    After 2 1/2 years, the orange drain cap on my Moroso catch can tightened up to the point where I had to slice it a little in order to remove it the last time I drained the can.
    I purchased a pair of Dorman 1/2 " Bypass Caps from my local Universal Car Parts store for less than $ 4 and it seems to be working well after a month on the can.
    For those of you who may need to replace the cap at some point, here is a photo.The part # is 02255 and they are available at most car part stores.

    I wonder if they used different spouts on those. My orange caps would always fall off. The caps I use now are somewhat tight and have to be replaced every 3 thousand miles because they crack.

    I remember you posting about how you had to put ties on your cap to keep it from slipping off. Originally my cap had a nice fit but it kept getting harder to take off over time. Now I'll just replace it before it gets too tight.

    Thanks for posting. I have been looking all over for something that would replace that orange cap.

    Thanks for the tips. I have the Moroso but haven't installed it yet. So I will just pick up a couple extra caps. I like to be ahead of the ball game.

    Just in Case

    Over time both the bottom drain and top right hose connections on my catch can became loose. The drain connection right under the can loosened to the point where it dripped a couple of drops.

    Given there is only one spot to begin tightening each connection and the need for the drain and upper hose to end in the same original location,it took me a while to figure this out. The fact that I possess limited mechanical skills certainly added to this process. :D

    After removing the CC from the bracket and taking apart the loose connections,I noticed that the original teflon tape used to seal the connections had basically worn out. I picked out the remaining pieces and added some new tape. The connections snugged up pretty good and I've had no issues for the last month or so.

    I would suggest checking your connections every now and then and if necessary replace the teflon tape or use some other type of thread sealer.

    I wonder if the stronger teflon tape which is used for natural gas fittings (yellow or pink) might be a better way to go.

    Been there done that on the above but I even have better news. I had the Moroso CC on my 09 R/T, sold the R/T and the CC fits on the same mounting location on my new 2012 SRT. I just had to buy some new hoses.

    Did the 1000 mile drain of my catch can today which led me to bump this thread for any Moroso CC owners who may be having issues with the rubber cap.BTW, the replacement cap has lasted 5 years with no fitment issues. See first post for replacement cap info.
