    i have a similar can, its too big.
    right pain to fit(finding space to fit it)
    i just did up the hoses real tight and it works fine.
    try getting a smaller tank.
    i think superkarl uses exhaust baffling in his catch can.
    that reminds i must get some.

    Ive had to look at this as, someone used a beer can on my s3 ..... well i managed to get one made for me to my own spec for £140 + £10 P&P its a baffled vented can. 1 litre with viewing tube and vent filter and inlet/outlet is 19mm

    Give lee a shout @ info@tigweld4u.com he can do you a quote and to your own design and is very helpful

    I found the lead time for both the saikoumichi and the 42 draft was too long for me but if your happy to wait there a good solid choice

    Once received ill post some pics!!!

    Ive been talking to a fabrication/tuning place i use about the cans they use ... its a vented can which is hard to describe ...
    I will try and draw it up later... see what people think

    I thought the £80 stealth one was expensive for a metal can and some perforated metal, the alternative is £140 !

    What would be the downsides of fitting the 15mm outlet ones sold on ebay ?
