    So, I decided to make my own. Rockstar Energy Oil Catch Can

    1 24oz. Rockstar Energy Drink can w/ cap
    2x 3/8 Brass fittings
    4 ft. 3/8 PVC hose
    1 stainless hose clamp

    You can make one out of pretty much anything with a lid. Take your time, and do it right with all the right tools and it should turn out pretty cool.

    that does look pretty cool, how strong is it though, granted there wont me a lot of damage done to it nor pressure in it. but still it's pretty cool

    It's actually stronger than you'd think. And it can handle pressure differences and/or heat/cold. When you get the can from the store they are already under a lot of pressure. You just have to be careful when you put the hoses on, so you don't bend the metal. A finger inside the can holding the fittings is all you need.

    yeah I never thought about it, when you buy it it's holding pressure because of it being carbonated great idea!

    You're right, I do! But as much as I like Rockstar, Monster would look better in my engine bay. I must make one now.
    If Red Bull ever makes a can with a lid he's almost obligated to use it as a catch can.

    no, but it makes it a lot easier to see how full it is...

    i've used nos bottles for things like this... overflows, bubblers... the plastic ones that actually look like a bottle work pretty decent.
