Looks like an air/oil separator (ment for an air compressor) in the line from the pcv to the intake. I have one on that line and catch a fair amount of oil.

That is what it looks like to me. I havent seen a drop in it yet. But I really havent driven it hard yet because i dont know the extent of the build and i think the motor was built just a couple of months ago and i doubt hardly any miles have been put on it since. So im taking it easy just in case.

didnt know that would work. i guess ill just do that.


After some phone calls, I did find out the guys last name and that he was an older guy that built the car as his track car. But he wanted more power I guess and traded it in for a Z06 to track instead. LOL

Hustler posted a frontal view of that car in his build thread once when he was discussing ducting, iirc. I have a little catch can inline on my PCV line as well.
