I also stuffed some copper mesh (same stuff the BATF tried to make illegal ) inside so there was something for the oil mist to condense on). Try to make sure that doesn't get sucked into the engine though, heh.

Already had the can, just $20 for hoses and the fittings for the ball drain valve. WORKS GREAT

Mine turned out decent. I recommend the disassembling of it to put anti seize on the bolts, especially the one that goes into the head. It's good cheap insurance.

Where does this oil go if one does not have a catch can?
I have a K&N CAI on my new to me 2010. Looks like I need to check and see if I have a catch can?

The oil goes into the intake manifold.

I cannot believe how much oil these things collect!

Question: (Yeah I've been gone for a while, but now I'm back in a RAM)

Those of you with the 392, where are you installing the catch can?
