I purchased a catch can from CFT for my 14’ ED and am having issues installing it. The bracket is welded to the can, so it is not adjustable. The mounting point at the top/drivers side of the radiator places the catch can drain valve in a position where it is pushing against the coolant hose. Has anyone else had an issue installing the catch can?

I will say, I am impressed with the build quality and value for the money, just wish it bolted on without issues.

So I picked up one of these catch cans. My bracket is ok, but I can't seem to figure out how to disconnect the existing hose. There is a different clamp at each end. The one towards the back of the engine is attached to a plastic box, which seems kind of flimsy and might break if you put much force on the hose. The end at the front of the engine has one of those plastic cages around it. Any tips on how to handle these clamps?

same issue here - probably sent the Ram can instead. Didn't reply to my emails so I ended up fabbing a work around with a 90 degree elbow. PIA.

I had the same issue. I ended up fabbing up a bracket that bolts to the block via an empty hole for a 13mm hex head bolt. The new location is much better.

I did notice that there was still a good amount of oil making it into the hose exiting the catch can. It is still capturing a lot of oil from going into the intake, but I had hoped for a better result.

IMO it might be worth looking into a different catch can for these rigs.
