I did it now! Team RXP 2020 dual catch can kit

Recommended Posts

I finally went balls deep and got the Team RXP fully serviceable, dual catch can with inline css. Hopefully receive it in a week or 2 then I'll be posting pictures and links to a you tube video I'm going to make while installing.

Man that's a lot of hardware. Take your time with the install and pay particular attention to component placement and routing the hoses so that it all looks nice and neat when you're done.

What are you planning on using for hose clamps? heat shrink clamps work great and look clean.

Almost done installing my 2020 dual catch can kit from Team RXP and I'm very excited to find out what this thing grabs. Here's a quick run down of the install.

 

I went alittle overboard on some things but I think it was worth it. Like many others I removed the intake to get to the PCV and the under side of the intake. I also did a chemical flush of the intake valves while I was at it.

I used a heat gun to soften the hose on the PCV and removed it. The fitting that went to the intake was also removed.

Then I connected the lines for the middle of the big can and the left side on the big can and reinstalled the intake.

Then removed the hose going from the rear of the valve cover to the inlet of the turbo in the rear of the engine that has the crankcase pressure sensor in it. I removed the fitting that goes in the inlet to put on a line to the small can later. I then swung the hose around and put the adapter in with a shrink clamp.

And ran a line with the stock fitting, up to the top of the small can.

The OEM fitting that I took out of the CPS, I installed to a length of hose, attached it to the turbo inlet hose and ran it to the other side of the bigger can. Then I cut the hose (sort of in the middle) installed a T fitting, re connected the 2 ends and ran a length of hose from the other end of the T to the fitting on the side of the small can.

Then I took the 2 lines coming from the shorter fittings on the big can and cut in the inline 1 way fittings.

I used the bolt on 1 side of the air box inlet to mount the bracket.

I churched up the lines today with labels and I was thinking about running both drains to a Y fitting then down in front of the radiator support and mount the valve there.

Literally a half a day project. James from RXP answered any questions I had. From the time I ordered it until it was manufactured and shipped was about 10 days. The kit came with everything I needed and I added the extra heat shrink clamps. I definitely recommend it. We'll see what it pulls out by next oil change.

None of the DropBox hosted images are showing - it would be great if you posted the images directly to the forum.

Did you share it to the public or are they still viewable only by you?

The problem is the URL is sending it relative to my dropbox location, when it needs to be relative to YOUR dropbox location.

 

If you created a folder with these files, you could share the folder and drop a single link into this thread.  Or create a link to each file you want to drop and insert into the desired post.

 

To share a file, highlight the desired file.  You should see a SHARE menu dropdown, pick Dropbox.  Then a window will open to allow you to email the link.  Ignore that, look to the bottom of that window for SHARE THE LINK INSTEAD.  Click on CREATE THE LINK.  Once created you will see a COPY THE LINK option.  Click to copy.  Then paste where you want it to be.

 

This is an example from my dropbox

Ok it's been about 4 months since I installed the catch cans, not 1 drop of oil or any moisture for that matter. No problems with the car running or check engine light or anything but just find it odd that there is NOTHING in there.

I have found on my Team RXP single can setup, that I barely get anything during the summer months. But when temps go 50 or below, it picks up a lot more. Assuming that it's mostly condensation & some gunk, but I still don't want that going into my intake.

I completely agree that anything but air getting in the intake is no no, but there still should be some sort of vapors getting into the can when the operating temperature is up..

My cheapo catch can is almost full of oil no moisture at 4600 miles.  Never been in winter since installed. Just installed one on my F150 and it is collecting some oil already, truck has 40,000 miles on it.

That is somewhat odd. My system (UPR 4 stage) is less complex than the RXP setup but it always collects a small amount of condensed oil. That applies to both of my cars. The inlet line is wet and exit line is dry.

Sketch up a schematic of your plumbing and send it to Team RXP for commentary. Something is obviously amiss. Personally I'd be reluctant to use such a complex system on my cars. It all seems good in theory but those check valves scare me. They are required on a 3 port can but if they ever fail they can cause problems.

The cans need to be mounted in the coolest possible location in the engine bay.  Fewer options than in an explorer sized vehicle, but the fenderwell (from where the airbox gets its feed) is the most ideal.

 

Where are yours located?

I'm not following the logic. If your trying to collect and condense oil vapour why is location important? As examples, my Mustang has a positive displacement supercharger and the engine compartment temperatures are extreme and yet the firewall mounted catch can has no issue collecting condensed oil. On my Lincoln its mounted very close to the motor and it also collects a normal amount of oil.

The warmer the better, that way your not collecting water vapour and turning the contents into an emulsive sludge.
