    Does anyone know if they will be making a drivers side one for the regular GT?

    Today was a beautiful day out so I pulled both of the tops off my ford oil catch cans on my GT350. To remove the top you need a 4mm Allen wrench. It's a very easy process. When I remove the hose from the driver side can that goes to the intake tube I noticed the green o-ring was split and the yellow o-ring had a knick on it. Luckily I still had the stock breather line that I stole both o-rings from. Easy fix. But just to let you all know, the green o-ring goes in first then their is a black plastic ring that separates both o-rings.

    I have my passenger side catch can and in trying to install it I can't figure out how to remove the push pin holding down the electrical wire at the corner of the valve cover. Any pointers?

    Either use a interior panel fork. It's like a screwdriver with a forked end or just gently pull it up with the fingers. That's what I did.

    Another pointer is install the corrugated tube opposite of what the instructions tell you.

    Mine does sit kind of weird. Reversing it looks like it fits better.

    Do you have the driver side? That's easy to install also.

    Yea I have it on. Pretty simple installs. The drivers side required some cutting of that thermal shield but I decided not to cut it and have it bolted down on the intake and the push pin under the strut bar. Sits fine.

    I used a longer push pin and wonder why ford performance didn't include the longer push pin because I didn't want to cut the shield

    Call me an idiot, but on the passenger side one again, how do you move the big vertical electrical bundle out of the way so you can even get the separator to where it's supposed to attach?

    I didn't have to move the large harness. Mine fit good without touching it.

    Just the one so far. My vendor didn't have the -A50S on hand yet so I need to just order it from somebody.

    It was definitely a needed mod. The stock hose is coated inside with oil.

    The driver said is easy to install. When you get one "DO NOT" cut the insulation mat. I didn't use the included push pin, I used one that's about 1/4" longer. Their are 3 mounting points, one that uses the CAI mounting stud, one beneath the strut tower brace on the tower itself and another on the strut tower that needs the longer push pin I mentioned.
