New question... Lol. What is the standard thread size on these canisters? 1/2", 3/8"? Did you use 3/4" and 5/8" barbs at the end of the fittings? If so where is a good place to buy the fittings from. Thx!
The thread size on the Calibre catch can from Supercheap (Australia) is 3/8". The catch can in your picture is very similar if not the same but with a different brand name.

I bought two new fittings from Supercheap and they are both 5/8" hose fitting with 3/8" thread to fit in the top of the catch can. I couldn't find 3/4" hose fitting so I just made do with 5/8" and did the hose clamp real tight.

Re: oil catch can

So a 3/4" hose barb straight to 3/8"NPT thread, is ideal?

Re: oil catch can

I think I'll talk to my Dealership about their thoughts on this. The Principle races a American muscle car in the V8 series here in Australia and he has a catch can in his racing car.

Good job fellas.

Cheers

A 3/4" barb on the inlet of the catch can would be ideal to fit the 3/4" hose from the engine - the inlet and outlet of the catch can are both 3/8" BSP thread.

Re: oil catch can

Has anyone replicated the setup Mopar EcoDisesel has for his Ram 1500 ED?
He has a bunch of u-tube video about his setup using the Morroso catch can on a NA ecodiesel.
I have tried adding in a BT catch can but get the CEL. Have not provided the additional hardware with added pressure boost as Mopar ED did. Like the idea and he claims it works.

Re: oil catch can

Just wanted to update everyone on my catch can install for my 2015 ED Summit. I followed the instructions by Futuresystem and all seems to be working great! No codes. I took the engine up the road to bring it up to temp and spun up the turbo as well. Hopefully the "no codes" will continue. I even ended up putting in a screen above the steel mesh pads just to make sure nothing would come loose. Picture attached. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1429058014.686601.jpg

I like his setup too - don't really want to make holes in my engine pipes though!

For the moment I have a zip tie around the charge air hose temporarily. It's not tight at all. This is just to make sure it doesn't move around. I didn't want to permanently mount it until I know it doesn't throw a code. The plan is to either mount it to a spare threaded hole on the block or drill two holes in the top plastic engine cover and then tie it to there. I like it on top (similar to its current location) just for easy access to drain. I can't mount it by the air filter due to its size and the air line position for the suspension. Hope that helps.
