Re: oil catch can

No thanks. Let him define terms for argument elsewhere.

its obvious some brands are just catchcans but the reason most of us are interested in provent is the separator efficiency.

lets get back to proper hose sizes and whether connectors (which must be smaller diameter to fit inside the hoses) pose a restriction issue that will increase pressure too much. Thanks.

when i saw that Zybane in the other thread was removing the separator filter element from the provent to get the pressure right it made me think the provent wouldnt be worth the $$ without the filter, because then it would just be like the other brands.

Re: oil catch can

I am also interested in hearing of others' experiences with installing catch cans as well as their choice of tubing (size, material, etc). This PCV system is sensitive to pressure changes and I presume it is mandated to be this way by the EPA. I wonder if the sensor can be faked out with a dummy?

If the ProVent filter element cannot be retained within the can due to the concomitant pressure drop it induces (and the sensor cannot be defeated), then there is likely no reason to choose the ProVent over a different type of catch can. The ProVent is damn large, and even Zybane had some difficulty finding a good mounting solution.

Finally, have you ever noticed that when people claim to be ragequitting and deleting their forum account, they never. actually. do.? Every time I see it I catch myself hoping the poster is telling the truth, but then I immediately realize my delusion and anticipate that instead of keeping their promise the poster will return to troll the same thread again within a few posts.

Re: oil catch can

Goon what did you wind up doing, I'm thinking about the Billet Tech CC. Not sure what to do about a bracket with my limited tools. They sell one but its for the Hemi and also on the wrong side of the engine.

Tried the BT CC without joy
CEL thrown P051B crankcase pressure sensor circuit range/performance
This is the CC for the HEMI
The 3/8" I.D. tubing and 90's are too restrictive
Tried 7/8" I.D. Tubing from CC to air-inflow port, no joy
The CC itself may be too restrictive as well??? Since the brass fitting I.D. Is 1/4"
Next will try reposition CC to negate one 90 bend and increase incoming hose I.D. to 3/4", not many good mounting options available
Will need to find 3/4" barb to 3/8" thread, since CC has 3/8" threads
Made temporary bracket from 1/8" galvanized strapping, building department HD/Lowes

Thanks for the update. Please keep us informed if your BTCC works well.

Re: oil catch can

^ The problem (apparently) is determining the specifications needed.

Re: oil catch can

Using brass fittings for plumbing is NOT the way to go, I think the 3/8" sizes are too restrictive, although you need the correct NPT threading for the BT CC
Looking at AN to NPT fitting. These are the ones for braided hose lines but have way more options such as 45 degree bends and more male NPT to Male AN O.D. Options. They may even be larger I.D.'s than brass?
Earls performance makes them

I believe I have determined what is needed

If you have a catch can with no restrictive filter element (baffled only)
With a 5/8 crank case inlet on one side and a 7/8 to air intake outlet on the other side... There should be no codes as this is the least restrictive method to separate the oil vapor.

I Just ordered this from www.saikoumichi.com and will report back with results.

Re: oil catch can

Looking forward to the results! If it works with no codes ill be copying your specs!

How much, if you don't mind me asking, for the final customized version?
