A CATCH CAN for my 2013 RT Classic? HELP!

So I met my 2013 RT classic automatic in Dallas over this past weekend and now am waiting for it to come home to me in LA. Buying some mods, just bought Eibach Pro-Kit Lowering Springs Eibach Springs Pro Kit for it, and now am looking at catch cans. Everything I have seen so far are outdated posts so I am wondering if a 2013 needs a catch can and if yes where to buy it from? Places I have found online don't look exactly current. They only go up to the 2010 Challengers. Any ideas? Also there are bracket, hose and fitting options. No clue which to choose as I am new to the Challenger and owning a NEW car. Will appreciate your help. Thank you.

It's not a different engine so the year doesn't matter.
All engines will benefit from a catch-can IMO.. watch out though, it's a highly debated topic around here.. lol

I empty mine every couple thousand miles.. it's actually pretty full when I do..

I recommend billet technology.. their cans come with everything you need!

P.S. Idk if the 2013's have the intake silencer, but if they do, you'll need a CAI to mount it on the block..

Hope I could help.

Hi, congrats on the new R/T classic, you might want to check out

Speedlogix ,

Billet technology

As far as mounting you will need the fender mount if it still has the stock air box, if you plan on getting a CAI

You can engine mount it,

And IMO if you can afford the better lines and want to add color do it, I just went with the plain Jane and she has worked just fine for me.

A simple gander and some of the others areas would garner some info

Not necessary to read through the whole thread, but plenty of 2013 owners have catch cans in this thread

There are nay-sayers and those who think it's voodoo or a hex or curse or some other nonsense, but there are plenty of us who have bought catch-cans regardless of model year (I haven't received my '13 R/T but I have a catch can sitting at home waiting for my delivery)...

What do you mean about the whole Cold Air Intake thing and to mount on the block? I can't put in the catch can until I have a different CAI?

Here is a picture of the engine bay with the stock intake (at least on mine).. you see the black piece on the left.. that blocks where you mount the catch can to the block..


As seen here..


(I know the bottom is a 6.1.. but they mount in the same place)

The stock air cleaner (on the 2012's, so I'm guessing is also on the 2013's) has a silencer (plastic piece that is part of the air cleaner assembly) where most people mount the catch can. Now, something has to move, either the silencer or find another spot for the catch can. Some people mount the catch can to the fender which will allow you to keep your engine cover.

I opted to mount my catch can to the passenger side cylinder hear using a "Z" bracket. But doing so, means you can't reinstall your engine cover. See pics.

So, if you want to mount it where the silencer is located, you will need to purchase an aftermarket air cleaner (CAI). This will free up the space required to mount the catch can.

If you do a little google search for catch can install, you should see some photos of the catch can mounted in a few different locations. Then you have to decide which route you want to go!

Decisions! Decisions!

Good luck

I hope this helps

Thanks so much for taking the time Randy. ALL OF YOU REALLY. Just placed my order with Billet Tech. Got the fender mount and the polished look with the black powder coated fittings and just the PVC hose all for 177.50 including shipping.

A little late to the game here, but I believe you can order a Charger intake tube to replace the tube with the silencer for 40 or so bucks. I spoke with a guy at a meet who did it.

Edit: sounds like it's $80.

A challenger appears!

You don't need to buy a CAI. Simply buy an air inlet tube for a 2011+ Charger. It is exactly the same as the Challenger except without the air silencer. Simply swap out parts and it comes with the IAT sensor too. About $80 retail as I recall. The stock air intake system on Challengers is excellent on 2011 up so a CAI would be a waste of money and you would not have to run all that hose to the fender and back. P/N 4861940AC.
