Re: Catch can efficiency

Watch this video and decide which catch can is easier to empty......Moroso or Billet. On the Moroso all you need to do is turn the valve with a cup under it.

Re: Catch can efficiency

What's the capacity of the Moroso can? The Billet is about 4 oz., but the Moroso looks a little smaller?? I have Billet cans on both my Hemi's and I don't have to loosen bolts or turn the can top to empty either one. My LX has it mounted like the video, and the WK's is mounted to the strut support brace. It takes me longer to drain and wipe out the cans than it does to remove/reinstall them. That video showing the bolt loosening and turning the top is BS. I have big hands too. On the Moroso, I'd also be curious how you get all of the "mayonaise" out in the winter. It's pretty gunky and slimmy stuff and does not flow very well. In the summer, it wouldn't be a problem though, unless you're in a real wet climate. I agree to that $20 for the cheapo isn't a big deal, so why not try it and see for yourself. In any case, if you have a Hemi, put something on it for sure. The choice is yours.

Edit: Also, topat46, on the Moroso, how often to you empty it? In the damp winter I'll sometimes empty them as often as every 800 miles (depending on how damp out it is), but in the summer mine will easily go without emptying between 6000 mile oil changes.

Re: Catch can efficiency

It actually handles the mayo very good. I just put a plastic cup under it and let it drain for a while. I think the Moroso may be larger than the billet (not sure of that) but can hold at least 8 ounces according to the attachment here.

Re: Catch can efficiency

PS# I have mine attached also to the strut tower and I now empty it with each oil change. About 2 ounces captured in 3000 miles.

Re: Catch can efficiency

OK, here are the approximate differences in dimensions. The Billet unit is about 2.5 X 4.75 in. and the Moroso is 3 X 4 in. Maybe some math whiz can figure out the volume in oz. based on the measurements. It's way beyond my simple mind.

Re: Catch can efficiency

I think the important issue here is that they both work (which I know they do). They are both made to last a lifetime and look sharp under the hood. I purchased the Moroso because of its ease of draining.

Re: Catch can efficiency

I bought the BT catch can because of the great reviews, build quality, and they look good! I love mine!

Re: Catch can efficiency

I prefer the Billet tech, removing the canister, emptying then spraying the inners with brake clean to get all the mayo and gunk out of the bottom. I empty it a few more times during winter, since condensate fills it more quickly.

Re: Catch can efficiency

Early I'm new to all this hemi stuff.

In this particular thread is the only information I have on Catch can sludge etc.

But based on everyone's descriptions, this sludge stuff seems to sound a lot like condensate discharge where oil mixes with water.

Again that's pure conjecture and just thinking out loud.

But I am curious if anyone has any thoughts on the wisdom or lack there of of pouring the captured sludge back into the oil filler port; that's where he came from.

Then, it just gets emptied when you change the oil and the filter.

I'm absolutely certain there are probably a number of reasons why that is a horrible idea otherwise everyone would be doing it. So I'm simply inviting comment on how and why.

Putting it back in the crankcase, has to be a hell of a lot better than putting it back into the combustion chamber.

The BT instructions specifically state not to pour the contents back into the crankcase. I empty mine into my oil recycle container (old 5 gallon gear oil bucket).

Yes, the sludge is condensate mixing with the captured blowby liquid. This is only seen in the cold months, when the can needs to be emptied often. Umm, about pouring the recovered crap back into the crankcase, it's like emptying the sink strainer down the sink. There are horrible smelling gasoline combustion by-products that you absolutely do not want in the engine oil.

Re: Catch can efficiency

Just drained my can before heading to work after 1900 miles since last oil change. Didn't take more than 5 mins.

BT FTW.
