The T3 upgrade is officially on hold indefinitely.
With a 5 month old and one less income it's just not going to happen.

On a side note I have done away with the oil catch can completely.
I ran the hose from the valve cover to just behind the driver's side wheel.
The crankcase hose is just below the radiator, but I'll probably move that in the future.
After moving the valve cover hose to the new location I don't have nearly as much funky fumes coming in through the HVAC system.
Of course the odor is still outside the vehicle, but that's better than inside with the windows up.

I never had an oil in the catch an anyway.
It mainly held condensation and some blowby crud.
I'll now have to deal with a bit of funk dripping onto my concrete, but I'll live.

I also did this so i could possibly reroute my ambient pipe in the future.
I'd like to move it so it doesn't cross under the vehicle...
