Ordered my RX Performance catch can today! Gonna get one in Rally Yellow to match.

With all this ingestion being discovered I decided to be safe and get one!

It always bothered me when I would open the hood and see a nice engine bay, but the strut towers were just the Rally Yellow base coat, and looked very bland.

When my car was received, one of the guys at my dealer wrote the date they got it, and how it was the first 5th Gen they received.

I used spray paint from Autozone by Krylon called Sun Yellow, and I couldn't believe how close it matches. I was kinda nervous to do it at first, but it went on just fine, and turned out great!

Got the RX Catch Can installed, but ended up with a Polished can, but painted the bracket yellow to mix it up.

One went on the trunk lid, the other went on the silver trim piece in front of the passenger seat.

Thanks for checking it out. I love the turn signals, they are one of my favorite light mods.

The LT engine in the V6 is known to be one of the worst to ingest oil in the intake manifold. When I checked mine it had some, but others have had a whole lot! So i decided to grab one to be safe. RX is great to deal with if you wanna get one, I'd do so!

A close friend and mechanic that works at my dealership said it is normal as well for any vehicle... Some were getting so much filled up though that it was ingesting right into the engine. I should now have zero getting in so... Even if it wasn't needed, doesn't hurt.

Went to my first car show today down in Jacksonville, NC. Camaro South put on a pretty good event, but then it got rained on and was cut short. Got top 25 out of some 40+ cars. They weren't able to judge for interior and engine bay sine the rain. Was still a pretty good time seeing so many cars, I'll post a link later for the event pictures.

Im pretty happy with where I'm at on it right now... I might get the new CNC ported throttle body, and also try and get some halo headlights as well.
