Catch can locations
 
Being that I plan on getting a catch can in the near future , I need some Ideas on where to mount it .
I like the idea of having it on the Strut brace but I cant seem to find that bracket anywhere any Ideas ?

Thanks

Go to the hardware store and get an L bracket. That is what I did and it cost about a dollar.

+1. There's a great write-up on here on how to use a 5" L-bracket and a grinder in order to retain the OEM motor cover. That's what I did and it looks pretty sweet/natural.

Mine didn't come with one. I chose the standard bracket but they cheaped out and didn't send it. If the can didn't have the best ratings, I surely wouldn't be recommending them. Still, their CS sucks, as they denied that they never sent the bracket since I opened the package and found out it wasn't there 2 weeks after it was received.

In either case, the bracket that it [supposedly] comes with is not compatible if you want to retain the OEM engine cover. See previous link for more information.

im sorry you had a bad experience with them. They have been amazing for me. I had to return mine and have it replaced and they made it super easy. It sucks you had to deal with that.

I understand now, i didn't realize y'all have an engine cover to deal with.

Curious, why did you have to send yours back to have it replaced?

The can either didn't have a seal around the "can" part... or i dropped it.. and the oil/heat discolored the catch can. it made it 3 different colors of blue. I sent them a pic and had a new one within days. This one had a rubber ring around the threads, no discoloration.

I even admitted I may have missed the ring.
