Oh well, I have not been under this car yet, time to get a good look. Too bad I had the oil changed by the dealer a couple of weeks ago. Thanks for the reply. I will have to wait until next weekend.
    When I removed mine, the 3 bolts stayed in place. I didn't have to go underneath at all. Maybe I was just lucky, but torquing them down, they didn't spin at all.

    Sounds like life is tough...sigh.

    I suppose you have to take those good days while you still have them.

    Re: Catch Can Install

    just finished the catch can install on my 2012 cts 3.6 di lfx engine. There wasn't as much room as i thought there was in the front so i decided to put in towards the firewall on the passenger side. IMG-20120928-00263.jpg The car has 15,000 miles on it and the oil was changed yesterday so i think it will be a good test to see how much it catches during this next period. I didn't bother to take the car further apart to see how much oil was in there. depending on how much i drain out the next time if i think its worth cleaning out the intake and everything i guess ill have to.

    I did an oil change today and drained my RX catch can at the same time. And WOW
    it had like 100ml of foamy disgusting oil. Do not want that going through my engine. So glad i installed this, and recommend everyone does

    Re: Catch Can Install

    I am still waiting on mine, ordered back in early November. I am glad the RevXtreme is busy but I would certainly like to get my catch can installed. Maybe for Christmas

    Re: Catch Can Install

    Installed my RevXtreme catch can today. I used a 6mm fastner on the passenger side shock tower that was not being used.

    PC240155 (640x480).jpg
    I then just cut the stock tube as seen in the pictures and completed my hose routing. I will see how it goes, may change it later.

    PC260161 (640x480).jpg
    PC260162 (640x480).jpg
    Interestingly I half expected to see some oil residue in the vent tube when I cut it but did not see any. The only other thing I learned was the plastic facia pieces do not like cold. I did it on Christmas Eve day and it was around 20 degrees and I broke the tab off that is right by the catch can .

    I will see how it goes now that the can is intalled.

    Interested in any comments that you all might have especially SC2150.

    Thanks and Happy New Year

    Re: Catch Can Install

    Nice job. Did you order the breather? I don't see it on your oil fill. I'm just wondering if the new lower profile ones are out yet.

    Thanks

    I did but need to send it back as it hits the hood and I do not want to start chopping away at things. I will have to wait for the new lower profile one.

    Re: Catch Can Install

    I'm in the same boat...I need the breather since my TB was all gunked up, but the current one is too tall.

    Any with the to tall breather return it (www.RevXtreme.com) and include a note that it from a CTS and is to tall so we can send the lower profile one in exchange as we source it to fit.

    I don't see any hose clamps being used. I think I would if for other reason than appearance.
