is there a reason for the dual can setup vs a single can with dual ports?

Just being safe given we are going to pull a good vacuum on it at the track. We were getting so much oil going through the baffle that when we put a vacuum on it was gushing through the catchcan and maxing out the oil return system. That lead to oil backing up in the turbos. So, we have done what we can to not pull oil out with the vacuum and the first catch can will pick up what we do, then the second can should catch the vapors and keep everything nice and clean.

Hit about 500 once, but it was really breaking up bad. Pulled some additional timing out of it and were able to get a fairly consistent 440-450 RWHP on 9 psi.

Car is doing great for the most part just hit 20,000 miles after 3 years lol. Have had it parked the last week as the weather is terrible as of late. The car slides bad in wet weather damn torque lol. I have to baby the clutch bad when I encounter wet ground lol. Beat a Vette a few weeks ago great moment lol. Having one turbo replaced and another checked for seal damage. Have the same baffle issues you have and it's backing up even with a -10 setup on the system at times. Getting things ready to get the rebuild going. Also need to reconnect the meth kit as I haven't used it since the controller went bad lol. And Vince hasn't been much help as I'm running AFR's at 10.8 at WOT. I found a trick playing with the spark plugs gapping also.

That's good man. Do need to get that AFR fixed. We found you could run the LFX pretty lean and still not get any knock (gotta love DI). Hope the rebuild goes well, keep us up-to-date on the progress. Time to get several 450-500 RWHP V6s.

Nice build Gretchin. We added a ZL1 pump in tank as well. Depending on the popularity of these engines we may develop a HPFP that is belt drivin.
