Both look very nice, so it's up to you. In my opinion though it's over $100 for a can... You may want to check out some others, they make them for go karts, usually plastic but some are pretty nice and usually much cheaper (like under $50). Just watch for the sizing/dimensions and inlet/outlet sizes.

I personally think that husky filter looks good(stickers removed) and it is very practical as far as having a drain and it unscrews as well. For $25 or so not bad....

I just realized on 3g's site that they have a scratch and dent sale on that big bully catch can. $90 shipped and all it is was a shipping accident that left them with some scratch or dent in them. Will someone take a pic of their catch overhead so i can see if you can even see the catch can very much

That's getting down to a more reasonable price...

If you're ever around a home depot (maybe lowes too) check the campbell hausfeld water fuel seperators. You can do the whole mod for under 20 bucks if your interested.

I know they can handle the pressure, but I don't know about the heat, I have seen those things crack before and it not pretty when they do. I wouldnt want to think about what would happen if one of those burst while hot oil is in it. just my 2 cents. I will look around though before doing anything.

Well, none of them "need" it. It is just something extra some people like to add, it helps keep the inside of the intake a little bit cleaner, and helps for those that are racing/tuning to get a little more power and keep from detonating. Manufacturers make them the way they are for emissions reasons, but also to keep it from being another maintenance item. Most people who don't care about performance and such would be upset that they have to empty this can every so many miles, and would probably not do it....The factory's setup is good for the normal driver, but if you want to tune/race it would benefit you to add a catch can. Even if you don't use a catch can, you should change out your pcv valve every once in a while (every 50k miles or so). They are cheap and a properly operating one will help keep you from building up too much pressure inside the engine (this can hurt performance and also blow out seals causing oil leaks).

Its more an issue of "wanting" one not "needing" one.

The thing about catch cans are is you can mount them wherever. Get them away from your exhuast and your good to go. Spray paint the husky one (mask of a small viewing line before) and you have a custom color matched CC.


I still think that buying them is too much $$, no matter how pretty they are

A catch can does not give you any more power. It helps prevent vented oil from your pcv valve from building up in your throttle body and cylinders. Your engine combustion chamber can only burn away so much oil and the excess builds up causing poor performance. A catch can will help your tunes last longer by trapping most of the oil. Just as a grease trap helps keep your sewer pipes in a resturaunt cleaner. And it does work and it does benifit performance by helping your tunes stay fresh and last longer but it does not give you any more HP. edit: A catch can is a wise investment for those who race their trucks. Those of you who think otherwise evidently do not have any experience with crankcase ventilation (nothing wrong with that, lol). And btw, glass water fuel seperators have been used since the ice age (lol) with no breaking problems caused from heat, lol!.
