** Brand NEW DESIGN -
Elite Engineering's 2nd Generation Catch Can - E2
After receiving a lot of customer requests to design a Larger Catch Can, we are excited to offer the new E2 – Elite’s 2nd Generation Catch Can.
Modeled after our very popular and functional 3-stage, “original” Catch Can with a few more added benefits:

Elite Engineering Catch Can: Often Imitated, but never Duplicated!
Specifically designed for Forced Induction, Turbo or Supercharged engines
Same 3-Chamber Design that made the Elite Catch Can so popular and functional, but with a larger volume
Purpose of your Stock PCV System:
The PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system is designed to regulate and remove fumes from the engine crankcase, and to alleviate crankcase pressure which could cause oil leaks or seal damage. The PCV system routes crankcase fumes into the intake manifold where they can be burned to eliminate harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The PCV valve controls the amount of crankcase flow volume depending on the engine's load. With large throttle openings (high engine loads), the more blow-by gases are produced, and the more the PCV system flows oil vapor in to the intake manifold. A small amount of that ignited mixture leaks past the piston rings and ends up in the crakcase. This leakage is often reffered to a "blow-by" or leakage past the pistons. Some of the oil mist and other products settle along the engine intake and over time form a "gunk". Our oil catch can collects the oil mist and condensed the fuel vapors while allowing "cleaner" gasses to pass back into the intake manifold.
Negative Effects of your Stock PCV System:
Many Corvette, Camaro, Firebird and GTO owners can testify to the amount of oil residue that can accumulate inside the intake manifold, throttle body, intake track and even the air filter during aggressive driving conditions.
There are various negative effects when excess oil vapor contaminates the intake system from the stock PCV system - such as:
Bottom line: Excessive amounts of oil vapor in the intake manifold is detrimental to your engine!
Solution: Install theElite Engineering PCV Oil Catch Can!
Elite Engineering's PCV Oil Catch Can has a unique 3-chamber design to effectively separate oil from the crankcase vapors, thereby eliminating all negative effects of excessive intake system oil contamination. Oil vapor from the crankcase enters the 1st - Inlet/Filtration chamber where it is slowed down and caught in the stainless steel mesh, it then moves onto the 2nd - Transition/Diffusion chamber. The Diffusion chamber has a very specific set of holes to remove the oil and only let clean air vapor pass. Lastly, the vapor passes into the 3rd - Exit Chamber before it exits the Catch Can.
You also have the option of choosing the number of Exit Ports your Catch Can will have. Most applications will only require (1) one 1/4" Female NPT Exit Port, but you can choose to have (2) two 1/4" Female NPT Exit Ports for Forced Induction set-ups.
Not all Catch Cans are created equally! Often imitated, never duplicated. Most Catch Cans on the market are just comprised of an empty container with 2 ports. While that simple design may trap a few oil droplets, our Catch Can is designed to condense the oil vapor and trap the oil inside the container.
Our test proven design incorporates a stainless steel mesh and screening mechanism that acts like a maze to collect and condense the oil vapor. Once the oil vapors condense into liquid droplets, it falls to the bottom of the can. In addition, the top assembly is specially designed to keep any liquid from climbing out the exit hole during aggressive driving conditions. Stored oil volume is approximately 11 ounces. You will be amazed by how much oil our Catch Can will catch! Don't settle for an inferior competitor's product. Insist on Elite Engineering's Catch Can!
The E2 PCV Oil Catch Can is constructed of the finest materials inside and out. High performance car owners insist on the best products that offer unsurpassed function as well as impressive visual enhancement. Our Catch Can does both! Our exclusive design incorporates optimum function and the finest materials, construction and finish for maximum dependability.
Machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, and then anodized in a variety of colors for a striking look. The internal condensing/filteration screen is stainless steel encased inside an aluminum alloy housing designed for low flow restriction. The housing can be disassembled for screen inspection, cleaning or replacement if needed. The inlet and outlet hose fittings are brass, and threaded into the body and sealed with Teflon tape. Supplied hoses are fuel and oil vapor compatible (SAE 30R7 rated). The bottom catch can reservoir screws onto the top of the unit, and is sealed with a built in O-ring. Inspection and cleaning is easy by simply removing the bottom of the unit without disturbing the mounting system or hoses.
In keeping with our high quality standards, all supplied mounting hardware and screws are stainless steel. The supplied custom machined mounting bracket is black anodized 6061-T6 aluminum, and is attached to your specific vehicle with the hardware supplied.
Each Catch Can kit includes everything you need to install the system. Basic mechanical skills and common hand tools are the only things required.

Very easy install, I bought the E2 dual port can for my 2010 Camaro 3.6L v6. Install was simple, just a bolt and trimming the PCV hose from the crank case. I hope to see access oil and debris in the can after a few thousand miles. Also happy to slow down carbon building up on the intake valves which is the point of a catch can. My only issue is you can really hear the air flow through the can. I've checked to see if the fittings and the can screwed are on correctly because it sounds like it is sucking air. Other than that looks great and hope it works great.

I installed this catch can on my 2016 Chevy 1500 5.3L. I opted for the upgraded black nylon braided hose for the reinforced hose as well as aesthetics. Install was quite simple, i opted to install mine with the bolt that holds up the windshield washer fluid as I wanted it in a more accessible location than the brake booster. So far I am very happy with my catch can, have not had any condensation issues (knock on wood) and i live up in MN where temperatures get decently cold in the winter months. Will definitely be installing again whenever i get a new vehicle.

Purchased the E2 catch can for my 2018 Silverado 5.3. Very well-made product. It was a fairly straightforward install- took me about 3 hours with limited mechanical/automotive experience and extra caution exercised on my new truck. After three days/120 miles, there is already some oil residue collecting in the can. Definitely a worthy upgrade if you plan on keeping and taking care of your GDI vehicle for a long time like I do. I exchanged emails with Steve several times both before and after the purchase, and he was extremely helpful and thorough in all of his responses. Five-star experience all around.

Product was easy to install and and looks great, now going to have to wait and see how much oil it traps after I get some mike on it.

Catches oil extremely well but the supplied hose is too weak. It was causing a decently loud sucking noise due to the sidewall of the hoses to collapsing. I replaced the hoses with transmission cooler lines and no more annoying noises.
