    No aftermarket fuel cell here but I believe 98s don't have the bucket that the 99 to 02 years have. Eventually I will be running two of these and aftermarket lines with an external regulator in case I ever want add on FI.

    These were a bitch to assemble due to the really tight fit.



    I ordered my FTP 104 lid today too.

    I had issues with poly mounts getting the bolts back in the block on the driver side -- an extra set of hands and a large wrecking bar (or, as we often said in our race car days, the "proper application of force in the correct vector") is what it took to get them in.

    I should have been more specific I was referring to the lower a-arms onto the k-member.

    I didn't have any issues removing mine. Front or back bolts?

    It was installing the rod ends into my road race kmember that was really tight and lining the holes up with the slots on the kmember so I could get the bolts through. Once I did then it was easy but since the rod ends allow a lot of movement it was a tad difficult to get it lined up perfectly.

    So going back to my PVC setup this is my idea:

    I will be running two catch cans and a ls6 with the integrated PVC in it. I will be running an oil cap with a AN fitting on it and I will run that to the first catch can and then put a AN fitting on my TB and run the line from the first catch can to that as well. Next I will either remove the tube from the valley tray cover or run a quick disconnect adapter AN fitting on it and run it to the second catch can and then run another line to my FAST. I want all lines 4G be the same so they need to be either -10 or -6. I can only do -10 if I can figure out how to get the tube for the valley tray off, as I want a clean install instead of tapping a hole somewhere else and capping the tube off. I can run stainless steel lines then.

    Thoughts?

    Overkill? Even with my crappy stock PCV system, after a hard weekend at the track our catch can usually has less than an ounce of oil in it.

    Maybe but with my compression and stroker build I would rather be safe than sorry plus it will look awesome lol.

    Waaaaay too much work for such little value. Run two -10 lines from your valve covers to ONE can....done. It's what I did....until I added the vacuum pump.
    They said it wouldnt fit in an fbody....

    Not really concerned with the amount of work but I want to ensure no oil gets back into the intake or very minimal. I did get the valley tube off so now I need to find either a push fit fitting or get a tap for threads.

    Thinking about getting a larger oil pan with more capacity and I was looking at the GMPP circle track one and the Kevko racing one. I was wondering if anyone has used either of these or a similar pan and if they fit well on a Fbody as well as if there are any fitment issues. I have the UMI road race kmember so I may not have any fitment issues at all because of that.

    The kevko one is 6.5" deep and the GMPP one is 7" deep. The stock one is 5" deep. That doesn't sound like much of a difference or that it would matter much.

    Honestly I sort of forgot about them. I'll have to look into that as well.

    Dropped off my 335s to get mounted on my wheels today. Apparently the tire shop thinks it may break their machine....? They said they would try though.
