Catch Cans

So who all has one, and where did you mount it. I've been debating on where to mount this thing forever. My coolant resevior is where my stock airbox went, which would be the easiest location, so thats out. How about the firewall?

I've seen them on the firewall, attached to the intake's heatsheild, and attached to the battery box on the other side.

Just drill a hole straight through the firewall and place the mounting bracket supplied with the catch can behind the firewall, and bolt it on! This is where it sits:

As you can see I have a bracket in front and behind the firewall. Mine came with two metal brackets.

The filter on the catch can is just a breather filter...

....and usually with K&N/JR filters you wash and re-oil them, not replace. Next time you're down toward Automotion ask Paul for a ride in that car and I doub't you'll question the choice of air filter

I love google...

Oil Catch Tanks collect the oil, moisture and blow-by gas that causes carbon and sludge build-up in the intake system and engine to keep them clean even under the hardest driving conditions. An oil catch tank is also an excellent engine dress up item that will give your car a racing image.

I've always wanted a racing image...

Yeah, thats exactly what it does. On the 9k it also allows you to ditch the throttle body preheater and all the associated plumbing and also makes installation of a larger turbo inlet pipe even easier. My car runs significantly better w/o all that bs plumbing in there.

Can't go wrong there!

I can't even see the logo on mine bc of the way its mounted.

One thing I would do is install some sort of baffling in the can so that the oil that will collect in the hose and can (mostly vapor) has more surface area to stick to. I used 1/2 of a new steel wool pad in mine which seems to do the trick.
