Looks like the Peterson can has a -12 fitting and not -10 like you said. But maybe you are right about the other fitting being bigger on the Element can.

I really put a lot of r&d into developing exactly what i needed and when it wasn't perfect we redesigned it.

I honestly wish I made 300% but I don't and when its wholesaled it's hardly worth my time but trust me when I say it's priced fairly. If you want a Peterson can buy one, if you want our 3.5" with larger fiting ports, AN Aeroquipe fittings, mounting brackets, quality hose, high temp glass reinforced fittings, and proper instructions, then support our company
I guess you've never measured the Peterson can. Because it is NOT 2.5". See the quote/link above. Tom, mind if I measure your Element can's diameter at the next meet?

OH WAIT, I don't have to since Element says it right here on their website...

- Dimensions: 11.25" Length x 6" Diameter
- 3" Diameter Aluminum Catch Can
- 1.4" breather port
- Wire Mesh/Cotton Breather Filter
- -12 AN Crankcase Breather Port
- -12 AN Socketless Aluminum 90% fitting
- -10 AN Head Breather Port (or can be used as a -8 AN Intake Vacuum Port)
Also, this last statement confuses me. How do you connect a -8AN or -10AN connector to the same fitting?

I sure do love me a smoke and mirrors show.
