Thanks Brett

I used the PU air line because I didn't have anything else on hand at the time.
I eventually removed the quick connector and replaced it with a tap/valve fitting.

I works pretty well for a DIY scarp parts job.
I'll probably make a proper large capacity catch can in the not too distant future.

Ha-ha - you and me both! Bought mine for the 350z, but it turned out to be unnecessary for the low boost I'm running there. Different story with Chuck though, so I should really get around to fitting it...

PS: I also built one from PVC pipe at some stage, but never fitted that one either. I guess there's a pattern emerging? :redface:
