Default DAP/BP Catch Can

I saw the merit of catch cans when looking at other posts, but wasn't convinced it was a mandatory mod for my truck. When I upgraded my throttle body to an 87mm a couple months back, I did notice the intake track was a bit "greasy." When I saw DAP/BP advertising their's for a great price, I figured I'd give it a try.

First, the can looks very similar to the BT cans many members here are running. It could be the same, but I'm not sure. Any way you look at it, the quality appears top-notch. I was a little surprised just how large the can is. When you see the pictures of what it's collected so far, I can see the reason for the size.

Second, if I told you the guys at DAP/BP are phenomenal to work with and the customer service is great, none of you would be surprised. Well, this purchase from them was no different. It's hard to shop elsewhere when you know you're getting a great product at a great price and these guys stand behind their work.

Third...on to the pictures.

Post install (looks like everyone else's):


Here's what it captured after 150 miles (241 km):


After 850 miles (1368 km):


Here are the things I'm not fond of:
The connections below the throttle body and the aft portion of the intake are thick enough that the hoses don't go on more than what you see here. So far, it doesn't seem to be a problem, but I would want to figure out a better way to push the hoses on further without damaging the plastic intake.



Overall, I love this thing and the intake is dry. If you don't have one, this should be your next purchase. Tell your significant other that it'll increase your MPGs by a couple (it won't, but they don't have to know that).

Looks very nice and thanks for the nice words! If you need anything else just let us know

This is not mandatory however I have seen a couple customer that were not able to get the hose onto the plastic all the way put a small hose clamp on it to insure it will stay there, you should have no issues though either way

Anyone else looking for a Billet Catch can let us know we would be more than happy to get one out to you, we have 5 satin's in stock in the US, and 3 Polished

Thanks

Yes thank you for the great feedback
But as Jeremiah said and took the words outta my mouth. You can use hose clamps or a cheap and easy fix would a black zip tie, snip the ends hanging off and away you go.
It won't go anywhere....

Just as hard as its to put on, it's a struggle to remove as well, so you'll be fine

Yeah, I can see that. I may get some clamps just for peace of mind. Either way, they're not coming off! Great product, guys.

if u still have your stock elbows that were originally on those fittings, then just cut the lines a little shorter, run to the hardware store and get some brass double male end barbed fittings. that should clean it up then no worries bout them coming off

yea no problem. that's what I did for the backside connection on the engine when I installed my BT can. the BT can came with one for the front connection but not one for the back, and after trying to muscle it on I figured hey why not get another fitting and use the factory elbow. sure makes it look more factory, in my opinion as much as these cans cost one should get two of those fittings included. there like a couple dollars at the hardware store but what do I know.
