Elite Engineering's 2nd Generation Catch Can - E2


After receiving a lot of customer requests to design a Larger Catch Can, we are excited to offer the new E2 – Elite’s 2nd Generation Catch Can.


Modeled after our very popular and functional 3-stage, “original” Catch Can with a few more added benefits:

 Take a look at this Youtube video posted by one of our customers:


Do it once, and do it right!

Elite Engineering Catch Can: Often Imitated, but never Duplicated!


 Specifically designed for Forced Induction, Turbo or Supercharged engines

  • Elite's 3-Chamber Design WITH Larger 3rd Stage
  • Available with: 1 or 2 Exit Ports
  • 30% more volume than our Standard Catch Can
  • Can be Fully Disassembled for easy Cleaning or Inspection
  • Available in BLACK Anodize Color Only


Same 3-Chamber Design that made the Elite Catch Can so popular and functional, but with a larger volume




Purpose of your Stock PCV System:

The PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system is designed to regulate and remove fumes from the engine crankcase, and to alleviate crankcase pressure which could cause oil leaks or seal damage. The PCV system routes crankcase fumes into the intake manifold where they can be burned to eliminate harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The PCV valve controls the amount of crankcase flow volume depending on the engine's load.  With large throttle openings (high engine loads), the more blow-by gases are produced, and the more the PCV system flows oil vapor in to the intake manifold.  A small amount of that ignited mixture leaks past the piston rings and ends up in the crakcase.  This leakage is often reffered to a "blow-by" or leakage past the pistons.  Some of the oil mist and other products settle along the engine intake and over time form a "gunk".  Our oil catch can collects the oil mist and condensed the fuel vapors while allowing "cleaner" gasses to pass back into the intake manifold.


 Negative Effects of your Stock PCV System:

Many Corvette, Camaro, Firebird and GTO owners can testify to the amount of oil residue that can accumulate inside the intake manifold, throttle body, intake track and even the air filter during aggressive driving conditions.

  There are various negative effects when excess oil vapor contaminates the intake system from the stock PCV system - such as:


  • Throttle body and/or MAFS (Mass Air Flow Sensor) malfunction or failure.
  • Air filter, intercooler (if equipped) and intake ducting contamination if oil pools and run back out the intake system after engine shutdown
  • Reduced octane of the air/fuel mixture, which can cause detonation and the ECM (Engine Control Module) to retard timing, thereby reducing engine power.
  • Excessive carbon build-up on valves, piston crowns, combustion chambers and spark plugs. This also increases the chance of detonation and power loss.
  • Increased emissions & possible contamination of catalytic converters and oxygen sensors.


Bottom line: Excessive amounts of oil vapor in the intake manifold is detrimental to your engine!

Solution: Install theElite Engineering PCV Oil Catch Can!

Ultimate Function:

Elite Engineering's PCV Oil Catch Can has a unique 3-chamber design to effectively separate oil from the crankcase vapors, thereby eliminating all negative effects of excessive intake system oil contamination.  Oil vapor from the crankcase enters the 1st - Inlet/Filtration chamber where it is slowed down and caught in the stainless steel mesh, it then moves onto the 2nd - Transition/Diffusion chamber.  The Diffusion chamber has a very specific set of holes to remove the oil and only let clean air vapor pass.  Lastly, the vapor passes into the 3rd - Exit Chamber before it exits the Catch Can.

You also have the option of choosing the number of Exit Ports your Catch Can will have.  Most applications will only require (1) one 1/4" Female NPT Exit Port, but you can choose to have (2) two 1/4" Female NPT Exit Ports for Forced Induction set-ups.

  Not all Catch Cans are created equally!  Often imitated, never duplicated.  Most Catch Cans on the market are just comprised of an empty container with 2 ports.  While that simple design may trap a  few oil droplets, our Catch Can is designed to condense the oil vapor and trap the oil inside the container.

  Our test proven design incorporates a stainless steel mesh and screening mechanism that acts like a maze to collect and condense the oil vapor.  Once the oil vapors condense into liquid droplets, it falls to the bottom of the can.  In addition, the top assembly is specially designed to keep any liquid from climbing out the exit hole during aggressive driving conditions.  Stored oil volume is approximately 11 ounces.  You will be amazed by how much oil our Catch Can will catch!  Don't settle for an inferior competitor's product.  Insist on Elite Engineering's Catch Can!



Premium Construction:


The E2 PCV Oil Catch Can is constructed of the finest materials inside and out.  High performance car owners insist on the best products that offer unsurpassed function as well as impressive visual enhancement.  Our Catch Can does both!  Our exclusive design incorporates optimum function and the finest materials, construction and finish for maximum dependability.

Machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, and then anodized in a variety of colors for a striking look.  The internal condensing/filteration screen is stainless steel encased inside an aluminum alloy housing designed for low flow restriction.  The housing can be disassembled for screen inspection, cleaning or replacement if needed.  The inlet and outlet hose fittings are brass, and threaded into the body and sealed with Teflon tape.  Supplied hoses are fuel and oil vapor compatible (SAE 30R7 rated).  The bottom catch can reservoir screws onto the top of the unit, and is sealed with a built in O-ring.  Inspection and cleaning is easy by simply removing the bottom of the unit without disturbing the mounting system or hoses.

In keeping with our high quality standards, all supplied mounting hardware and screws are stainless steel.  The supplied custom machined mounting bracket is black anodized 6061-T6 aluminum, and is attached to your specific vehicle with the hardware supplied.

Each Catch Can kit includes everything you need to install the system.  Basic mechanical skills and common hand tools are the only things required.


Standard Kit Includes:

  • Catch Can assembly beautifully anodized in BLACK, complete with 3/8" BLACK AN Type Swivel Connectors
  • Custom machined mounting bracket to fit your specific vehicle and application
  • All Stainless steel mounting hardware.
  • 3/8" ID fuel and oil vapor compatible hose.
  • PCV adapter hardware.
  • Black zinc plated hose clamps.

    Quality product

    Posted by Zack on 25th Aug 2020

    You get what you pay for and the E2 catch can is no exception. The can, hoses, springs, etc. are all top notch and feel well constructed. Time will tell on how much blow by I catch, but from what I have read with others experiences I'm sure I will be pleased. The only negative is that the instructions could have been a little more detailed and up to date. I noticed differences between the hardware in the instructions vs. what I received, not a huge deal. Additionally, I had to go searching for the best place to install the check valve. Otherwise great

    Best catchcan I have seen

    Posted by Parker on 19th Jul 2020

    First off, I give this catch can 4 stars simply because there are no directions. Despite that, installation was a breeze! I just needed to figure out where it needed to be mounted. If you have a basic understanding of the PVC system, its easy to figure out. Second, the quality is second to none. The fittings included are excellent and the can itself is beautifully machined. If you're debating on whether to spend a little more to get a quality catch can for your GDI engine; stop. Do yourself a favor and order this one.

    Catch can and mounting bracket is great fit and finish. Kit came with allen bolt that does not work with the LS7. The bottom screw has no room for an allen key to fit, it should have came with a hex screw so that you can use a wrench. The only way you can tighten the bottom bolt is to cut an allen key which I will not do. Shipping is extremely fast.
