Got a slightly used catch can from another member, does anyone have a how to thread to get this thing installed. It didn't come with any special brackets, I believe it mounts to the front on a bolt. I have the regular black rubber hoses, but plan to upgrade later. I really want. Get this thing installed soon, thanks for assistance that can be provided.
There are like 3 different brackets that connect in different spots, the basic one screws onto the bolt that sticks out in the front left of your 5.7 near your radiator hose. You can order any of the brackets from billet technology, the basic bracket allows enough room to also be able to use your engine cover. The instructions say to rotate your radiator hose in order to be able to have easy acces to empty your can, i didn't and have no problem removing mine. Very basic install, hardest part is pushing the new hoses to a snug fit. Good luck!
Installation is really easy. Should only take about 15 minutes to knock it out. Here are the different ways to mount it and different instructions for each set-up. I'll try to post a picture of where mine is mounted and no removal of the air filter is necessary if you choose that method. Like MoparMuscle said, all of these brackets can be purchased from Billet Technology and I agree that the hardest part is getting the new hoses on snug!! Good luck!
the nozzle is about 1.5 inches long so try grabbing the pcv hose like 2 inches from where it comes out from the engine as opposed to grabbing it at the end of the hose because you may be squezzing the hose onto the nozzle, making it harder than it needs to be.
I had to use a small flat head screwdriver to remove mine; the hoses were stuck pretty good and I couldnt muscle them off for fear of tearing the hose. I just wedged the flat head under the end of hose and pryed a little while pulling. Came off without any problems.
+1 on the mounting location. There is a long stud that sticks out from a bracket that is just to the lower left of the throttle body and near the thermostat housing (mine had a bracket on the stud that the engine cover connected to). I had to remove the engine cover bracket off the stud in order to have enough room to thread the lock nut and catch can on. Spin the lock nut on a few times, unplug the IAT harness (it gets in the way during install), spin the catch can on the stud 4 or 5 times, and snug the lock nut down. Then run your hoses, should take all of 10 minutes or so.... no sweat.
