no, I tried during my build but the local tire shops machine was broken. The tires are so big and a harder compound, the machine couldnt do it. I may get it done soon.

Car looks great, we have a lot of the same mods, Gauges, OD Cog, A -Pillar, Maggie.....If I can make a recommendation, go with the RX Monster Catch Can.

Double digit what? What is y our WHP @ what boost?

I don't see justification for a larger catch can @ this level. Why do you say?

Double Digit MPG

I'm over 600RWHP, last place that dyno'd my car I broke their dyno

I'm just thinking in the future if you want to upgrade, that Monster can is the best of the best, I had the dual valve but going with the Monster can next week when my cam gets installed. I'm around 12psi boost running Meth as safety, but the cam should drop it down a bit. What boost you running?

See sig and/or build link.......I was tuned in like 50* weather and pulled 12lbs. The warmer it gets it drops. In like 65* I pulled 10 and barely touched 11. Until/if I put a cam in for more HP (with rockers n springs).....and maybe meth when retuning.....I don't see a need for monster can and even then a lot of people are saying it's not necessary.

For the peanuts the Monster costs over the dual valve, it's a no brainer. But you are right, it is for larger boost/builds so if you plan on staying at that power level then you should be good. Tracy @ RX is always available to answer any questions.

Not really wanting to spend more $ @ RX anyways.....the can they sent me had a huge scratch right on the front of it and the box also didn't even have the bracket/s inside. Had to get one overnighted to me by Jessika on the last day of my build.

I don't think I've ever seen double digit MPG and I have 22oo miles, but not stock and not relly a heavy foot (well sometimes )

Get those 315's on yet? Curious if the clearance is there when having passengers in the rear and going over bumps in the road. I'm putting the 305's on, but if you don't have any issue's then I won't. Thanks!
