Some changes to my LLT engine bay

1- Moved my Catch Can
2- Replaced my chrome RX breather with a CGM breather
3- Replaced mt chrome CAI with a black CAI.
4- Cleaned and polished
5- More to come.

Just looking for a clean, simple but yet unique engine bay.

Very nice! Where did you get that strut tower brace, and is the difference in handling noticeable?

thanks!

Got the strut from Maureen at Rodgers, price can't be beat. And I definitely noticed more stability in the front end after installation.

Adams APC and Adams metal polish # 1 & 2. The APC is good ( i'd say above avg.) but I love their metal polish, just great.

This pad was bright yellow (brand new) before polishing the strut bar, here is what it looks like now.





And thanks!

I thought of going that route but keeping things polished is such hard work, not sure i could do it. I'm working on a simple, clean cover mod.

Great work man, looks really good - PM me with the price you paid for the brace if you don't mind. Also, do you have any "before" pictures of where you had your catch can? Lastly, can I see your catch can install without the engine cover on?

Sorry for all the requests, you're just doing things I'm really interested in!

Here are a couple of pics of where I had it before, but as I said in the other post don't mount it here as it may strip eventually the bolt. I'll get some pictures later when the sun comes up of it with the cover off.

Here are some pics with the engine cover off as requested. I did move one of the hoses to neaten it up a bit. Sorry if they are a bit blurry, from my iPhone and a bit cloudy out. But you can get the idea.

Nice usage of zip ties and the whole thing looks real clean. It looks kinda factory but in a good way vs. a boring uninteresting way. Nice job.
