I found them on IWSTI I think, they make a really nice looking product. I'm rather excited.

I intend on using this routing and plumbing for the set up. https://sites.google.com/site/litesp...byinstall/home

Should work out well.

Thanks for the link to the install. I may be selling my Crawford and opting for one of these instead.
Much appreciated.

Whats the purpose you went with a lesser known company for a catch can? im in the market for one as well and am curious on your decision.

Well Saikou Michi is lesser known their products have a really good reputation and they look really nice. They come with a bracket pre set up for a WRX/STI. A dual catch can set up is preferable to an AOS for my application, and I think in general. Also, you can basically get them made how you want. Yes, it does take a bit more work because I'll have to source hoses and stuff. But I think it's worth it, also the price was really good. I got them raw and saved a bit since I'll be getting em coated the same color as my intercooler piping, so the price was really solid.

It's basically the same as the Moroso cans for like 1/2 the price.

Awesome, i was considering the moroso cans.

I dont mind sourcing hoses and such as that allows getting higher quality that will last longer and or look better. Will have to def look into them further.

I think it's more having them more or less made for Subarus with the brackets, also Saikou Michi was awesome in communication on getting the parts made. price is far better than the Moroso. So that definitely helps.

I get them today and I'll snap some pics this weekend.

In for pictures of your catch can setup. What's your take on this setup best?
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-300105/overview/. Obviously there are some parts we don't need in the kit but not a bad price though.

They're going to get powder in a few days and get installed. Unfortunately I have another issue I'm dealing with right now that needs my attention. Turbo is eating oil.

Not in it's current state, I can get one for you. It needs to have the false floor built and some other stuff done.

It's an easy install.

Yea, bigger. Not 100% yet, rotated for sure.

It's really easy, just take your time.

As far as elevel, I'm not 100% sure how that goes. But I've talked to people and they didn't think it was that hard.

Lol well that's reassuring is all the wiring like plug and play stuff? I honestly know that's my weakest knowledge area! I don't even tap fuses or anything like that so....

That's part of it. The other part is spool and tracts. The rotated set ups have a higher ceiling and have a quicker spool to boot in some cases. Not to mention looks 100x better.

PTE, likely a 5558 and if that one is sold possibly a new 5858.

in for new turbo! also in for seeing the trunk/tank setup as i've decided to go air as well on the sedan..

as far as your psi based system, how do you like it? do you notice a difference in effective spring rate with the rear pressures at different levels (i think?). trying to decide between that and elevel but always in for other points of view

I'll take some pics on my phone tomorrow.

I like the v2 system, a lot actually. eLevel is nice, I love the idea of it. But really it's all in preference and cost. Once you have a v2 and you start using it it's soooo simple. I never ever carry anything heavy in my car. Nothing more than a regular suspension would handle. It does a great job.
