Catch can a must. Once you see what it removes, you'll be glad that's not going back in to your intake to be burnt and fowl things up and leave deposits on valves and cylinders. It should be first on your list.

Mods to be installed are now at 11. I think a CAI will be the last one to get.

Now to make a list of what gets installed first.

Depending on the CIA you get (I went with the Vararam) you can mount the catch can with a cheap "L" bracket on one of the two studs that held the old air box. Then I routed the hoses for the can under the T.B. The hose is cheep. leaves a nice clean look.

Ideas or suggestions?

Thanks

Personally, I would move the exhaust towards the top of your list. Making your car sound like a muscle car is always a top priority. Also, the CAI's are making 5-18 hp on the dyno. It's really an inexpensive bolt-on for that kind of power and it won't void any warranties.

I know for sure that is not true of forced induction cars. I realize the OP is not talking about that, but I think it's important to point that out. A catch can is relatively inexpensive and is especially important for FI cars.

To the OP: I don't see headers and drop springs/sway bars on your list. I highly recommend those. (Along with a dyno tune!)

A catch can removes the suspended oil that is in the hot gases in your engine block. It goes inline with the return from the PVC that regulates pressure in the block. It normally sends this in to your intake to be burnt. It is the biggest cause of deposits on valves and carbon build up in modern engines.
