Where could I buy a good quality one?
For the 5.7L HEMI, I bought an "L" bracket at Home Depot (about 5.5-6" on each leg). Drill new hole and mount to the right rear engine brace bolt. The top is cut off at about 4.5 - 5" and the Billet Technolgy bolts to it in a 1/2" hole. Need to buy correct mounting bolt.

Mine collected 1/4" of oil in a 250 mile highway trip. Just checked it yesterday (again), but not much collected this time, just a covering of the bottom.

I cleaned the throttle body when I installed it. Will see if the throttle body stays cleaner, because I cleaned it at 32K and 52K miles and it was filthy both times.

Re: Catch Can Recommended?

Any catch can can be made to work on the 5.7L, so long as you can find a way to mount it and use the right size fittings and hose to connect it to the PCV valve and intake.

Re: Catch Can Recommended?

I'm going to get one. I saw on some websites for some other cars that the prices were a bit cheaper. Maybe because it's based on the quality, etc. I'm going to go to BT.

Re: Catch Can Recommended?

JDUBYA -- I installed my BT catch can the same way -- using your pics for inspiration. I have a question that is somewhat unrelated. You have an airraid intake tube -- how do you like it? what benefits do you see? Is it worth the money?

AMW Catch Can

My favorite is the AMW or the Elite. These were the original designs by Corvette enthusiasts. The AMW was a true design that captures the heavies and only the lighter air is allowed to return. It have a lower and upper chamber.

Re: Catch Can Recommended?

I just bought one and got a great deal for with the bracket! Is it easy to paint them? The one I'm buying is Blue.

Right now I'm using it with the stock air filter. Once this one needs replacing I'll probably upgrade to a dry filter like the Amsoil Ea. Honestly, I didn't notice anything in the way of performance gains. If you take off your stock intake tube/resonator and flip it over, you'll see the main chanel looks just like the Airaid. It's the same size too. All the Airaid does is removes the resonator chambers to make it louder. It does sound sweet at WOT though, but now my Gibson exhaust kind of drowns it out.

Pros
Sounds badass
Engine bay looks better/frees up some space

Cons
Unnoticeable to my butt-dyno

However, that doesn't mean there weren't ANY power gains, I just couldn't tell. If you've got the cash, want a more aggressive sound and a better looking engine bay, I say go for it. I don't regret the purchase. HTH.

Why? Quality. Can't beat Billet Techs build quality. Its a solid chunk of metal thats been machined out. No place to fail.

Lots of the others are simply welded sheetmetal (don't know about the EE). IMO, welds are places where mistakes can be made and leaks can occur. I'd rather avoid them if possible.
