I tend to agree with Chapel ... I am kind of in the same boat as you mechanically, but, kind of, sort of, am willing to try some stuff. I did a catch can (easy on the install scale), but, as I was doing my research didn't really get the entire story; not sure if I would still do one now or not. That said, I thought (please correct me if I am wrong) a catch can served more of a function on a V6 than it does on a V8 and, if I had a V6, I wouldn't feel as bad about going with one. For my V8, its on now, it did catch some oil after about 1500 mile (about a tablespoon and a half), so I am not going to take it off. Of course, there is the crowd that believes a catch can is totally useless, regardless. I have my CAI cold air induction and VMax ported throttle body sitting in boxes on my dining room floor. I think I am going to get a Vararam Power Wedge to go with them, so I'm on hold for the installation, but it is coming. I'm very confident that is within our installation experience. My understanding is that I should not need a tune for this combination. Virginia is pretty strict on emissions also, but I was told that, since I am not in one of the metro areas, I don't have to get an emissions test, so I can get a little more liberal. That said, I'm not ready to toss a perfectly good exhaust and will very likely be waiting a little bit to replace it and will do more research on a set up with long tube headers and high flow cats; still need to confirm the state police don't care, but I think I am good. Personally, I think the headers and exhaust will be enough for me, so I'm not even considering cut-outs. I have upgrade rims from the dealer, so I am pretty happy with them, but I think there will be a day when I add a set of cold weather tires to my collection and I'll shop for rims and tires then, not high on my list now though.
