Jake: Jake here for AmericanMuscle. And today, I'm taking a look at the American Brothers Design Oil Catch Can for 2009 and newer 5.7 and 6.4-Liter Hemi Challengers. If you're in it for the long haul with your Challenger, especially if you're hitting the track or planning to do some additional engine mods, then an oil catch can should be on your list. This one from American Brothers Design is high-quality, well designed, plus it's officially licensed by Mopar. So, you know it's gonna perform well and also look great in your engine bag. Before we dive in here, though, I do wanna make a quick note regarding fitment and that this is not gonna fit your car if you have a sound tube on your factory intake. So, if you've got that extra little sound tube thing hanging off of the side of your factory inlet tube, you're not gonna be able to fit this one, you're gonna need a different part.Now, oil catch cans are an easy and an effective mod that have sort of a unique place in the market. They don't add any power and you can't see them, of course, unless the hood is popped. So, they don't fit into the same types of categories that most other modifications do. Catch cans are much more focused on longevity and reliability than anything else. This one just happens to look really good when it's mounted under the hood. Long and short of it is catch cans also known as oil separators are designed to capture excess oil vapors that get recirculated from the bottom of the engine back through the top end via the PCV system. After a long enough time, if that's left unchecked, those excess vapors can get caught in your intake valves or other parts of the intake system, and that's gonna result in poor engine performance and gas mileage. Then you've gotta pay for a valve cleaning or deal with some potential other issues. But you can help prolong your engine's life and maintain its performance by installing a catch can like this one. So, this is gonna mount in line with your Challenger's PCV system, and the filter inside is gonna draw out that oil that is coming through.As you can see, this is a honeycomb-style aluminum filter, and this is gonna allow the air to move through the system like normal. So, it comes in one side, goes down, gets filtered out, and then goes right back up. So, it's gonna keep the pressure stabilized and keep everything flowing like it should all while capturing the oil in this canister. Now, the canister also has a removable stainless steel mesh filter that's gonna help pull out any particulates that might come through as well. You can just screw this one off and empty up any oil that's captured. The canister just screws right back in, and you've got an O-ring here to help seal it off. The other thing I like is that the top part of this also overlaps with the canister itself. So, between that and the O-ring, you're not gonna have any issues with spillage. You also got some grips on the bottom of the canister that's gonna help getting this thing detached, even when it's inside of the engine bay.Now, the whole thing is made from CNC machined solid billet aluminum, and it's actually finished in a Mopar paint color. So, this is gonna look excellent under the hood of your car, especially if your Challenger happens to be this shade of black. You'll also get high-quality fittings and new hoses as well. So, the whole thing is gonna be able to stand up to the underhood temperatures that you're gonna encounter. You may have also noticed that you get this really sharp-looking engraved Mopar logo. And again, this is an actual Mopar licensed product. So, you get some extra piece of mind there as well, plus it just looks really cool. Now, you may have noticed too that this is a pretty small canister, but you shouldn't have to empty this very often. Most engines only produce about an ounce of oil every 1,000 miles or so, and your results might vary there, of course. I would recommend that you check the canister every 500 to 1,000 miles or so when you first install it. Get an idea of when it needs to be serviced. However, depending on where you live and how you use your car, you may not get as much oil vapor, so you may be able to let it go longer. But for example, if you live in a cold climate, it's more likely that you're gonna need to check this more often since cold weather often means that there's gonna be more condensation, which means you're gonna have more oil filling this guy up.Now, pricing-wise, this one is gonna come in toward the top end of the category, running around $300. But these are also made to order. And again, they are super high-quality, Mopar license, and you're getting a lot of good stuff here. So, even at a higher price than some others in the category, it is still less expensive than getting a professional valve cleaning at your mechanic. And it's gonna keep your car running longer and better. So, even for the price, I don't really see much of a downside here. Installation is also quite simple, coming in at a one out of three on our difficulty meter. It should only take you about 30 minutes to get this installed. All you gotta do is mount the bracket in the car, make sure this is screwed on tight, and then hook up the hoses. Pretty straightforward. And to show you how to get it done, let's throw it over to one of our AM customers right now.Man: Today, we're gonna use a 15-millimeter socket, the 3/8 drive socket wrench, 8-millimeter Allen key for this screw, and we have a coupling fitting, we got two pre-cut tubes of fuel line, and our oil catch can.To start off, we're gonna take off this tube just using our hands. And then we're gonna take off this bolt using a 15-millimeter socket with a 3/8 drive wrench. Then we're going to install the oil catch can, and we're gonna start to screw using our hands. So, this bolt was here, but we're not gonna need it for this installation. Next, we're gonna get our pre-cut line. We're turning this out though towards this opening. I'm gonna put this coupler right in here. And then start this end in here. And that's it.Jake: That's gonna do it here for our review and install of the American Brothers Design Oil Catch Can for 2009 and newer 5.7 and 6.4-Liter Hemi Challengers. Thanks for watching.

Free from Oil. Installing this American Brother Designs Black Oil Catch Can with Mopar Logo ensures that your car’s intake system will be free from oil. It serves as a filter for your car’s intake system and prevents oil and other contaminants from mixing with the air needed for combustion. Without a catch can, expect your intake valves to be caked in oil, resulting in a loss of power and reduced gas mileage.
Premium Billet Aluminum. To deliver long-lasting years of service, American Brother Designs built this Black Oil Catch Can with Mopar Logo out of premium billet aluminum material. This allows the catch can to withstand your underhood’s extreme temperature without cracking or breaking. Furthermore, this catch can is completed with a sleek black coating to give your underhood a more impressive look.
Application. The American Brother Designs Black Oil Catch Can with Mopar Logo is designed to fit 2009-2022 5.7L and 6.4L Dodge Challenger HEMI models.
Technical Note. If you have a Vehicle that is equipped with a sound tube on the air intake, the included offset mounting bracket will not allow you to mount the Oil Catch properly.
