Ordered the satin finish, going to attempt to polish it myself. Will follow up post with results on the polishing & install later. Here are a few pic's.
Well got the catch can polished. It came out pretty good. Could have got it better but the old fingers just about had it
. Decided to install it today. (Weather cooperated)
1. Took off the engine cover and the intake tube(required)before removing intake tube unplug the Inlet air temperature electrical connection. Also removed the air filter box(not required but makes it a little easier to work). Filter box just lifts straight up off it's locating pins.
2. Remove the PCV tube from the PCV Valve and the Throttle Body.Some members have had trouble removing the tube from the throttle body. Got lucky, mine came off with very little problem.
3. Attach catch can with Z bracket to the threaded hole on the front right side cylinder head.(Hole closest to the bottom of cyl head.)
4. Attach long hose to PCV valve and the short hose to the Throttle Body. This is where I did alot of pushing, wiggle, twist, lube, curse etc.
, and the problem was I ordered the black braided lines from Billet Tech. The fitting's on the can are a little smaller than the PCV and Throttle body fittings. The hose fits the catch can perfectly. Ended up putting the ends in boiling water for a few minutes managed to get them on. Cut hoses to length and attach to catch can.(went on with no problem)
5. Reinstall the engine cover(make sure the 2 pins on the back go into the grommets at the back of the engine compartment)Drop air filter box back into location and attach intake tube(don't forget to plug in the Inlet air temperature electrical connection.)
6. Overall it took me approx 1 1/2 hrs. 1 hr of that was spent trying to get the hoses on the PVC valve and Throttle Body. A step stool is a requirement for doing just about anything in the engine compartment
(Well I'm also vertically challenged)The only tools required were a Std screw driver and a 13mm socket wrench.
