That a lot of modding! What brand is your catchcan and where did you buy it? Does it also have good access to the drain valve where its mounted? I dont like how the Moroso one installs. Does it install well with the CAI? Ive been looking into that Rotofab too... They advertise a ballpark 25hp increase, is it noticeable? Also, does the CAI install easily? Factory PCV hoses used? (Aka the one on the elbow with the canister built in) You said you needed to mod your plasma lights?? How? Who makes them? Ive heard of guys melting their lenses with different running lights. Is this a problem?

Sorry for the book of questions, but I like to be well informed before making changes to my baby! Haha.

PM me an answer if you like, or just post it if youd like to enlighten everyone else too!

Thanks!

Elite Engineering Catch can and there is no pet**** to drain it, you must unscrew the can bottom to empty it. Good access to it though where I have it mounted.

CAI was no problem to install, they provide the best instructions. I can say for certain that you feel any increase in HP, but I can say throttle response and sound is off the charts.

Lights had to be modded because of the changes in bulb keys (groves to line them up with the connector), had to shave them down. I do believe if you contact AAC and let them know what year you have, this would be the best to ensure you get the right ones. No melting of any housing, in fact I knocked one loose (hit a bob cat) and knocked the light out of the cradle and was riding up against the outer light housing, no melting of any sorts.
