Catch can finally

Well my catch can came and it looks good this is the longest i waited to put one on my car. You can argue about how useful they really are but let me tell you they are for one reason. No more oil in my intake its going to look good under the hood. I will post pictures after install.

lol no more build up in my intake that's not good enough. I drive my car hard and i have seen some intakes just caked with oil. Over the years the build up gets worse and power is lost. Ls motors are notorious for this problem and seafoam wont remove it.
We pay hundred of dollars for 10 hp how much oil will it take to lose 10 hp.

I would say its for both but i think manual gets more blow back then auto. If you drive your car aggressively its a must. But i think your messing with me you know.

Install went smooth had to hose clamp the hoses were they attach to the car they were very loose. Just to help someone else cut off tool works the best to cut the braided line. I wrapped blue painters tape tight and cut threw that cut came out clean. 14 1/2 inches on the inlet tube 15 inches on the outlet tube.
