I wish I could find a double wall tip with the same angle as the bezel but that wouldn't be easy.

Very careful measure and cut well within the lines. Still have plenty of sanding to do in order to make it fit nice and tight. But overall I'm pleased with it even though it's a loose test fit.

I didn't go Holliey Dominator but I did order something from them....their new Attitude Adjuster EVC system. Should be fun to mess around with

The other catch can didn't fit like I thought it would where I wanted it to so I got a different one. This one has -10an ORB fittings, stainless steel media packed baffle, o-ring sealed screw on canister, dipsticks, and -4an drains. The breather filter is a Aeroflow -8an screw on with stainless steel filter media. The one with the -10an fitting was too large of a diameter and would've looked weird on the catch cans. I also got Atomic to custom mount the Lokar pedals I've had laying around forever.

I wish then I'd already be done haha...no I've saved for the last 7 years and semi-professionally detail vehicles on the weekends to fund the truck project. Deployment money helped out a good bit too.

Thank you sir


Wegner Automotive is starting on my custom engraved valve covers. I believe we settled on engraving them and then anodize them so that's subtle and doesn't jump out so much.

Big thank you to Wegner Motorsports for making my dream come true. These valve covers are works of art. The picture doesn't do them justice. The effect the engraving has makes it look like the logo is jumping out at you

The AEM V2 kit , extra nozzle, and filter arrived. I like the intergrated MAP sensor and new style fluid level sensor. The nozzles even have internal check valves so no need for a solenoid. The tank basically takes up the last bit of real estate in the engine bay.

What your thoughts on this?

If you look closely at the after pic you can still see valleys/grooves which will still retain oil. My thought process was that polishing will remove the burrs and turn the "V waves" from grinding into "square waves" creating more surface area while still maintaining the valleys for oil retention. I imagine looking at it mircoscopicly from the side and straight on. The valleys are still there but I "averaged" out the peaks by polishing creating a stronger plateau surface area. If it eats itself then it's my fault.

I am pretty sure that high-end race engines have their crank and rod journals micro-polished. I think as long as you are not changing the cam dimensions, polishing would be a good idea.

I don't have direct experience with this, but that's my thought process.
