PCV won't have an effect on the engine vacuum provided you've sealed off the line under the TB.

Downfall to vented catch cans is the layer of oil that covers the engine bay at all times. Really sucks cleaning all the time

Or into a can with a filter... Or like I've done in the past; a Gatorade bottle.

yea it is threaded 3/8" NPT on each side. Thinking just a couple 90s with hose barb on the end. I wanted to mount it above the pitch mount but not sure it'll fit after looking in the engine bay.

Hey thanks Layvon.

Another question for you drag racers out there...

So I am ordering a Clutch Masters FX400 4 puck with hirev pressure plate after Junior suggested it.

My question is what are your thoughts on the lightweight flywheels? I have been reading a few threads and it seems like 99% of the guys who are running a lightweight flywheel seem to say they are difficult to launch? However I have been told that some of these aggressive clutches have release issues due to the heat from a good launch and don't like to release off the stock steel flywheel.

Right now I can launch the car consistently every single time, never bog, never have a problem and I really don't want to get away from that.

Thoughts?

I ran a 14lb. flywheel in my last iteration on the wrx 5-speed and I have a 12lb. FW on the STi but the STi hasn't been on the road yet. I loved the 14lb'er in the WRX though.

Put the new wheels/tires on today...not the best fitment but should be good for traction.

Might be a stupid question but are all 04-07 STi flywheels considered a single mass flywheel?

Other way around if I'm not mistaken all STi's are dual mass clutches.

From my understanding all 04-07 and probably newer STi's are all single mass flywheels. The older WRXs before 2006 used a dual mass flywheel.

I picked up a sti flywheel years ago just so I would have an extra one to resurface prior to tearing mine apart but to this day have never done a clutch on an STi. Anyways I ordered a clutch today which specified the use of a single mass flywheel and wanted to double check that is what I have. From what I can tell this is a factory STi flywheel...

So I am going to weld in the new bung for my GM IAT sensor and curious about where you guys recommend placement. I know you want it as close to the throttle body as possible but I am wondering if it is on the turbo side of the intercooler pipe that the sensor might suffer some kind of heat soak? Here is a picture for reference, I might be able to squeeze it into the inside bend of the pipe but does it matter if the sensor is on a radius like that?

Do you retain a functional hood scoop? If so, would it be blowing on it?

It appears that it would be right where the hood scoop pushes air onto, suggesting that it will push air back from the IAT sensor. It is of my opinion you'd be fine.

Edit - I saw the picture on post 9. I think that would be right where the old intercooler would be so I think you'd be good to go.

Also - Did your car require any special ramps to get onto that trailer with out bottoming out? I'm hauling my car to P&L next week and want to make sure to think ahead.
