^^ Time for a catch can! As mutch as I hate to admit it, they work. Too many reputable guys have proven it. I thought it was a waste of money the first time I read about them on here. I thought it was just an excuse to put something shiny under the hood.

Yeah I have been seriously thinking about that. Any idea what they go for and where I can pick one up?

on mine the front side of the TB "flap" was clean. it was the backside that you can't see unless you take it off that was disgusting.


and Billet Technologies im pretty sure is a common pace to get catch cans. I think they run between $100-200. I can't use one on my 2007 so I've never looked into getting one that close

I was just checking out Billet website. Looks like around $200 shipping included. Going to order one this week.

I cleaned mine out on Friday.. It was pretty nasty on the inside.. Only problem was that I couldn't get the plug to come off of the throttle body even with the bolts off.. So I ended up Laying a tarp down in the engine, covered everything and gave it a real good cleaning.. looks nice and can feel it a little too.

There is a little red slider clip you have to slide toward the passenger side then it unplugs. But once I plugged it back in I couldn't get the red clip to slide back over. But it's on there snug so I'm not worried about it

I tried forever.. I could get the red clip to slide.. but the damn thing would not unplug no matter how much i tried.. and I am pretty strong too..
Ended up getting clean with the plug still in.
