The Catch Can that used to mount to the lower part of the head had to be moved as three of those holes required mounting bracket studs for the blower.

I temporarily had it mounted a little "too" high initially, just to keep it mounted

and have since brought it down about 3" , needed a longer bolt to sit in a lower mounting point that already had a thick bracket on it.

before:



after:





Much easier to remove and empty now compared to when it was under my Volant.

I was really hoping to get all my gauges, sensors and wire management finished up this weekend,
then move onto dropping the tank for the fuel pump swap and get a good start on the water/meth kit.

Fuel pump upgrade kit (340 LPH pump):


All I got done was the gauges and sensors wired, that took the better part of the day alone.
oh well, slow progress is better than no progress.

Wideband bung welded just below cat on drivers downtube
(not enough room above without removing it)



Gauges plugged in and mounted,
but now there's a crap load of wires to route through the firewall...






Some connector ends could be disassembled, thanks to Brad having the right tool
But others had to be cut and re-soldered after feeding them through...PITA!

I took pic's of the connector ends that were too large to feed through my firewall holes that were drilled for two small grommets.



I used color coded tape on the wire bundles so I would know which gauge they came from
since the boost and fuel pressure had the same colored wires.

power, ground and illumination... check, that was the only easy part I love Red, Black and White LOL!!





Map sensor for Boost gauge mounted to a custom made bracket (Thanks' Brad!)
bolted to the bracket that once held the engine cover prong beside the oil spout.

Upper left is the T fitting to the vacuum line,
I guess I could have taken a pic before install, all sensor connections are under and to the side.



Wideband connector plugged in and functional too,
But still have yet to find a good place to tap the fuel line for the pressure sensor.

There's still a bunch of extra loose wires for other alternate gauge functions,
Those can wait for now after farting around all afternoon I called it a day.

Next on the hit list, was my Water/Meth kit
BUT the printed instructions they sent have no pictures or diagrams





LOL!... Do I feel lucky? not really email sent to AIS





I think I'll take it easy today, adjust my gauge high/low warning levels and colors for each setting
...then do some easy yardwork and drink beer.

I've got an identical ram to yours and my ripp kit is on its way. I am on the fence about headers, is it a waste if I don't do headers? I'm looking to keep my stock tranny hopefully until,the spring, then do the headers TC and tranny, probably go with L & M trans unless you are disappointed in yours.

Definitely want to get at least Shorty headers and Gut the stock cats
Ripps tune turns off the rear o2 sensors, so no worries on throwing codes.

I ordered my kit way back in May, but waited until I had a replacement transmission on hand before installing the Ripp kit.

I'd hate to be stranded with a broke stock trans, and no I wouldn't trust it to last longer than a month or two,
We are talking +200whp over stock here afterall.

I know a lot of guys that only added 50hp NA are burning up stock transmissions.

Sure you can try to tell yourself you wont use all that power,
dont kid yourself...if it's there you will use it, if not...why bother installing it
