I agree 100 percent. The members here tend to be a little more performance minded vs the just burn the cheapest crap gasoline possible and happy to do it, average driver/ owner. For me, turning the drain **** every 4 or 5 tanks of gas is not a big deal but "Joe or Jane average owner" would have issues with it.

Newbie to the game. My first car was a 72 challenger and now I own a 2016 RT Plus 5.7 8 spread automatic. Loving it.

I like the idea of the catch can but have a few questions:
1- How hard is it to install?
2- how hard is it to drain?
3 - Is there room to install on the RT Plus and where? I notice most thread contributors have the scat pack or hellcat

Answers to #1 & 2 are both not hard at all. You choose your mount location, either fender or engine mount, couple bolts to mount and connect two vacuum lines. To empty you either open a drain valve if the model you choose has one or unscrew the bottom cup. And I believe you should have no problems with putting one in your RT Plus. Check out Speedlogix, they're a vendor on here and I'm sure have something that will work for you.

I'm still on the fence of getting the oil catch can myself. I'm wondering if the vendors here also ship to Canada.
