V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can
3 Attachment(s)
I've had the Billet Technology Catch Can installed for about 2 months now. I just checked it yesterday and the can had about an inch of oil in there - so it works pretty well on the pentastar engine. I ordered the V8 Hemi option from BT as the bracket and hose lengths for both engines are the same. Also, I have the BT 'under-the-hood' package. Attached is the list of items from various vehicles that I ordered (with help from Nick at BT) and installed. BT doesn't seem to care to much about the V6 so they didn't even bother to list the package for the V6 even after I confirmed it all fit. Anyway, here is the list and some pics.

Thanks for the info. I see some Pentastar Rams also running them now. That sucks. I was hoping it wasn't needed. I bought the BT can for my Ram during their annual 40% off sale. I may have to grab one for the Jeep next Fall. BT has really nice products.

I grabbed mine at that sale and got 40% off too.

Re: V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can
SO what is the purpose of the catch can? I have seen it on the GM LS motors but not Jeeps.

Back in the days the crankcase used to be vented into the atmosphere.

But as emissions regulations got more stringent they began to route the crankcase vent back into the intake tract.

The problem with that is now that most cars use 5w20 or 5w30 the oil is so light in weight that the oil itself gets sucked into the intake track and gums up your throttle plate or intake tract.

I realized that the 3.6 needs a catch can too the other day when I was swapping my HID capsules and I removed the air filter and so oil on it.

And worse than that I found traces of oil in my intake snorkel.

And not I get a funny rich smell when I warm up the car in the morning that didn't used to be there before.

So a catch can it on my shopping list now and when I install It I need to see how dirty my throttle plate is tool.

Everything listed in the attached pdf file. Does not include the fuse box cover or catch can.

I think the sale is in November, yearly.

Re: V6 (Pentastar) Catch Can
^ Yeah --I think their sale is always Nov 15. The 40% off is only for an hour (around noon). Its one of those items you'll want (Hemi's typically run them), but you won't want to pay full price for. They're not cheap, but it's a high-quality unit. Don't buy the ebay copy-cat (UPR) for a few bucks cheaper. Moroso or BT are the ones to get.

I'd like to add it do my Penastar for sure.. But of course I can't pass up an epic sale lol
