i drive the car on ramps, crawl underneath and tighten them down.
the car started to get hella raspy, those 4 bolts were the culprits....

Odd, never had a problem with mine. Add lock washers maybe?

You're weak!!!! Pretty sure I just used anti seize but I'd have to look at it. Haven't touched it since installing it last year.

I am getting ready to install this generic catch can I ordered on SCAmazon. Hopes are not too high, but how bad could it be?

Where do you guys plan to install these? Between the intake and valve cover? Will be interesting to see how much oil is collected and how often it needs to be emptied.

@Reeses_Cars should help keep some oil off the rotor screws!

This was sooooo worth it! My wife kept complaining I smelled like oil and gas when I got in the house. I now have a happy marriage again.

I installed it on one of the front braces, near the braille battery. Without that batter it would be tough to fit it in there. I'll post a picture later.

Between the PVC and the SC inlet. Hadn't got around to figuring out where to mount the can though, so I'd like to see what @Reeses_Cars does.

Anything after the throttle body would be a vacuum source, right? Is that can rated for vacuum/boost?
That's why I was thinking of using the valve cover breaker.

To be honest, I don't know. That's one of the main reasons I haven't installed yet. I've read thread after thread and haven't really determined one way or the other.


These are the threads I'm referencing.

I was going to go with a breather element on the valve cover, but after reading through those I decided just to put the stock vacuum hose back on as that's how the kit said to install in the instructions, so I figured that would be the best bet until I decided one way or the other.

Here’s a couple pictures. I am venting the “Out” port to the ground. Basically I don’t want to send that stuff back through the blower of the aftercooler

Basic maintenance today. Engine oil and filter change, engine air filter change, and cabin air filter change. For good measure, I also installed hydraulic hood struts on my wife’s Mazda CX-5.

So isn't this just like putting a breather filter on the valve cover? Without any vacuum assist off the intake, nothing is really pulling gases out of the crankcase. I guess the can still does a better job of separating the oil from the air.

That's called TLC. has anyone been able to do the hydro hood struts for our cars yet? I really miss this mod

It's very much like it except the smell from a breather is gone. It's especially obvious now that the car is running more on the rich side.



I also don't want to run the risk of pulling any of that stuff back into the intake under high boost. I know I can put it before the TB, but that supercharger pulls in an massive amount of air through.

and I still don't know if this can is rated for boost.

I'll inspect if after a few drives, and change it if I have to. I can always tap the intake tube later down the line if needed.

That's where I'm stuck. I can't decide if I should actually run the can back to the SC inlet or just cap it off. I guess since I already have it running to the inlet per the install instructions sticking a can inline can't really hurt much.

Finally, caved in and bought UR lightweight crank and idle pulleys. The crank will be here over the weekend and I guess the idler will be in sometime next week.
