Here is what I did and how I did it...You can obviously do it however you want as this is only how I did it and should be only used as a guide!


Parts Used:

Elite Engineering Catch Can
Elite Engineering Catch Can Bracket
7' 1/2" (13mm) Heater Hose
Hose Clamps
Bolt, Washer and Nut

Tools Used:

Allen Key
SlipJoint Pliers
HackSaw
Ratchet and Socket (Whatever size bolt you use)
Drill with Metal Bit


Ok, Lets get started...


First locate your connections...




Here is a wide shot of the area...



Now, I decided since I dont have my HUGE stock air intake anymore that I would use that space to mount my can! I just had to find how I could make it fit/work!

I decided to mount it right to the wall next to where I put the resistor for the front turn signals...



I unscrewed the resistor just to be safe...



I attached the EE bracket to the EE catch can using the supplied screws...




Next I looked for a bolt, washer and nut that would work...



Once I found one, I found a bit that would do the job and started drilling...



I unscrewed the bottom of the can, positioned it and ratcheted it on TIGHT...




I then screwed the bottom of the can back on...



Screwed the resistor back on...




I then ran to AdvancedAuto and bought a 7' piece of 1/2" (13mm) heater hose...



I measured and cut the pieces using a hacksaw and then put them on the stock fittings...



I then put them on the can fittings and clamped them down with the supplied clamps...




Here are some pics of it installed and how I ran the hoses...




And here is the finished product with the engine cover back on...





Now I know some of you have made comments about the distance and if it still can suck the stuff out...I tested it and I cant feel any diff on my thumb before/after!


Like always this is just how I did it...I take no responsibility for you!

Bro it looks great!


Two things:

1.) Do you think the oil will be sloshing back and forth with that long of a hose? I personally would have mounted it on the strut bar.

2.) Clean that fawking engine! :D

Thanks man...

As for 1) I dont think there will be enough oil to "slosh" and I didnt like the look of the strut bar mount! And 2) NEVER! LMFAO!

Looks nice, Like Joe, i would have mounted ti closer but it still looks good. Seems like a very easy and straight forward install for anyone.

3 part,
1 - I like that bolt just chilling under the coolant reservoir tank where you bolt down the stock intake box. :D
2 - What's with the coolant reservoir line going over the BWoody?
3 - What's with the crankcase line (from the BWoody)? Going into the headlight? :lol:
