Which catch can to keep engine cover?

After reading about the benefits of the catch can, I would like to order one. However, I looked at the BT catch can at shophemi, and it says it cannot be used in conjunction with the engine cover.

Can someone please tell me which catch can to buy that will allow me to mount it somewhere and retain my engine cover?

You can not use the z bracket with the engine cover, If you do not use the facotry air box you can use the standard bracket. Or if you have the engine cover and the factory CAI box then you need the optional fender mount. Hope this helps

How is this relevant to the OPs question?

Since no engine type was mentioned, it's an open ended question; I merely provided one of many possibilities.
The OP did not state that he wanted to stay solely with the BT CC, so I offered an alternative for consideration.

The parenthetical statement was just offering my opinion of it's potential effectiveness.

You just need to get the "FENDER MOUNT BRACKET" available through Billet Tech for $25. That's what I have.

Moroso from SpeedLogix uses a stainless bracket and mounts with the cover on - need to change air intake tube to remove the silencer tho - I have one and like the drain valve for easy emptying.

I have the BT catch can with the standard mount and its the hoses that get in the way of the engine cover. I don't use the engine cover... I might get the half covers to protect the coil packs.
(I have the clean air duct too)

2011 Challenger RT Classic, 6 Spd. Black Clearcoat, STP, Sound Group II, 730N. Window tint, Skip shift eliminator, '11 Clean air duct, BT catch can, LED fog lights, Blastin Bobs glass pack reso delete.
