Stock gap...I'm told you don't want to mess with the gap on Iridium plugs. How about you?

Long time no update since i already had an existing build thread, however I will upload the changes since the last update, tomorrow.

For now, I was not exactly happy with the location of the E2 catch can since I had changed the CC set up from the IPF set up. So I bought the L bracket from Elite and routed it to the nut by the head unit. Practically the perfect spot, no clearance issues and it looks a tad better imo. I just finished connecting the dirty side hose but left the phone upstairs, so the older pictures will do until later today.

Also, can anyone elaborate if we NEED the OEM fresh air tube on the clean side? Kind of curious to what its function is.

Bumblebee's Getting IPF Boosted!

No need for the clean side tube. I capped mine off with the use of the GM clean side separator. However the way you have the routing does not seem right. Need to supply air to the separator and vacuum from the opposite side of the manifold to provide flow across the engine.

So no clean side tube should be running to the CC?

Nope that's why you have the separator on the clean side oil fill. This is similar to a CC. You vacuum off the dirty side to have airflow across the engine and get rid of unwanted junk.

OK, thanks for the explanation. I'll be sure to take it off then.

Okay so i finally got the set up correct and routed the way I want. Hopefully I will see some type of change. I've barely caught an ounce since i bought my elite can in 2013. Don't think it's too unusual since I haven't driven over 4k miles since then.

Every other fill up check your clean side separator for anything in the tube connecting. Some have found oil residue due to partial vacuum created by the connection to the IPF inlet. I have put a check valve in the line so air only goes into the engine through the separator. I haven't had the problem on my car but have seen a couple have oil residue sucked back into the IPF inlet tube and settle on the mass flow sensor creating a problem. Just check every so often.

Thanks...I have checked it before and have found oil residue there, also at the other end (where the elbow was not all the way in the inlet) as well. Hopefully there's not too much..

do you have a one way check valve from the top of the intake manifold, so when boost is built it does not push pressure through the can?

There is a check valve in the fitting...as I talked to Steve from elite that as I understand....does not push pressure through the can.
