Tried my hardest to keep everything as close to OEM as possible.

I traced the bracket for the Catch can and made this template. Use the Automatic Center punch to get dimples in the steel so you know where to drill and helps the drill bit start the hole.

I had to cut the end of this AN fitting to make it shorter because the area its installed in is very tiny.

I cut up a mouse pad to make a rubber spacer. Will help with vibrations.

This is how I had to tighten the bolt. Since the bracket can’t be installed first because of the lip on the top of the firewall it had to be installed as one piece.

Cap off the back of the Manifold as suggested by mjtaylor .. Thanks man!! And cap off the accordion hose as well.. I cut the end off and put a plug on it, follow the red line .. Ignore the circle around the hosed marked “2” that was for a previous post. Just pay attention to what the arrow is indicating.
