Arrow How to install a Billet Technology catch can on a 5.7L HEMI & retain the engine cover

Purchase the following:

Billet Technology 5.7/6.1 catch can
10mm 1.5x20mm hex head bolt [Home Depot/Lowes]
10mm split ring lock washer [Home Depot/Lowes]
5" Corner Brace/Angle bracket [Home Depot/Lowes]
5/8" heater hose fitting (HELP! part# 56152) [Pep Boys]

Also pictured is a rubber washer but I decided not to use it.




Then you'll have to cut the bracket to the proper size. I used a 13/32" drill bit to drill a new hole roughly 3 7/8" away from the bend. On the other end of the bracket drill a 1/2" hole roughly 2 1/4" away from the bend. I rounded the ends then painted it for a more finished look.

edit: not all of these corner braces are the same so you may have to adjust where you drill the holes to avoid overlapping one of the existing holes.



Remove the 18mm strut bar nut furthest on the passenger side, install the bracket you made (you'll probably have to put it under a hose, when you're installing it you'll see what I mean), then reinstall the nut and torque it down.

Next, with the lock washer on the bolt, feed it through the hole you made at the top of the bracket, and bolt the catch can onto the rear of the bracket. Then attach a hose to each of the barbs on the catch can.


I wont bother explaining how to route the hoses as you can see that from the pictures. I also forgot to measure the hose lengths but that part isn't hard to figure out. Route them how you see and then cut where they need to be cut. On the hose closest to the engine, connect it to the PCV valve. Getting this hose on was really tough so lube it with a little oil. On the other hose, "screw on" the hose fitting.


On the other end of the fitting, install the long end of the 90 rubber hose that was originally on the PCV-to-intake manifold connection.


Then attach it to the intake manifold. Secure all connections with zip-ties or hose clamps.


Reinstall your engine cover and you're done!




I hope the lengths of the hoses doesn't reduce the efficacy of the PCV system. If anyone thinks it'll be a problem, please let me know as I don't want to blow any seals or whatever.

Re: How to install a Billet Technology catch can on a 5.7L HEMI & retain the engine c

I've been looking at catch cans for my 4.7 and I notice some have breather filters and some don't. What are the best to get?

Re: How to install a Billet Technology catch can on a 5.7L HEMI & retain the engine c

Stone... I don't believe us 4.7L guys/gals really need a catch can. My throttle body and intake was not bad at all...had some oil on the insides but that was all residue build up... nothing like what you get on the 5.7L. Mine had 64k on it... so if that's all I got after 64K then Im gonna bet we don't have the oil problems like the 5.7L.

Jdubya,

What is the purpose of these catch cans? Are they more for looks or do they really serve a purpose as stated by maxst2. Is there something I should be checking or maintaining on my 57?

They're definitely functional. The catch can catches the oil blow-by from the PCV system. You don't "need" one but it does catch a couple tablespoons of oil each oil change. I got it for preventive measures; I want to keep my intake manifold and throttle body as gunk free as I can. Doing so can only help in the long run.
