Default Mounted an oil catch can.

I had an Mpx oil catch can laying around from my old SRT-4 and wanted to put it to use. Little space under the hood of the PT so I bought a little bracket from the hardware store, bent it up, and found the perfect spot to mount it, right on my strut tower. Figured I'd post this in the chance it might help someone else.

The catch can was from Modern Performance.

Also had a Boomba 1-way check valve I threw in line with it. Only annoying part is having to run like 5ft of hose from the pcv valve to the catch then to the intake mani but that's what zip ties are for. The Mpx catch can is pretty deep (like 8"?) but i paid good money for it so i hated to see it just laying around.

I really like where you mounted that can. I want to mount one on both the suction and vent sides. And that looks like a good location for the vent can.

PS: First, I've got to dig up the cash for an intake similar to yours. Mine will like be an AirRaid. But I've been holding off due to the price.

Just a suggestion, you may want to run the valve closer to the intake and double check the size hose clamps you are using. They may be cause the hose to change shape and to not seal well under boost.

I also see an Interstate battery with the shelf date showing. You may want to load test before the summer temperatures start coming around?
