Just remembered ... in cold climates the catch can has to be emptied regularly or else the flow gets cut off and you get a CEL.

I live in northern california. When it gets really cold here, like below 60F, I have to put on a sweater.

1.5 million for a 2000 square foot house, but good weather...

After looking at some, I think I am going to go with this one.

Please post a photo when it is installed.

When do you hope to get your car back on the road?
What is the list of mods you are doing?

Eh, I haven't bought it yet. I sent an email to the co. to see if there is a base kit. It is a bit cheaper than some of the other ones I was looking at. I plan on buying one next week, once they get back to me

I opted for a catch can from RX Performance. Haven't got many miles with it yet but it seems well made and was easy to plumb.
RX Catch Can w/ Single Check Valve



Can is next to the air cleaner and I replaced the check valve with a fitting that has a hose connection. It's a 4.2 so the part load breather is on the right side.

It's not the greatest pic, just one I took with my phone while assembling. And please not too much grief about the filter being in the engine bay, I don't plan to leave it that way.

You XK guys have a side firing TB?

BTW, should it not be two catch cans? One for partial and one for full load breather hoses.

JgaXKR,
90 deg rotation from "standard". There isn't enough room between the AC line and the wiring harness that comes off of the top of the bell housing to get it in there the other way. The stepper motor shouldn't care about orientation, and I have it all back together now and the car drives great. Chasing another issue at the moment with the fuel trims but Avos has a hunch it is MAF related.

Plums,
Those of us that are of such questionable sanity as to put Andre's twin screw kit on do have a side mount TB, that is correct.

Technically yes, there should be a can on both loops but 90% of the junk comes through the part load breather side. When I had the intake off there was no oil at all in the full load side after 10 years and 70k miles. Between those two things I was swayed to put the can on the part load breather side only.

@all ...

The catch can discussion brings up the question of whether running Seafoam through the intake via the brake booster line might be a means of flushing the crud out of the intercooler.

Opinions?

My concern would be the amount of liquid you would actually need to run through there to degrease them. Would your proposal be to do this while the engine was running and mist it in?

My thought was the water/methanol injection would have cleaned them some but even after quite a few gallons ingested they were still quite dirty when I took the intercooler off. To my untrained eye, I couldn't tell that it made any difference at all.

In fairness, I had not installed the catch can yet, so was polluting at the same time as cleaning.

I ultimately submerged them in carb cleaner to get the oil residue out. That worked well but is most definitely an "off the car" operation.

Yes ... misting it through.

Nothing beats soaking off the car ... but the question is for those who have no reason to remove the intercooler for the moment.

After fixing my P0102 / restricted performance today I was driving around without the wall separating the intake from the engine hotter air and noticed a loss of power, so I thought I would re-install the cold air shield, and then went one step further and insulated the intake tube with some aluminized blanket and HVAC tape. I was originally thinking the air goes by so fast, so how much heat could it pick up, but then I thought, the air goes by the charge coolers that fast too, and they still cool the air significantly.

Question is:

Should I paint it flat black? or leave it looking like an aluminum foil hat that keeps the alien mind control devices from working?

The rubber bands are temporary
