ST200, More power incoming :D
Looking awesome as always m8.
Would you say the catch can is a worthwhile investment?
Not sure I see this type of modification (or any type of car modification tbh) as an investment but this one is more as a preventative measure. My car's now done 57k miles so no doubt they'll already be carbon build up on top of the valves, if the catch can can help slow down further build up I'll be happy.Would you say the catch can is a worthwhile investment?
There is a drain port on the bottom or you can simply unscrew the main body of the catch can.With the catch can, how do you drain it? Is there a drain port below, or do you need to unbolt the entire can each time?
I think it's the top hose (the one above the coolant level) which is brittle on the older cars hence the coolant recall, mine has the flexible hoses and didn't need the recall done but yes that hose touching the catch can wasn't good, I went back out yesterday and pulled through another inch or so of the hose:Secondly, do be careful with that coolant line. They are extremely brittle, especially over
time and were changed in the revised coolant system, to a much thicker line.
then loosened the hose clamp and gave the hose an 1/8th of a turn which positioned it nicely away from the catch can:
I'll be still keeping an eye on it though.
Yep I agree, well the way I drive the car maybe a new aftermarket radiator might be a bit overkill but a new expansion tank which are known to crack and leak with age and also new hoses would be a good idea.In fact, maybe it's a good project to update the coolant system to the new style, if you're planning on keeping the car.
I have thought about an uprated radiator, the airtec unit is fairly priced compared to Pro Alloys so I'm looking forward to how your brother get's on with his , has he had it fitted yet?
I agreeThe Vudu can looks like a really nice piece of kit though. I'm tempted.
I'm fitting my Vudu catch can today (you prompted me to get one!).
Does yours sit at a slight angle on the engine mount bracket? The bottom angles towards the alternator pulley, though clears it by half a centimetre or so.
I'm not sure if that's correct, it seems a bit wonky being at an angle, but also seems to fit correctly, so I don't know.
I did a test empty and just about managed to get it out. That was before I realised the front pipe would be exactly in the place where my hand would be... So it seems like a headlight out job to empty
