. The bracket they shipped wasn't long enough (yes my order indicated this was for a 2016 SRT).
2. The hole pattern on the bracket they shipped was incorrect (too close together).
3. The new bracket they shipped was a pain in the ass. The through holes they drilled in the aluminum bracket are way too big for the mounting machine screws and there are interference/clearance issues. It is physically impossible to mount the catch can with the hardware they provided. Fortunately, i had some spare hardware laying around and got it done.
4. the instructions are useless. I mean, the pics don't even match the current vehicle design

This could (should) be a 15 min job. instead it's hours all said and done. Scratching my head, questioning if "this" will work, or "that." Running back and forth to the toolbox (if you're not running to the hardware store!). It just pisses me off that something so simple has to be a "owner re-engineer" job.

As of Nov 2016 Billet Tech is not ready to ship these. I speculate they have not actually installed one, prior to production, in an actual 2016 SRT. They obviously short-cut and just adjusted some pre-existing design. Busted Billet Tech! Get you sh_ together. Ironically, their website, professing "do not accept cheap imitations" convinced me to pay the super premium from these guys.

I got 'er done, and it works well. After one week of driving there was already plenty of oil it had caught, but this thing is nothing more than a nice aluminum can with some aluminum shavings as a "filter." Simple design and all are going to be the same. Don't over pay.

BTW, if you select, say "Black" finish on the fittings, the fittings are still the same brass ones, they are just coated. The coating isn't 100%, it flakes off VERY EASILY, and the threads are obviously affected. Just spray paint the brass ones. Which BTW, they couldn't get the threads right either on the can that the fittings thread into, as if you fully set the threads, you're just stuck with whichever position the 90 deg elbow sits at. For example, the hose wants to go vertical to the front, but you are stuck with the position it sits at (possibly facing the wrong damn way you want it!). Just pisses me off. You can't over tighten it... you'll easily blow the soft threads. You can't loosen it to get it in the right pos, then it leaks air. Ughh!!! They could have made two and forever been done, but nope, they just appear to willy nilly cut the threads in. The whole thing is slapped together, which is what any cheap "imitator" is going to do.

have fun.

Re: Oil catch can

bummer, yeah I noticed that elbow/thread thing too but mine is pointed a usable direction....mine are the thick black paint/coating so I be they fitted the pre-production stuff raw brass/anodize/alum finish which would give the elbow a solid 1/4+ extra turn on the threads.

glad it all worked out in end, after a little pain..."what does not kill you, only m..."

Re: Oil catch can

We have the new ones UPR just released. We test fitted on our Jeep and we are waiting for one more spacer for perfect fitment. These come with the Z bracket for the cleaner look. They retail for $199 plus shipping but we have them for $185 shipped. I would be interested in doing a group buy in order to reduce the price.

FYI the can is pictured in my hand for you to get an idea of how large it is. Im 6'5" and this is a massive sized can.

The UPR ones come with the Z bracket. We installed it on ours as a test fitment and it was spot on. If your picky, we would be sending you an extra 5mm spacer so there is no touch with the covers. Also where you mount the z bracket, you have to pop a plastic plug and slightly open the bracket for the bolt to slide in. Took us 2 minutes to do.
