Why wouldnt you do both, they are two seperate thigs and this way u will catch more than with just the rx can. If you bought a rx can, then it makes no sense for you to not run the gm seperator too. They dont interfer with each other at all and clean two seperate parts of engine.

i guess i assumed that one would interfere with the other...i haven't had a chance to physically see either of them yet, or even look in a camaro's engine bay in a long time. not trying to threadjack, but was it ever decided why GM claimed their separator was for off-road use only??

The catch can mod is maybe the easiest mod on these cars that require a wrench. Install it at the same time you do the CAI they'll be a little more room. It literally can be done in ten minutes. There are a few dyi threads....think even a video or two.

Did I mention the designated clutch reservoir?

BTW welcome to the Camaro family!!

Clean and tight.

Do you keep the engine cover off?

Yep I keep the engine cover off. Most the time. I switched from a K&N to the Cold Air Inductions.

great photo what benefit does the clutch reservoir provide? i remember reading somewhere else you were getting it, but dismissed it for myself since it's going to be a long time before mine is able to see a track and figured i wouldn't need it for pleasure cruising out here

From what I have seen the designated cluth reservoir is being added because the clutch and brakes share the same reservoir as it is from the factory, making it possible for them to contaminate eachother. Clutch dust in the brake lines etc.

The mod is not just for the track. It is a way of keeping clutch dust from degrading the performance of the brakes clutch and transmission. Very cheep and easy mod.

Is there a separate thread somewhere regarding the designated clutch reservoir? I've heard about the issue with contamination in the shared reservoir, but hadn't heard there was an easy fix.

Let me know how the lights work out for you. Everyone says to get the RS package, but I'm still trying to decide it I want it or not. Getting halos AND fogs for cheaper kinda sounds like the way to go to me.

Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales were kind to me...here's my current list of mods ordered/received and where i bought from
Fender Stripes- mnpcustoms.com
Front Fascia/Upper Grill Blackout -mnpcustoms.com
Skipshift Eliminator – ebay.com
Rx Catch Can single valve, yellow, no breather – revextreme.com
Oracle Ghosted Yellow LED Sidemarkers –southwestspeed.net (red LED interior kit included)
Diablo Trinity Tuner –marylandspeed.com
RGB Colorshift Halos 2.0 w/Fog halos –automotivelightstore.com
LED tinted Reverse Lights –automotivelightstore.com
Bi-xenon morimoto mini stage3 kit 6000K H13 relay H1 – theretrofitsource.com
Roto-fab CAI, yellow box/hoses – jdpmotorsports.com

...suppose i got a little carried away, but some of the deals were too good to pass up, and this way i'll still spend more time with the car after i put him in the garage for the night
