Any other good catch can alternatives? These look great but just wondering...

Husky 3/8 in. NPT Air Line Filter-24313HOM - The Home Depot

Seems like a lot of people actually use those. No personal experience....

Look at what ford is using for catch can! - Camaro5 Chevy Camaro Forum / Camaro ZL1, SS and V6 Forums - Camaro5.com

I had this on my Corvette:
Oil Catch Cans | Online Auto Parts Store | Aftermarket Auto Parts Distributors - Elite Engineering

This on my Hellcat:
https://www.custombilletstore.net/He...an_p/20707.htm

Both are super high quality...but this Saikou Michi you guys use look nice and they are lower cost too... still over 250 bucks for two...
Gotta be a high quality alternative for two at under 200? Not into the home depot version either did that with my Dodge SRT4 ...

Default Here is my install - test fitting everything

I have some clamps on order - but this is my initial test fit. I think it turned out great.

The guys at Saikou Michi are AMAZING to work with. I felt like I was their only customer. Quick friendly reply's to emails and questions I had, and so very helpful.

They custom painted them for me to try to match my theme too. This color is "true blue". Its a tad lighter than my CAI, but close enough for me to be happy with it.

Also check out Radium AOS. Pretty small size too and great quality product.

What are the two lines that go into the intake arms? I always thought those where what we would hook to the catch cans?

why does every car manufacturer do this when it is not good for your engine?

Easier and safer, you would be amazed by people ignoring regular oil changes let alone having to drain can of oil that can fill up and cause problems.

There could be other factors like complying with laws. For example, the EGR system used in some cars is not the greatest thing for engines but they had to do it for emissions.

Do you have a link or picture of the bracket you purchased at Home Depot where you connected to the catch can to the car next to the filters?

The bracket you want is dependent on the setup you're running. I just used some thin L-brackets I had lying around, cut to size, and drilled mounting holes on both ends.
