I installed a catchcan!

Well I talked with Mike (b16sir1991) and I got myself a new catchcan I made from some pluming parts and an air compressor catch can. I just put the hose back into the CAI cause I didn't have anything to block off the nipple. Here's pics:

Nice! Now all you need is some smaller band clamps.

Routing the hose like that actually works out better... Your engine should warm up slightly faster in the mornings than if you plugged the intake port on the AEM.

I'll get the receipts outta the bad tomorrow and let you all know...here is a rough list:
1/2" inside diameter hose 10 ft although I didn't use 1/2 of it
Hose clamps (3 aren't needed cause I don't think I really needed the one commin outta the valve cover) (PS: Yah I know I got em big but I thought I took the ones outta the 1/2" one...guess not...oh well ;) I don't mind too much)
a little square of rubber I cut out to line the inside of the plumbing piece I bought (don't know what it's called the home depot guy thought of it for me...we actually kinda stumbled upon it since I was first gonna use a u bolt)
little plumbing piece
two 1/4" pipe to 3/8" nipple (thing the hose slides over)
air compressor thing...I think they called it an air filter...total cost I think was around 40 bucks for everything. I'll get an exact number tomorrow.
-Joe
PS: Yes Mike, I'm surprised I was able to do it also :D All by myself haha.

I figured that is what he was talking about but i did not want to waste your money and let you buy the wrong stuff. It was just funny looking at al those people up there and saying catch can and having them look at you funny. I know if we were around from where i am from they would have known what a catch can was.

Ain't gonna catch much with it hooked up the valve breather hose. Should put that catch can in the pcv hose leading to the intake manifold and watch how much oil you can trap. Mine is positioned right above the DSI clip. I think the catch can is a air/water seperator for air tools. It's in the same section as the air tools.
