FS: Tracy Lewis Signature Catch Can Kit (Dual Valve, Check Valve) Rubber Hoses 9 months old was on a truck 1 month. Like New.By dvzzz
Price is $190 + shipping. The Tracy Lewis Signature Catch Can Kit is a true premium oil separating PCV crankcase evacuation and separation system. (Tracy is the man behind the original RX cans). This is his top dual-valve version that I paid $340 for it 9 months ago but had on the truck for less than 1 month. It includes the extra mounting ring and bracket to avoid placing in it on the brake booster. All accessories are included, all fittings, spare valve. Everything that Tracy sent me. You can easily verify with Tracy that my order is legitimate. There are knockoffs of Tracy Lewis's systems but see my pictures for Tracy's confirmation email.
I disliked catch cans on the boosters as you can transfer vibration to the brake pedal from catch can weight. Also I have purchased dual valve as I did not want to drill the vehicle's throttle for the 3rd port and that port does not add much value. Excellent like new condition.
I have tried cans from UPR, JLT, Elite and was mighty impressed with Tracy Lewis's Signature can. I never had any milk residue in his can, but it was collecting a lot oil with minimal fuel in it. I can show you pictures of what I have collected.
It is engineered to eliminate valve coking issues, increase fuel economy by eliminating oil associated detonation, reduce tail pipe emissions, and prolong engine life by removing damaging combustion by-products and trapping them from ingestion via the intake air charge.
Specially designed for performance, modified, street performance, and all types of forced induction vehicles. This system has been proven to be the most effective system available.
The kit includes our billet aluminum check valves. If you are generating more then 12# of boost, you should opt for our high performance check valve. You will only need one to go on the intake manifold side of the system. The other side will still utilize the standard check valve.
The Standard hose is Gates Push-Lok. This is a high quality hoses cut to fit Tahoes, Yukons, etc. You can replace hoses for $10 to get different lengths.
I sold my 2017 GMC Sierra 6.2L. I pulled my UPR Catch Can setup off before trading it in. 2014-2018 Chevy Silverado GMC Sierra 6.2L UPR Dual valve oil catch can system with Clean side separator, plug in play with billet valves. Can also work with 5.3L with a different throttle body hose. I used this setup with an aftermarket cold air intake system installed. I no no longer need this, sold my truck. Paid about $600 new from UPR. Has drain valve installed onto catch can. Can meet in Hesperia or San Bernardino, CA area or I can ship within the states. I have more photos upon request. I couldn’t include them on this post because of upload size. Asking $425
Finally broke down and bought an Elite Engineering catch can. After some research, I got over the worries of installing one and warranty issues. For GDI engines I think these are a must have. I would rate my engine as ‘severe duty’ for this application as my commute is very short, 3 miles to a Park & Ride to catch a bus. I live in MN so it’s cold in the winter, most days the engine does not fully warm up. I took pics of the back side of the throttle body, not filthy, but dirtier than I expected. I cleaned it up and plan to do again at every other oil change. The intake was wet with oil/moisture, looks like a lot, but I’d guess it’s about a tablespoon or 2. With the 6.2 the PCV vents on the front side, covienent for cleaning purposes, would expect it to be somewhat cleaner further back in the intake. I did not do a clean side separator as I don’t do WOT much, might regret it later, but intake tubes were clean and dry so should be good there. I re-used the GM PCV connectors, ordered a replacement PCV vent hose in case I need to go back to OEM. Looks sharp and I have an east swap solution. While I was there installed an AirRaid Jr kit, I like the flow better with filter and intake tube. It’s almost worth it to keep the oil change guys from always showing you your ‘dirty air filter’ ? Overall easy install and a fun Saturday project. I highly recommend a catch can for any GDI engines, eventually the valves will get dirty and need to be cleaned, I don’t think a catch can will eliminated this, but I think it will makes those cleanings fewer and father bewtween!
I just bought a 2017 GMC SLT with the 6.2L and 8 Spd. It had 8700 miles on it. It will idle a little rough at idle momentarily. I only run premium gas, is that normal for the 6.2L? I've installed a Magnaflow 12909 muffler w/o flapper valve and an AFM Momentum CAI. Also, since I've had it, it has a tick that is heard when your standing next to it, or in a drive thru with the window down. Is that normal? After reading on here I'm worried about the afm lifters causing it. I plan on getting a Hypertec programmer so I can change the afm to 70mph and adjust the shifting so it's less clunky. I also will be installing an Elite Engineering EX-2 catch can kit. Will these additions help with the common afm issues? To make it more reliable in the long run? Anyone with experience or knowledge please educate me on this, thank you
