the website doesnt say it has a drain hole, but still says you have to unscrew the bottom to empty it. Also anyone know what the total lenght of the hose needed for installing both catch cans, 40-60 bucks for hose for each can its very expensive

You were right - should have listened! Guy on another site said 1/4 NPT. He was wrong. They are 1/8 NPT for sure.

You don't need to buy any hoses or fittings. The UPR kit comes with them. At least, the kit I ordered from Stage 3 did. After one tank of gas, I already had ~3 oz of gassy smelling oil in my passenger side can. Driver side was bone dry. Overall, happy with the peace of mind from this purchase.

Ahhh, gotcha. I figure the cheap hose is fine, as the temps don't get hot at all. Then again, summer isn't here yet...

I installed one a week ago. After 1,000 miles, I already have about a half an once of oil in it... I can't stand the though of how much has already accumulated in my engine after 25,000+ miles without one.
