Thread: Catch Can
03-24-2008, 03:37 PM #1
Guys, My GH box is on the way to be modified for the Black Magic Headers upgrade.
My question is, where can i mount my catch can now since i will not have the stock exhaust manifold to mount to, and i would assume that the new header will not have any potential to mount too.
I thought maybe some of you guys have mounted your catch can in a custom spot on ski and would like to share thoughts or pics. Just planning ahead and wanted some advice.

I mounted mine on the manifold but I have seen a lot of guys (including Jerry at one point) mount it near the front of the seat on the right side. So if you took out the stock air intake duct in the front of the seat, you would see it through there on the right. I think they just custom mounted it. You could use some big zipties even to mount that thing anywhere it will reach.
I personally would make a bracket and put it in that area. Sorry I don't have any pics. Search for jerry's old thread called something like; "some old pictures" or something where he had pics of the original green hulk machine and in one of the pics you can see what i mean

My question is, if you reuse the bracket and mount it in the same place (should work), what is the ambient heat gonna be like since the front half of the new headers are "dry"...?

I have just fitted a custom catch can on my rxp, Had it made at work, Perks!!! I have used a stainless Tbolt clamp (had 1 left over from my ic install) to hold it to the revese cable Put some heat proof foam on the can to stop any damage to the cable. It hasent affected the action of the cable atal and it is very close tho the position where the riva 1 is fitted. I kno this is not the most profesional solution but it if function over form and still looks smart any how. It sort of hides the cable so you dont rele know what it is attached to. I am yet to run with the can as its still toooo frekin cold in not so sunny england atm. ROLL ON SUMMER!!!!!!

Heres where I put mine, if I did it again I would not put it in the same position. After a while of riding all the excess fumes will eventually get to you-this reminds me of something else I need to address.
