So I bit the bullet and just got it. Quick review:

Mounting is not vehicle specific. It is a universal mounting bracket is only held on by one of the firewall mount bolts (compared to 2 on the Mishimoto). I noticed today that due to the poor mounting, the bracket rattles against something: firewall, the black metal covering (idk what its called), or the AC line. Not sure as it happens when I initially press on the gas pedal.

Hoses are long and they do not feel like an upgrade. Moreso the same caliber as the OEM hose. I trimmed some down to size

Install is straight forward. They label the ends of each hose to where they should go. I also watched the Mishimoto YT install video just to be sure. I was pressed for time due to kiddos but I will have to clean up the hose placement.

I made an offer for $100 on Ebay and the seller accepted. I guess you get what you pay for.

Thanks for reporting back and posting the pics! I'll be in the market for a Catch Can next month or two and I think I'll be sticking with Mishimoto.

Maybe you can spray some rubber rockerguard on the bracket to make the rattle go away.

@cbr600f4i thanks for the evaluation/feedback on this product. You said it right... "guess you get what you pay for". Have found that out more times than I'd like to count.

In those pictures, the top hose looks like it's got a metal fitting/connector in the middle of it - what is that?
Also, in the ebay ad, the mounting bracket looks like it has two mounting holes, did yours not come with two?

To be honest, I do not know what that metal fitting is. I do know that the Mishimoto one has something similar on their hose as well. Possibly a one-way valve?

It does come with 2 holes on their mounting bracket but it will not fit behind the 2 bolts as the arm is too short. You would have to remove that black metal casing if you wanted to attempt to use it this way. I did remove the black casing to see if the holes would match up and the distance of the hole on the bracket are shorter than the distance of the firewall bolts, so no go!

In the instructions, they even said to mount it to by only one hole/bolt. Definitely not secure!

Right? Was worth a shot! The actual can looks similar to the Mishimoto design and possibly the same dimensions. I did email Mishimoto to see if they sell the mounting bracket separately but they do not :(

UPDATE!!!

Just ended up purchasing the Mishimoto Oil Catch Can.

Hopefully my review helps those whoever consider the Bull Boost version. I'm sure the mechanics of their catch can work but the install and fit are definitely not clean and may end up damaging the AC line from the rattle/contact it makes.

Bummer! I thought maybe it was close enough to where you could jury-rig it... I have a Mish unit on mine, I don't remember seeing a mid-hose fitting, I will have to look again later today...

This is the Mishimoto kit. Looks like theirs is black vs the Bull Boost metal looking one.

Thanks for the update! I'm definitely keeping the Mishimoto one in mind as my next purchase.
