Looks killer man! Thanks for sharing your ease of installation thoughts.

Been getting alot of questions on these and this is nice for those who want to "make sure it fits" and see "what it looks like" before they buy.

Black always looks good in there!

Oh, you can go back and edit your OP by clicking the box under it if you wanted. It's a neat feature for those typos lol.

Cost was $139 with free shipping from JDP Motorsports painted in the color of your choice! They are an authorized RX Performance Products dealer.

Quick question...if I had to choose between an oil breather cap and a catch can...which would be MORE beneficial in keeping oil out of the intake? I'm leaning toward catch can, but just want to be sure!

In my opinion, you are leaning correctly.

The can deffintly will catch way more oil, the breather is there in place of your oil fill cap so that the oil can get air otherwise you would have a line that would travel from there to your air intake and would circulate through your engine where it shouldn't be going. So if you get a breather you can get like $2.00 plugs at sears and plug the holes where the line was

Is that the Standard bracket or driverS side bracket? Which one is best for the LFX engine?
