This is a wildly successful thread on another forum I'm on, so I thought I might as well start it here.

Today I traced down a loud squeling coming from the engine that I determined was a result of a cheap belt. I determined it was the belt by spraying the grooves of the belt with WD40 while the engine was running. If the squeling is the belt, the sqeeling will stop when you spray it.

Next I found a location to install my catch can. To do so I had to cut two bolts and trim the head of one of them. For those that have removed your stock CAI, there is a bracket just waiting to be put to work.

Here's some photos for the hell of it. I know it's not the prettiest thing you've ever seen, but it functions nicely. :)

Man I'm glad you got it figured.All I did was look at it while it was under the carport when I went to work.Until I figure out a way to keep water out of the Venom hood vents,it will stay parked in the rain =(.Catch can looks good,but why not on the driver side of the head/block?

I washed mine today, after getting rained out at the track Friday, it was all covered in refinery soot from the drive home past a bunch of gas & oil plants in the rain.

Changed my front diff, rear diff, and tc fluids. Emptied and cleaned the catch can. Cleaned and reoiled my air filter. Quick detail of the engine bay. Washed the rig, polised the borla tips, and took it to my favorite spot and snapped some pictures. I think I spent more time with the jeep then I did with Stacy!!! :eek: LOL

Hehehe - get ready for all that to change once you get married, my friend! :p:lol: Great choice on the wedding band, BTW.

As for the Jeep, I let mine sunbathe while I sat on my ass all day yesterday and watched football...

Scared the hell out of an old lady in traffic when I pulled up next to her at a red light and then floored it when it turned green with my cutouts full open.

Don't have cutouts, but still loud enough to scare a beagle puppy that was walking with a young girl. It jumped in the air :D

Only other thing I did today was wipe brake dust off the rims. That's a daily ritual though.
