I have been looking for a place to mount the catch can and I think I have found a spot. On the front of the drivers side head there is a threaded hole just above the power steering pump that is not being used for anyting. I am wanting to rig up a mount using this hole but I have not had any luck determining the thread size for this. Anyone know what it is? I do not have a camera right now but if needed I can take a picture of the location when I get home. Thanks.

Thats actually a good idea. The spot I have mine is not ideal. You want it away from heat as much as possible.

Best I can tell the opening is threaded metric at 7 x .75 I have been to several nut and bolt wholesalers here in Houston and none have this size bolt. I think I may mount this on the fan shroud close to the radiator cap at least until I am able to find this thread or decide to re-tap the opening in in the head.
