Default Catch Can Install for Pentastar 3.6L V6

When I removed my engine cover, I found a small puddle of oil at the Throttle Body, oil in the engine cover and in the PCV line. I had only 2000 miles on the truck and none of them were hard driven miles. (no WOT)

I ordered and installed a Billet Technology Catch Can on my 2013 Pentastar 3.6L V6 Engine. I found very little information on installing a Catch Can for the Pentastar Engine.

No one makes a Catch Can Kit for a Ram truck with the Pentastar V6 engine, so I went and ordered a Catch Can Kit from BT. Part # (Billet Technology Signature Series Catch Can 2011 and up Jeep 5.7L, Jeep 6.4L and Durango 5.7L)

The kit comes with 1 Catch Can and mounting bracket, 2 hoses 1/2", 1 double male brass hose connector 1/2" with barbed ends, and 2 screws.

I had to purchase (1) 1/2" brass 90` fitting and (2) 1/2" brass male hose connectors with barbed ends. These 3 parts make up a 90` hose fitting and were purchased at Home Depot.

I mounted the Catch Can on the side of the TIPM wiring box using one existing hole and drilling one additional hole. I used 5/16" hardware.

I removed the PCV hose from the engine cover and cut off 6". Next I inserted the supplied 1/2" double male barbed connector into the outlet end of the PCV hose (one you just cut) coming from the back of the engine. Next attach the supplied 1/2" hose to the connector and run it to the inlet side of the Catch Can.

Next assemble the 3 brass parts to make up the 90` fitting and take the other end of the cut hose (cut down so the brass barbed end just fits) and insert into the barbed fitting. Connect the supplied hose to the 90` fitting and to the outlet side of the Catch Can. Connect the other end to the inlet on the engine cover.

I took 17 pictures and I have them in order of progression with captions. See the pictures here: http://s1331.photobucket.com/user/gc...?sort=6&page=1

Total cost was about $150

Any questions just ask.
