Question Catch Can Question

So i am ready to buy a BT Catch Can and need a little advice on all the options...

PVC or Braided lines?
Standard Bracket or "Z" Bracket?

I am trying to keep the cost as low as possible, but I don't want to sacrifice better performance or quality over 30 or 40 dollars.

Thanks for all the help guys!

I don't think there are any performance issues involved. The lines are low pressure so the braiding is simply a cosmetic add-on. The big performance boost is the catch can itself.

The Z-bracket is specific to the Rams (I believe). Getting it puts the can in the right location so all your other hoses fit (and leave it front and center to show off with the hood up!)

I gotta get one! Come on Christmas!!!!

So i'm thinking the PVC lines with the Z bracket should do it!

Either line is fine, but the Z Bracket is a must!!!! Trust me, I didn't order one at first and I was stuck with a paperweight until I ordered the Z-bracket.

I got the braided lines and the only problem was that the inside diameter of the braided lines was a little small. I had to stretch the end of the lines for about 24 hours before they would fit. Once I got them on I don't think they will ever come off

Thought I'd show ya some possibilities. The engraving is not expensive (They have a group of standard engraves that look great) and if you want an anodized finish you can get it in colors at an additional charge. The difference in the hose price is minor. I got mine at SpeedLogix.

I'm just trying to help you spend your money...

Have to agree with Pullya. I ordered the braided line's and they were a B***h to get on. Check out this thread:http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....350#post348350

Just go as cheap as possible. and upgrade lines later if you want. Simply cosmetic.
