Mike Norris Catch can install

So, I pulled my RX catch can in favor of a Mike Norris can (got a good deal on a white painted one) I went a different route on the location....but I think it looks good.

LOL Someday I'll tell you the story of HOW I screwed up a rear spoiler install :( If I need it done I go to the Dealership. If they won't do it I don't have it on my car LOL

No, I haven't seen any like that, that's why I did it and put pics to see if it will be ok, and I sent a message to mike Norris to see.

Hmmm... I'd think it should be vertical so during condensation, the crud gapps down into the collection can. Looks pretty cool though!

Maybe not, might have to move it, but I figure the oil would sit in the bottom and be fine, as the can never comes close to filling. I'll just move it if that's what Mike says to do.

It will probably work fine until it becomes half way full. Then (I think) it will be like blowing bubbles through a straw into a thick chocolate shake. This will put back pressure on the flow. That will probably be bad.

If someone can post a cutaway pic of the internals of a Mike Norris can we can provide a better answer.

My gut reaction is to put it vertical.

That's what I was thinking, so I would just ensure to empty every 1000 miles, I sent him a message so I'll see where I'm at.

it all depends on the internal design.

Ask Mike Norris directly if this is a supported configuration. If not, you should go vertical.

I think it's gonna have to go vertical though, and I'll need the additional bracket.
