Here is mine. Ownership for 3yrs now and a total of 8900 miles. Mod list too long to list. Some thoughts of selling for a truck before I retire in 19 months.

She arrived home all frustrated about taking the detour to Lowe's and how traffic was bad. She throws the plug at me and I go to the garage to install it. I wondered if the breather box had any RX stickers and I look under the pile of paper in the box and there was two plugs

It Allows you to delete the Clean air tube (tube that runs from drivers side valve cover to intake tube) which stops the possibility of oil being dumped into the intake.

Where does the oil go? Do you still need a catch can?

Nice to meet you Cj. Lets talk about why we are addicted to camaro5. Discuss...HA!
I do still need a catch can. I was wondering what happens to the oil too. Maybe the breather cap and the drilling of the passenger valve cover fixes the problem?

I'll bite. Here's a few shots of mine from a while ago. I have spent money in the motor, but only about $20 on aesthetics, some nice blue paint for the beauty rings and interior. I've got the black hashes on the driver fender, and camaro lettering on my driver taillight. I love this car to death.

Hello Zach, I'm Cj and I'm also addicted to C5.
Here's a pic of the air filter tube when I took it off. I tooked all the oil I could take off and I let the tube stand still for a few days and here's what was left in it. That oil was directed to the TB before. So I installed 2 catch cans. One on each side. The dirty side I get quite a lot of oil but on the clean side, since I have an other can just gets some vaps and the TB is'nt dirty anymore.

I've installed 2 basic cans in wich I added some stainless wire to stuff the inside, i did prolong the incoming tube to the bottom of the can so the fumes will go thrue the wires going out at the top ( I placed a spring I made with a hard wire so the bottom so the wire won't lie in the oil. At that time I was'nt aware about RX or Elite cans and I might change the set up next summer. But so far they seem to do the job. I know SC2150 will tell me to test the cans by adding a oil filter along the outcoming lines, but I just did'nt have the time to do the test. Also I think RX have a model that you can connect both sides on a single can. 2 entries 1 exit. Will look into that later. I took off the breather and replaced it with a regular can since I changed my hood and it did'nt fit. Replaced it by the EOM cap.
