Not picking a winner here, or putting down Stage6, Moroso, or anyone else. Let me speak to BT for a minute here. First of all, we all know the quality of BT's stuff, and their efforts to supply beautiful, functional, "trick" items, and attendant accessories. Function, appearance, and ease of install are all important.

In post # 29, BT nails it. We early guys went with the Elite cause there wasn't much else out there. Mine functions, basically does the job and collects oil. But yeah, do have to dump it, wipe it out, and get rid of the oil as opposed to one with a breather. But it was a pain to mount. My can was designed for a Corvette mount I believe.

Those who bought the Elite, pre-BT etc., had to get the right bolt, space the bracket out for clearance etc. A pain to install. Some of you may remember "Sarge" coming up with a couple of bracket designs to make it easier. If BT was available then I would have gone with them. As usual, when they stepped in, options, mounts, lines etc all improved.

Today, thanks to BT, Stage6 etc, we have options. Like everything else about the WK1, in the early days we had to wait for guys like them to invest time in design, production etc., before bringing stuff to market for us. Thanks to them all.

Here's a few pics of one I use. This was after months and months of fartin around from design to manufacturer. And, I still had to drill hole for mounting. Plus in addition to the can, bracket was another bunch of bucks.

Props to all our vendors here from catch cans, to CAI's, exhausts, turbos etc. Let's support them. I'm sure the WK2 guys are experiencing the same kind of growth patterns in many areas.

Well put Ted. I had the elite can on my 06, the bt on my 08 and I had stage6 do theirs when I got the converter installed. All worked as advertised but for my needs now the stage6 works best. The bt looked great, installed easy, and helped keep a good portion of the oil out of the intake. I simply went with stage6 can because I'm trying to eek every last ounce of performance out of my rig and the less oil in the intake means less chance for knock allowing for every last hp I need for my goal.

Look back to Hawkman's post - that's the Stage 6 catch can.
Whether or not the Mopar one makes it out, you could still order from BT and have them do a Mopar "M" on the top. They'll do whatever you want, just has ta ax!

I actually am using a pair of these, I did "modify" them to accept AN lines, and made a custom bracket for my application.


what ever you choose will be better than nothing at all.

So we can modify the BT catch can by adding a breather filter. What happens to the opening on the manifold? Do we just plug it closed or put a breather filter on it as well?


I'm gettting frustrated with modding

Best place is Billet Technologies
Best price in one on sale, a used one from a member, or pay for a new one.


2015 Billet Silver
2012 300SRT
2009 Jeep SRT
2006 Charger SRT
Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Yes, I'm on the 3 year plan...so 2018 better be a hellcat Jeep.
