Default Added a Moroso Catch Can

Here's another catch can install. I decided on a Moroso unit. I use Moroso products on my muscle cars, everything they offer is nice quality.



One thing I didn't really like was the brass fittings these catch cans come with so I used XRP -AN fittings and pushloc hose.



This is something totally unnecessary, but when it comes to -AN fittings and pipe thread, I ALWAYS open up the pipe threads so the -AN fitting screws all the way in. This step is more for looks rather than performance.





You can see here the XRP forged 90's screw all the way in now as apposed to the brass fittings in the previous pic.





I also used an Earls billet hose separator to keep things tidy.





Many ways to skin a cat. LOL

Nice job. Thanks for the pics. I am curious if you know the size of the hose and the part number for the fittings? Thanks.

Thanks guys.

The size of the hose is 1/2" (-8AN) You can actually use the same hose that came with the kit.

For the fittings, use Fragola. Great quality fittings, made in the USA, & available from Summit. I use XRP because my local speed shop carries them in stock. (they are also more expensive)

you need 2 of these:

Looks great! I really like what you did with those new fittings. I have the same catch can and I did not like that the fittings didn't thread in all the way. But other then that it is working great! Had it on for almost 10k miles and still working great!!!
