I will be running to a catch can, but I am not going for over 300 hp so I do not think I will need the BAP.
Damn, I keep missing things. Your boost controller is up there clear as day, but when I'm typing a response I forget everything you have, hah.

Anyways, I'm running an OBX vacuum distribution block. It's one of the few OBX products that is simple enough that nothing can go wrong. You hook it up to the PCV line that comes from your intake manifold. It gives you 6 vac sources and is a nice, clean solution. With a boost gauge, boost controller, and BOV, that's 3 right there. You can hook up your J&S as well (though I don't run mine).

I've heard good stuff about CM stg 4 but I also recommend looking into South Bend stg 3. Holds 425 trq and is pretty easy to drive. I have probably 10k miles on mine and it's fine...though it's not holding real power yet, but I know that it can.
