So I finally received my Rev Xtreme Catch Can. The quality was A+ and installing was easy as hell Took about 15 minutes total.





Now the scary part... I have read a hundred threads on why Catch cans are important for the LFX engine. But I wanted to highlight the even bigger issue with the oil breather line.

Now, I have only had my car for 2 1/2 months now. But when taking apart the lines for the catch can and oil breather I found a lot of wet oil residue... and when I took apart my CAI I found oil sitting in the bottom of the tube. Oil in there is not good... not good at all...



Long story short... Get a catch can and get a oil breather cap, no oil should ever be going into the TB/ Intake.

Here are a few images of the oil breather cap and how I plugged the other end that came out of the engine.

The downside of creating a stealth Camaro... It has hints of greatness.

I finally found the stripes I wanted and installed them on this hot Sunday afternoon. I think it came out pretty nice.

And the Camaro5 users talked me into it...

Dropped the K&N simply to see what sort of difference the CAI intake would make... if any.

I took my CAI install to the next level by adding the scoop. It was actually fairly easy install.

So I slammed on a ZL1 front end, but I am still waiting for my Anvil Auto Spoiler to be ready.

Only issue I am running into now is the ZL1 front end cut off the scoops air flow from the front end. Now it is time to figure out how to solve this issue.

This is the end of my ownership of Sledge L1. Now passed to my father. Now its time to jump over to the Camaro6 forums and kick off a member journal thread for the 2016 Camaro 2SS when it arrives.
