Re: oil catch can

There's no reason why you couldn't. You'll just have to fab a way to mount it. Also be sure to get a can with a baffle in it.

BT can is probably your best bet, but any catch can will work if mounted and hooked up properly.

Re: oil catch can

MAke sure you use heavy duty reinforced tubing for hooking it up to your PCV. Coolant hoses from a parts store are not and are dangerous. If there is the slightest puncture or crack, you risk inhaling CO gases, which can be fatal or cause permanent brain damage. Where a code will normally be thrown if the egr or pcv valve goes bad, there will not be a code for a leaking tube you put in.

Look at the Billet Technology oil catch can. http://www.custombilletstore.com/Hem...an_p/20010.htm Make your own L-bracket mount from Home Depot (6" x 6" x 1" wide). Mount to the rear bolt of the passenger side cross-brace, near the PCM. Leave enough room underneath to unscrew and empty it. Bracket costs about $2.50. Think there is a how-to thread on here somewhere.

PCV valve won't generate a DTC. Emissions hose or heavy duty fuel hose will work well. The length with the BT oil catch can wasn't long enough so I bought one with longer length (about 2 ft). May need hose clamps to properly hold the hoses on.

Re: oil catch can

YU[p, I also mounted my Billet in the same place, pass side bolt on crossbrace, with the L bracket from Menards. I used steel web reinfored clear tubing with hose clamps. Check the CC about every 3-4 weeks, and there is about an ounce collected in there. I also removed the Hemi engine cover as it presses against the hoses slightly.
