I went with the BSH. Both look like quality products. I think there is a thread out there AR vs BSH catch cans...

I have BSH. I think AR is a good can though.. I have nothing bad to say about it and AR usually makes a good product. However, the BSH I can vouch for personally... Its an install and forget product... Well, I check the dipstick occasionally

Both the AR design and BSH Oil Catch Cans seem great. We've been very happy to bring the BSH OCC and feel that it is a pivotal component for the N54 engine that will prove to be reliable for a long time! You can check out a full review on the BSH Competition Oil Catch Can here by Former_Boosted_IS !

Both great products.

RR had a decent one until people ran into leaking problems. Right now BSH and AR have great OCC's that are quilty built. You can't go wrong with either one.

Well I got the AR one personally! Quality is great but the install was a little challenging! Another fire and forget product!

I'm still looking for a good review of the AR catch can. Is somebody willing to write a review of it? I'd like to know how you drain it (easiness), how well-built it is etc.

I got the AR design OCC as well. Excellent design and quality, easy to use. Can't comment on the install, but due to the tight space in the engine compartment it's never easy.

Really recommended. I might try to write a more detailed review later once I find the time.

Hey Alan, Danny,

The OCC is a nice piece huh. As for the GTR, I didn't stick around long enough. But, considering how that car sounds stock, I can only imagine afterwards. It's tempting me so bad, maybe I should get back into Nissans again, heh.

I'm looking forward to your review. What's the procedure for draining the catch can?
