Still waiting on my order, I guess if you order a polished one it take much longer, I think it's been on order now for about a month, and no word yet

The web sites that sell them can tell you if they have one for your 06, you didn't mention what engine you have... They start around $100.00 depending on what finish and hoses you want... Hope that helps

The Megan Racing oil catch tank will hold this oily byproduct by removing it from suspension within the air intake stream. By doing so, horsepower is then increased by eliminating the engine’s current requirement to try and burn this relatively non-combustible oil. Engine life is extended due to this oil not having the ability to gum up the valve train and other moving parts and sensors.

I bought the BT model about the time that they changed names[IMG]

google search brings up this

Can someone share their opinion on which is the best catch can to use? Are the other brands besides Billet as equally efficient or do the other brands lack quality?

So from the installation write up and pictures it looks like the Z Bracket is being used. The BT website says you have to use the fender mounting bracket with the factory intake. If the Z bracket works though, this seems like the way to go. Anyone know about this? I need to get this mod

Not sure what they're referring too. On the RAM with the factory intake not sure how it would be mounted on the fender. I'm assuming the engine bay on your 2012 is the same as the 2010. IMO just go with the Z-bracket.
