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)

Great oil catch can, so far no oil in the intake stream

Great fit and finish haven’t seen any runtime yet car sill being built

I really love the quality of the material and feels very sturdy. Of course I like that it’s made in the USA as well. The only disappointment was that I received to elbow or curved hose fittings. With the outlet fitting being curved it meant pointing it towards the intake was impossible to have it tighter all the way or else it was facing in an odd direction. Most pictures had a straight fitting which makes way more sense. Also the lack of a print out or instructions would have been nice. Most car accessories have physical instructions or at least a picture of what the finished product after instillation so I was surprised that this had none. All in all it’s a great catch can and much more affordable than the mighty mouse cans without lacking in quality

this is a very well made Catch can , fits nicely in the engine bay. In my opinion probably one of the best cans for the money!

I'm installing my second Elite catch can on another LS car I own -- C6 Z06. The fit, finish and quality is excellent. The engineering that went into the upper metal mesh design is better than others I've seen out there. On my other LS car there's no detectable oil in the intake manifold because of this catch can. A great product complete with everything you need to install it.

I got this catch can for my 2010 Camaro SS LS3 and it fit perfectly and looks great! Material is very durable and the hose and fittings I chose we’re very nice. The catch can is working great and I’m very pleased with my purchase.

Just installed the can on my 2010 GMC Yukon with the L94 6.2L engine. Very easy with a engine model correct bracket. Great instructions too. Took about 30 minutes.

Chose the natural finish and hated to hide it in the engine bay.
Super easy installation on 2004 Z06. Extremely well made product.

There's quality built into the catch can. Installation was quick and easy (we like easy). Shipping was fast.
