Justin you should start with a DC Sport Cold air intake. It give your car one hell of a sound and for $150 you really can't beat it! I'm glad you have your dream car! Good luck

Installed my DC Sport Cold Intake as my first "Real" mod
Looks really slick and I have seen a small increase in Fuel Economy.

Finally got the chance to install the catch can that I bought like 2 weeks ago. The mount that came with it was trash so I ended up buying an L shaped bar from Lowe's and had a friend cut it and drill an extra hole to mount it.

I can tell the can is kinda cheap cause one of the can's mounting threads stripped literally the first time I tried to put it in, so i ended up getting some clamps to tighten it up to the bar. Its very sturdy!

Mounted it near my CAI and it looks great! Thinking about painting the Valve Cover the same Candy Red color

That's the wrong place to conections the oil catch can. You want to have it hook up to the pipe that goes from the intake maifold to the engine. It's right there between the first and second spark plugs (going from left to right)

You're probably right. I searched the site where people recommended to connect the can and most people said to the PCV like you said, but some people said it was bad (I cant remember why, ill have to find it again) So i just went with the intake route. If my can doesn't catch anything ill just switch it to the PCV

You won't really need it. It's little to almost no oil that goes back into an engine that's n/a. It's mainly for any car that's running boost.

Would it be problematic if I just ran a long line from the PCV/IM ports to the catch can's current location? Or should I move it closer?
