    oil catch can location?

    where do you guys mount the catch can at on your camaro or TA? I was going to mount it to the passenger side head but the EGR thing is in the way.

    Yea the egr on the pass head sucks..that's where I wanted to put mine also. I ended up putting mine next to the radiator on the driver side and routed the hoses along the upper rad hose. It works great but with all that length of hoses there's a slight hesitation on start-up...i'm guessing because it takes a sec to build vacuum.

    If you find a better spot lemme know..

    I'll do some checkin. I wasn's sure what hose goes where. The can I have has both the lines coming out of the top so do you know what one goes where?

    Mine has a hose on the top and one on the side. http://www.accmachtech.com/pcvcatchcans.htm The hose on top comes from the pcv side and the side hose goes to the intake.

    The hose hook-ups on your can might not matter...but look in the can to make sure, if there's a filter in it you'll want the hose that's on the pcv to go there.

    You can fab a bracket real easy to fit the "spare" threaded hole on the passenger side of the front of the block. Or AMW sells the brackets...
    This threaded hole is on all LS1's....regardless of model...
