    Son of a........ Lmao. Ok, for us Canada boys is there any kinda discount we can get? I was going to order one very soon. Also, I know you have many different versions. Can you give me the part number for the one I would need for my 06 3.6. Just to make it quicker when ordering. I will take red if the color matters for a part number. Also, is there a bracket made for my car or is it a generic bracket?

    Thread resurrection. Kind people, I have to put a very solid recommendation in for this mod for owners of the 2.8 V-6, and I assume the 3.6 with those who have been suffering the oil consumption issue. I have an '05. Used a 1/2 litre almost every fill. I checked this list intently to determine what if anything I could do to relieve the high cost of the synthetic, but most importantly give my engine a chance at a long life. I researched and did both the barb mod, and went with Tracy's catch can. I don't drive much, so it's taken some time to work. Honestly, the kit is excellent quality, but I have to admit I thought it was a bit of snake oil as it took time to work. It took me almost 9 months to put an additional 6K km on the car. Huge difference in oil consumption. Instead of adding 1/2 a litre per ttankful, I've now gone 4 full fillups without having to touch it. I was a doubter, now a believer. I did the first oil change on the car since then. As RX recommends, drain the can too. I couldn't believe the stuff that came out of it. I'm an old guy and want to get the best out of my engine, and CTS. This is an excellent and most highly recommended purchase. I would like to ask RX what the new seperating kit is for? (I purchased the breathable oil cap but it fit too high, haven't use it = is the new kit to replace it and if so how does it work?)
