Things done since June...

- Armrest delete
- Rebuilt rear calipers
- Catch can received, bracket fabricated
- Silicone hoses ready for installation

Not really a big fabrication job for the bracket, but it was my first time ever making something like it. It's a pretty simple design overall. Started with a SolidWorks model, then drawing:


After cutting, bending, and painting it matte black to match the Radium Engineering catch can:

Can you please explain the purpose of the catch can? I am somewhat aware of most of the performance mods (and am eager to do something to make my well serviced 325 a little quicker or at least more responsive), but I'm not sure about catch cans.

I figure here is as good as any place to find solid info.

Cheers

Catch can replaces the factory CCV system. It doesnt do much for performance but makes it easier to maintain in a sense that you don't ever have to touch a CCV again.

Thanks for the comment about the wheels. I was uncertain about them recently but now pretty happy about them.

Aside from OEM, does anyone know where to get a recently price front strut bar?

ECS tuning's is a nice price, but with shipping it's $450 landed.
