there's a flap of metal that sticks out from the cowl panel (under the wipers) right above the firewall. bolt it to that, just make sure you still have your exhaust heat shield.

Does an oil catch can help with an n/a setup?

Here is where i put the mount

Mounting the catch can.. its on a slight angle hopefully that helps, before going any further make sure your hood closes with the can in place

Use a hair dryer to get the hoses on.. it makes this A LOT easier.. just heat the hose up for a minute or 2 then while ur sliding it on heat it up a lil

Run the hoses over to the can

Add ur engine cover (if u still use it, i do cause i dont have time to paint the valve cover)

FINSHED PRODUCT
