What about the turbo manifold? The pcv had a gasket on it when I took the stocker off, should I reuse it?
Btw, any chance I could get the photos of the catch can??

If the gasket is in good shape then yes a VERY thin layer of silicone and use it , your stock stainless exh gasket will work , turbo to manifold I would do a new gasket

Does that blow oil under the car? That can make some racetracks mad.

Steve, I'm almost there! Not entirely sure if I'm going to run SMF ALL season, but I will definitely hit up a few races to see how I like it! I picked up a Miata and I've been running STS this season.. different, but fun!

I'll be running this car out at Miller Motorsports Park and I'd hate to leave oil out there.. is there anyway I could route it elsewhere for peace of mind?

When you go to the track make sure you put 100 octane or better in there and add it with less then a 1/4 tank , this is for safety , 93 octane fuel is not ment to be raced with , its not ment for much of anything these days

If you want to give me a call I will be glad to go over how to connect your engine breathers for the track , many tracks dont allow breathing the engine to atmosphere with out a catch can
