Works pretty good. The rubber pieces come with the FMS kit. I cut my original plastic splitter and those wings are made of thin sheet metal I riveted onto the plastic part. I picked the sheet metal up at lowes and cut it with tin snips. Drilled a hole in the sheet metal, layed it on the plastic over the cut out sections and drilled a hole through the plastic and popped rivets in there. Then I cut those rubber pieces to the right length and stock them on so it touches and seals to the top of the sides of the intercooler. I left the front open wider as well instead of going all the way back to the intercooler so air can actually pass all the way around the front of the intercooler but most gets funneled through it.
Here's an earlier picture showing it a little better. I can take close ups of the fitup if you want.

This is the catch can I bought. They come in just about any color you want if you search oul catch can in ebay.
Youll need some plastic piping that you can fit between the catch can and your inlet hoses. Preferably clear. We also put some loofah material in the catch can for filtration.
Cant beat 30 bucks for 2 of em and a few bucks for clear piping.
Nate did a write up a few months ago on his journal and I included a bit in mine.

|Quick Finger||Hey guys where did you get them from? I think Id like to order some up...I think I remember reading ebay? what all is needed?|
|12-04-2013 01:26 PM|
|Superacerc||My thoughts as well. Who wants to pay 300 dollars to let that back through?|
|12-04-2013 12:00 PM|
|nate_fisher||This is also why i opted not to get the aos as it would let that stuff back into the pan.|

|Superacerc||Yes sir. I like it as well. I put all clear lines except for 1 (ran out of clear) and it's nice to see what's going through them. That stuff is pretty nasty looking. Glad it's getting sucked clear of the engine and not going through the intake. Creeps me out that that kind of stuff gets in there.|

|nate_fisher||Yes the cold weather gives you the snot looking stuff which is just moisture mixed with the oil and gas vapors. I put a clear line on the return so i can see whats going back in and so far over a year with zero coming back the return lines. It was def worth the $35 i spent on them lol.|

|Quick Finger||^^^Yes those bags are magic. A friend of mine on the Atlantic side. Uses a bag mix of ceramic, cork, and those gelitine packs. He almost never seems to have ice or fog build up inside the car its craazy|

|Superacerc||Im oceanfeont so thatight be adding to it. Ive seen some dry hanging car bags I might try to absorb moisture in the car.|

I don't find it very often only sometimes. However I do (fairly consistently) wipe the inside of my windshield with alch/meth wipes.
Also you might be seeing more of it considering you are ocean front. I found when I lived on Vancouver island that it happened more often compared to here.

The pcv and head vent line are worth removing every now and then to blow that snotty stuff out. I think since my engine was new it was clean when I first put the cans on but now that its repeatedly going from 8 degree F mornings to full heat running, water is condensing and freezing in the engine area and then getting yucky and blowing out the vent.
Ben do you get freezing moisture inside you car? Ive found that while defrosting my windows in the morning I have to wipe off the inside of the windshield of ice and water droplets.

Good to hear they are doing something for the engine. I want to make up a set for my car. When I took my inlet off and intercooler it had some oil on in it and the turbo - intercooler connection had a very light bit of oil in it too.
PS you have your perrin sticker in the exact same spot as I put mine haha. I agree no advertising on the outside unless the company is sponsoring me.
