Failed ccv. Didn't want to replace with something that would break again. Catches the crap and moisture instead of putting it in the pan. Vacuum is also much higher so it's like NA boost

Even better. Look up e92 carbon build up. Oil blow by gets into the intake manifold and becomes a massive problem. Catch can fixes

Hey I have the same OBDII display as you and in practically the same spot (on my left vent). Where did you get your mount from? I am using this one but it blocks a lot of the airflow:

Its just the horizontal mount on their website. Pulled out the AC vent and ran the cord under to wear it pops out and plugs in down below.

I'm in love with your Diffuser! Thinking about copying you and making one with some sheet metal or something similar Just don't know how it'll look on M-Tech I rear bumper.

Lol thanks. Yeah Josh was the best option. You may want to check under the bumper to see if there are mounting screws like there are on the M Tech II. Josh's are great quality. Clean welds and bends. Great metal.

It does have mounting holes with some push rivets holding it on.
Do you possibly have a link?

Looks good.

Whats the purpose of putting the car in neutral and pulling the parking brake, instead of putting the car in park?
