    Just installed my Mike Norris catch can along with a 4.0" HPS silicon intake tube that I built. Pulled out the last vestiges of the stock intake (a bracket located along the driver's side bay) and wrapped the Lingenfelter bucket in DEI reflective heatshield material. Now I should be able to support a huge MAF and filter, but I'm actually not sure they exist.

    Preview pictures added. First one features uncut silicon tubing compared to the Volant intake tube. As far as the engine bay picture goes, things are merely functional and need to be tweaked and massively cleaned up before I post up a dedicated install thread. Probably tomorrow.

    Can you explain why you put heat shielding inside the air box? From my understanding, heat shielding is deflective to maximize heat-xfer. So you are rejecting heat inside the airbox? I could understand if heat shielding was placed on the outside, rejecting heat back into the engine bay. Did you take temperature measurements before and after? Not trying to bust your chops, just confused.

    You can't see it very well in the picture, but I did both sides. It's reflective to maximize heat rejection. Doing the inside of the airbox is probably not necessary, but I had extra material.

    Ok, btw the catch can looks nice! I wish they made CTS-V covers. I have the same Corvette covers and I always get funny looks when I lift the hood. Spectators love it but enthusiasts scratch their head.
