BT Catch Can on a 2013

Has anyone out there installed a Billet Technologies Catch Can on their 2013 SRT8? The coil over covers are extended on mine and there is no room to install the can in its normal location.

Any info would be greatly appreciated..

At some point they changed the cover for aesthetics to cover the wire bundle. With that change the BT supplied kit doesn't work. It needs more spacers and a longer bolt.

Talked to Scott @ BT. They have not had a 2013 in the shop yet. Guess I will have to wait till they figure something out. Absolutely no room there on the 2013. I will upload a picture.

Mine looks like that, I just used the spacers BT sent with the can and added a bunch of washers with a longer bolt. That was the best solution I could come up with

Damn, really! I should have mine in a couple days and I have a 2013, so I'm going to have the same problem. That sucks. I want this to fit perfect. I'll have to figure something out.

You can find similar spaces at the hardware store that come with the BT kit. Else, buy a length of pipe and cut it to the size needed for a "longer washer".

So, trying to install and there's not really anyway of making the look good or functional without a whole new arm design. Even with a longer bolt and spacer, there's no room underneath as its hitting a cooling hose, for a person to be able to drain the catch can. I think we need a new arm designed up. I'll try to draw one up soon.

Contact BT and voice the concern for a revised arm. They have a different arm for the 5.7L which would work on the SRT8 I would think.
