Well, parked in the garage and noticed that the car had what sounded like 'compressed' air noise pouring out of the engine bay...Odd... Popped the hood and looked and looked then noticed that the 'new' catch can I just put in 3 weeks or so ago, is having issues. The intake on the left side of the can (the little 90 degree plug) has cracked in the bend and it looks like the other side will crack as well.
It's not like there is pressure on them pushing them outside of the bend.

I can't really figure out why it would be this weak. :confused: Any ideas? I guess, I can send them back to BT. Maybe they will send me some new ones?

thats odd!! the brass 90's must have been defects. call heidie or scott on monday and they will hook you up. untill then bypass the catch can if you have to drive it.

I always keep my stock PCV hose sealed in a zip-loc bag in the trunk in case something goes wrong with the catch-can hose, or have other problems like you are having. Don't want to be far from home and have the catch-can hardware/hoses go bad.

Steve they are not using the brass 90's anymore, they are using plastic 90's.
Definitely call BT they will get it sorted out.

I'm using the new black plastic fittings too and haven't noticed anything weird about them ... will have to check them out closely soon ...

Good to know. I just put a BT can on mine and yes, they are plastic. Can we get brass ones somewhere? I wonder why they went plastic.

To the OP Shoot me an email with your info and I will send a replacement out to you.
As far as the fitting being plastic they are not,they are composite.Same thing you might think but it isnt.These fittings will sustain a continuous 300* where plastic will not.

We changed to the black fittings after many complaints that they were ugly lol so we switched.

Not sure how they cracked as I had these on my car 6 months before we ever sold them with Zero issues.But with all out products we offer a 1yr warantee..

BTW If you have an issue with our products might I suggest putting it under our section or shooting us an email/PM.I assure you the issue will get resolved much faster that way..Thanks
