    Re: $hit just got real!

    My guy at my local speed shop told me to switch the oil can connections opposite of each other. Like top oil catch can inlet to intake, and lower catch can inlet to valley cover.

    Do you guys agree?

    No. You have it correct. 'Dirty' air into the media first then the droplets fall to the bottom of the can and 'clean' air travels up and around the inner tube to the outlet. The other direction leaves open the opportunity for the droplets to form on the media and continue to be pulled up and out the top fitting and into the intake manifold.

    Ok thanks Boss. Just checking.

    I'm installing a 160* t-stat tonight (which I should've done when I had it all apart the first time around) changing oil, and checking header bolts and balancer bolt.....just to be safe

    You should print those instructions out and give them to your local speed shop.

    I have those instructions, as they came with my Elite Engineering Catch Can.

    I must be reading them wrong, as I think they say the valley cover goes to the top connection of the catch can.

    It does. And that's how you have it hooked up.

    The picture you have above is plumbed correctly.

    Very interested in this set-up. Just curious of the cost and power gains. I have 70k miles on the engine and want to cure my fears of a ticking lifter (I also snapped off a header bolt and really bothers me). Looking forward to your write-up. Any good rebuild/installation references to share...videos, manual, required tooling would be helpful. I contacted a local speed shop that quoted $2500 labor for an entire rebuild/installation if I dropped off parts - I might be able to squeeze in a discount on a tune. I'm handy with a wrench as long as I have good references/guidelines...looking to save a little coin to drop it on a good rear-end. Like what you done so far...Thanks!

    You should be able to do this no problem if you are handy with a wrench. I've replaced a few engines in my day, and this wasn't actually that bad at all. I took my time, and made sure I triple checked everything, and it all worked out just fine. I like working on a vehicle that all the bolts aren't rusted to $hit, and aren't hard to remove

    I'm working on the humongo writeup now. I get bored typing all this garbage, but I'm nearing the end of it finally.....I think.
