I am trying to get a kit together, and I was wondering how you all felt about a single can kit and a dual can kit.

To be brief, it's obvious our engines need these things. Ideally, you'd get two. One to use for the valve cover vent line and another for the PCV line coming off the engine block.
I removed my intake the other day and there was oil film on the inside and the same goes for the MAP sensor!!! I also saw Max empty his can at the Atlanta tuning event and I was stricken with grief with the amount of crap that was in it.

I highly advocate at least one catch can as long term preventative maintenance for the engine. Use two if possible, it will do nothing but help.

With that being said, this can/kit would be top american made quality you all are used to from us and I'd try to keep the cost down as much as possible.
This is an early ball park figure but single can kit would be about $175-200. Expect double for a dual can kit.

I will have a few concept models posted in the coming weeks, but I wanted some feedback first. Thanks everyone!

i like the idea of a 3 port can, i have a 2 port mishimoto compact can getting ready to go on my car soon. but i do like supporting up and coming businesses, so if i like what i see ill probably ditch my mishimoto and pick up a 6th element can instead

one thing i would really like to see is a pressure/one way valve built in or included to stop the can from getting boosted from the intake manifold

I'd have to lay out the plumbing to see if you could do that. You'd have to split the outlet at one point or another. Currently, I am trying to work with a current catch can manufacturer to make it for me with my input.

I'd buy one if it came with step by step instructions I don't know much about modding and such if you couldn't tell by now

All of our parts come with full color install instructions with big pictures, so no worries there :)

Just FYI, cans are inbound to develop a custom bracket for placement. As well as -AN lines and fittings.

I am going with nice -AN fittings and lines upfront. If cost is too much, will step it down to push-lok fluid hose.

Awesome! I've been waiting for you guys to finish before purchase? Are there multiple colors? Or just one?

Catch cans only come in black. I have to design a custom mounting bracket for both the single and dual can setups. Those will be powdercoated our signature wrinkle black, but I think I could offer custom colors at a slightly larger price.
If there is an interest for different color fittings, I'll see what I can off. Right now those will be black as well.

I'll be posting pictures of the parts used later this week when all the prototype items arrive.

Looking to get a catch can..when will it goes on sale..
Right now, I estimate mid-July. I have all the prototype pieces arriving this week, and I will show everyone what everything looks like when they arrive. The only delay is a mounting bracket and that will take a couple weeks to get mass produced.

I just purchased the 6th. Cia for My new silver 15 forte. I love it. Fit , finish and service was perfect. I installed and was driving in 30 min. If they make anything for this fantastic car I'm in. Has anyone seen the new full exhaust system sold by importshark ? It's made by June bl.

You will see the same quality in everything we will make :)

Cans are in, just waiting for the lines. I'll post pics this weekend of everything and a mocked up bracket to mount the cans.

A kit with detailed instructions would be awesome. Definitely interested.
Detailed instructions with big pictures will be available for download from our site just like the rest of the products :)

I am also going to post a detailed document on why this is a necessary addition to the car to keep the motor clean and running in top condition.
