Which ever one you deiced, just order early.
Unless you speak with someone on the phone and they have what you're looking for in stock, it will take a while to get. Even though BT may state, on thier site, they have them in stock it will take at least 3 weeks to get for some reason. If you want a custom color and engraving, plan for an even longer wait. Simply order now, it may be in before you get your car..... then again maybe not.
Also note that you should check the can every oil change and let the car cool down before trying to get the bottom off (if you go BT).
Wait - you are saying they weren't the right length and you cut them down? How did you cut them?
We measured each line AFTER installing them on a car here. Maybe all cars are a little different...then you have engine covers that are different. BUT Each length of hose that we cut is based on an install we did here at our shop. Not sure how your lines were routed, but we cut them to spec based on an install we did
i had to cut the lines i rec'd for my Jeep. they were both the same exact length and needed about 3" cut
I just ordered a Yellow Jacket etched catch can from Speedlogix with braided lines, chrome fittings and a Z bracket. I love the look and the braided lines are the way to go IMO. Also, the Z bracket makes installation a snap and provides easy access to the catch can which is a must have. I did have to trim the longer hose an inch or two to fit the way I wanted it without too much "curve" when the hose was attached. I attached it and cut it a little at a time until I was satisfied. Great purchase! My Speedlogix catch can was in stock so there was no wait for me.
It will pull out more oil vapor than either of the cheap ones. It's cut well, although it could use a final tumble before it goes to anodizing the finish is pretty good. It comes with the mounting bracket and is a very clean and solid design. It's actually engineered and not just a knock off can.

LMao oh really? I asked how much the damn can was hours ago. But if it takes 5 weeks to get one I might as well make one out of a PBR can or order one from Jegs.
While I'm not sure who you PM'd (it wasn't me, I know that), but you have to consider the fact that we do sponsor literally a dozen Mopar forums and if it was hours ago and during business operating hours, you could have called us with questions. Lisa posted in our section just now that she was out of the office today and catching up on her PMs, so if you PM'd 'Speedlogix', she'll see it and make sure you're responded to.
For reference, BT makes our catch cans. The only difference is ours have SX on the top, theirs have BT. In fact, a lot of customers will be referred to us by BT because we make it a point to stock enough product to meet our customers demands. Again, it never hurts to call us toll free Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm EST. 95% probability you'll get me personally and I love talking to the forum members.
As for the braided lines, OmahaRumble, I'm sorry you had an issue with yours. We've got thousands of customers running them with no problems. Just as with any product, occasionally there might be a defect out there. We've had a handful of customers (and I mean that literally) experience the same issue. We replaced their lines, no questions asked.
*edit* RTKid - when you said you asked hours ago, were you referring to your post on page 1 on this thread? I was under the impression you messaged one of the SX crew directly and didn't get a response. Just to be sure, I'm sending you a PM now
Knownman....agreed. Go to shophemi.com and read about their design. Had mine on the car for about 50 miles worth of driving and decided to check the can and found about half a table spoon. These cans were designed around our engines and their fitment and quality are first class.
i drove my RT about 100 miles from an event here in Houston to my house.
immediately upon pulling into my driveway, i popped the hood and drained the can.
all i did was go into the pantry to get a pink plastic cup, then i walked to my car, slipped it under the drain valve, pulled the lever, drained the oil, closed the lever and dumped the oil.
easy as cake.
on Thursday i drained the BT can - sweet baby God, first i had to wait over 2 hours for the can to cool down. then, i was having a hard time unscrewing it (maybe because the heat causes the threads to tighten or something).
then you have to sit there and attempt to unscrew the can while it's still hot. keep unscrewing and unscrewing while keeping your left hand under the can, because when you're at the very last thread, the can is going to drop out from under itself if you don't have your hand under it.
finally got it off, dumped the oil, and had to go through the process again to tighten a hot can onto itself.
they both freaking work, but the Moroso with the drain valve is the easiest maintenance you can do.
mine didn't come with the rubber piece for the drain spout - i just wipe the drain with a napkin. it doesn't drip oil anywhere.
