Hello Camaro 5 I bought my car back in 2011 with 14 miles on it . This is my first new car and 1st car with a manual transmission . I was on my way to buy a h3 hummer when I stopped at the Chevy dealership and saw what would be my first Camaro . I had been back and forth between the Camaro and h3 for months . I test drove it worked out a deal and a couple hrs later it was all mine

I first like to thank my lovely wife for putting up with my obsession and for always getting me Camaro goodies for Xmas . Chris at full blast Peformance . And my friends for helping me install my Ipf superchager , and of corse camaro5 for all the great advice and help

Mighty Mouse PVC catch can installed

Installed my Mighty Mouse PVC catch can to replace the one that came with the Ipf kit not to take anything from Ipf great kit awsome power, but I had sum stalling issues and my afr just wasn't right with the old can set up. I went to a metal shop and had them make a bracket for $6 bucks painted it matte black with sum high temp paint I had .

--THE SET UP--
mmcc integrated PVC line to the top of the intake mainfold . Clean side going to other inlet on can and dirty side to superchager intake port. With the Ipf set up the top of the intake mainfold is plugged .

--THE DIFFRENCE --
Car accelerates alot better I feel . My afr is right on about 14.7 while crushing and about 12.8 at WOT. When I get on it car feels smooth instead of hesitant .
The look of the M.M.C.C looks good in the engine bay instead of hidden behind the fender .
