Elite Engineering Catch Can: Often Imitated, but never Duplicated!
The #1 choice for Automotive Tuners and featured in the Sept. 2009 issue of Corvette Fever magazine
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.
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 8 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 video below shows the amount of oil caught by Elite Engineering's oil catch can on a 2010 Camaro SS after 4000 miles of driving (6400 kms).
The Elite Engineering 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.
The 2.6" diameter by 6.0" long body is 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.
Now offered in Chrome!, These are beautiful (shown with optional chrome fittings)

I installed the catch can on my 2000 c5 corvette ls1 and the product and installation was exceptional , just watch the videos and take your time . the bend coming out of the pcv valve was a little sharp so i made a u bend out of 3/8s copper tubing and used hose separators to keep things neat and looking professional . super nice product !! i also installed the clean air cap and adaptor .

I contacted Elite Engineering asking for help in picking a bracket for a 2004 Honda Odyssey because the J35 dumps high amounts of oil back into the PCV by design. They recommended me the ZR1 system, and it worked PERFECTLY for the space and clearance constraints I had in order to work this in.
Overall I'm really happy that they were both professional and eager to help in getting me setup. I will come back for more! The unit is VERY well constructed, and I wouldn't be surprised if it would survive getting shoved through the firewall (in the case of an unfortunate accident).

I have an LS platform in a 69 camaro. I used a set of pro-form valve covers. They don't have the two ports on the passenger side. I modified the cover to accept the stock LS filler neck. I was sucking a lot of oil in the intake and it affected air flow for tuning. This kit with the fresh air cap fixed all of that. It is already collecting oil in a short time. Simply amazing.

Bought for a 2015 impala 3.6 lfx. So had to buy Camaro v6 lfx catch can. Came with everything included to install. I mounted my bracket on the drivers side radiator mount. I followed a guide on the impala forums. After about 1500 km i have caught atleast 5 tablespoons worth of contaminants. I am a believer. I always use 91 octane fuel/penzoil ultra platinum 5w-30. Car has Overkill ASI, Overkill Tranny and Engine Tune, 3rd Cat Delete with straight pipes after.
