    Re: Catch Can Install

    Just joined the forum to hopefully share some information and get some information on a potential wagon purchase.

    I just wanted to alert everyone doing this mod that when you go to get your smog check, I'm assuming any state that does them, you will fail for a modified PCV valve. So I wouldn't suggest cutting your original line I'd buy an extra one and mod that if the kit your using doesn't have it already for you.

    Re: Catch Can Install

    I have been thinking about installing a catch can but I'm obsessed with keeping my vehicles original or at least not doing anything that can't be reversed. I was hoping there was some way to remove the PVC hose & substitute it with the catch can hoses but that doesn't seem to be possible. I hate to cut the PVC hose without having a replacement but I haven't been able to locate it online. Does anyone know the number or where I could find it? Does the hose come with a PVC valve? They seem to be molded together. Thanks!

    Re: Catch Can Install

    You can get a replacement stock line, but the RX can with integrated valve has never been not passed in an inspection, and there are over 12,000 of them in use over the past 9-10 years and no customer has ever told us they did not pass. But its possible with the cheap ones.



    To order, call direct: 941-721-1826

    ----------

    Here is a Email we recently received from a CTS owner:

    Hey Tracy, Just wanted to thank you, and everyone at RevXtreme. I bought a catch can from you, for my 2005 CTS. Well since installing it i'm not consuming any oil anymore. I've had a close eye on the oil level since i have installed it and it hasn't used a drop. I don't know how or what that catch can has done to prevent the oil consumption. (I've read your tech tips article and understand the concept of how a catch can work.) I guess i am just baffeled that it something so simple like that could work.



    Anyway just wanted to thank you. I was at my last wits end with this car and was about to put it back on the market, after the dealer replaced two motors under warrenty.



    I'll be purchasing another catch can from you in the future. I have a 2000 Camaro SS that is getting a turbo as we speak, as a fun project street car.



    But thanks again. It was definetly worth the wait.

    Re: Catch Can Install

    Thanks for the reply, SC2150. I'm not worried about passing inspection, I just have an unnatural hang-up about altering anything. I think the first emissions test isn't for five or six years in NJ & I don't keep a car that long. I'll probably order a catch can as soon as I deside how I want to mount it, which could take a while.

    Bandit1, if you are referring to me could you tell me how to access it. I'm not too smart & I don't know anything about PMs. Thanks!

    Wayne's World,

    From another oldie, Bandit was saying he sent a PM (private Message) to Gabe at SRX. You can send a private message by clicking on the author's name in a post and choosing to send them a PM (this option has to be set up in profile). Hope this helps! Marv

    Re: Catch Can Install

    Thanks for clearing that up for me, Tbbt. I misunderstood his post but I should have known that he wouldn't have any way of knowing I had a message. I think. I said I wasn't too smart.

    Wayne's World--My post was directed at "SC2150" (RX Performance) letting him know that I had sent him a PM (Private Message). Sometimes they receive a ping from a thread posting before noticing a PM notification. He received it and we connected. Tbbt beat me to it and was kind enough to explain the forum tech stuff...Thanks Tbbt.

    Re: Catch Can Install

    SC2150 - What is the difference between the single and dual check valve catch cans? The web site seems to have the same description for both models.
    Is the dual check valve just for forced induction? Or does it just have two check valve to catch more oil?

    Thanks!

    Re: Catch Can Install

    Hey everyone. Just installed my RX catch can & had a question. I searched for an answer with no avail. Is the drain valve supposed to be all the way up (fully screwed) or all the way down (fully unscrewed)? It came out of the box all the way unscrewed. Thanks for any help
