Finished a Catch can install today (yesterday, actually). I bought a universal one off eBay and put together my own mounting brackets and hoses using an oem-style pcv hose (rockauto) so the couplings remain the same on the intake manifold. The bracket mount is a bit wobbly so I’ll have to reinforce some how..but it seems to hold it in place. I like the finished product. IMG_1061.jpeg

Installed the whoosh cross over pipe, though I’d be cool and save some time but not taking the cowl off........just take it off if you’re wondering. The fit is tits, no data yet on temps until I can get some seat time tomorrow IMG_2774.jpg IMG_2775.jpg

I almost considered leaving the cowl on as well, but did what I usually do when taking something apart: watch YouTube tutorial like 4 times about it.

It honestly isn't as bad as I expected, especially once you figure out how to out the headlights back in one try(thanks @jeff).

That turbo inlet swap murdered my arms and hands though. Getting the dang bolts back in place in a spot you can barely see sucks majorly.

I'd love to hear back about how the heat wrap works out for you. If it makes any substantial change I may give it a shot. I got the whoosh powder coated black crossover so not sure if it holds heat more than the red just due to the color and material.

I'd recommend lowering the can so that it's level with or below the pcv valve; otherwise it's fighting gravity. There's plenty of vacuum pressure, so it might not be a problem, but I'd be concerned about fluid collecting in the hose.

Big Mouth Air intake install....not as easy as one is led to believe. Taking off the front bumper...simple, but time consuming busy work. Cutting the air shroud so it can fit through the front grill area...measure three times, cut once. Putting the nut on the back side of the one screw that holds it place...damn near impossible if you have larger than medium size hands. That took just as long as it took to take off the front bumper, and then some. Hindsight: I am not a big fan of the "motlen orange" they say that color is on the intake. It doesn't show in the picture much different, but in person, it is more of a true orange than a red-orange. Think I would have gone for red, or maybe yellow to match the gold flak in the paint..? Looking at the air intake compartment area, I did happen to notice (and some of you might have, as well) that there is no real fresh air from outside "air intake" other than the air that is just floating around in the engine bay. Was I missing something?

That horizantal support bar/bracket just underneath the big mouth is unsightly. Any solutions? Paint it black?

Ya, I wondered about that after installing it. Like you said, the vaccum would likely be enough but don't wanna risk condensation flowing back into the crankcase.

I can see what you're talking about with the color. It doesn't look too off st first glance but looking closely you can see it's not really a close match.
