I'm new to the site but only thing I have so far is the cai and black emblems. Everything else is what I plan to get eventually. I'm in the military over seas right now, so I'm just looking for ideas and opinions on what mods I should start with.

Catch Can
MRT V2.0 exhaust
CAI Intake with apex relocation kit
VMAX ported throttle body
SOLO highflow cats (In future)

This is the order i went so far

Since you also have the LFX engine, we don't have much upgrade options yet.

I bet someone will add more to the list

Exterior:
You have lot of options. You can even play with plasti dipping.
Check our exterior sub section for more options

I'm really thinking about going with the solo HFC and TB first for the performance and work on the rest of the mods after.

Wheels and suspension have ALWAYS been my first mods. That's what I've done for years. After you do that, then start adding on some cosmetic stuff mixed in with some performance items.

So in regards to the catch can what do the $200 ones do that the $50 ones can't? As for upgrades CAI and MRT 2.0 is never a bad idea.

You get what you pay for, I'm not going to start a b**ch fest on here about it. I have an RX it works great for me and I'm glad I paid what I did for it. I guess any catch can is better than none.

Basically the whole idea of you get what you pay for. The more expensive ones have a better design and catch more oil as a result. I have the elite one and love it. Great build quality and an awesome draining design.

The cheaper cans do not contain the required elements to catch all of the oil. They will still catch some, but not all. The only catch can's I would recommend are the Elite Engineering or RX catch can.

The "Catch Can" Explained!

The $200 catch cans actually work. $50 catch can are going to be little more than an empty can with two fittings. They will collect a small amount of oil and make you feel all warm and fuzzy but the majority of the oil vapor will pass right through and end up where you do not want it. The pricier cans should incorporate some sort of baffling system to slow down, condense, and collect the oil for removal. Elite Engineering and RX have both been mentioned already I would second those recommendations.

Check the sponsor forms here, I think they are going for $850 or a little more bundled.
