    Congratulations!

    It's a good chance to take a video with a good sound (not with a mobilephone) the stock exhaust and the Borla to hear the difference.

    Can I ask who will install the oil catch can? Are you going to do that yourself? Dealer? Curious as I would want one on my (future) car too, but don't see me installing it myself...

    Dealer will install all the options. Biggest challenge to start with is the front GT grill requiring bumper removal. OIl catch can doesn't seem very complicated according to Mishimoto's online movies but won't do it myself...

    Fully agree and working on it....:headbang:
    - reflectors : FOUND !:clap2:
    - Taillights : I can live with white ones but want the amber turn signals out and have 3 brake lights instead of 2. Caniggia told me he can work this out. let's be patient...:hail:

    Exciting times, UNtamed! You'll love it. I had to drive it around the building for the promo video .. I just wanted to leave and hit the road there and then :D I still had to pay at that point x)

    I love the way it looks, I don't think I really want to change stuff on the outside. Except maybe light up the front gills, if an easy and legal solution can be found. I think it's pretty fine the way it is.

    If the bulbs can't be connected it's not a real issue, what matters is the RED color instead of the ugly amber..but can't imagine it's that complicated to connect them in a way somehow...

    Ok, thanks! Will ask my dealer about it too then. Hope they will be able/willing to install a catch can. Asked a sales guy about it already but as I expected he had never ever in his life heard about such a thing...

    You are getting this one if I'm correct? : http://www.mishimoto.com/ford-mustang-ecoboost-baffled-oil-catch-can-kit-15.html

    I know there are many topics about this, but is there any difference between this can and the UPR dual valve can (http://www.uprproducts.com/mustang-billet-single-valve-catch-can-separator-15-ecoboost.html)?

    Hope you don't mind all these questions :)

    Can't tell you if there are real technical differences between these 2. I'm just making my choice on the experience Mishimoto has in developping racing products. Only thing I can find about the brand are positive remarks !

    The only brand I would consider as well is boomba racing.

    You can find MM's catch can at $ 157 on the internet.

    My sales guy didn't know anything about it neither :doh: but they have at least the right tools and if they follow manual and youtube clip it should not give any probs.

    I'll place an order soon for extra parts, if you need any we can group to save a bit on TPT costs...

    Ok, thanks very much for the info! Not sure what I'm going to do yet... Normally I shouldn't have to add things on a brand new car to keep it "safe". Guess I will have to decide first if this car is going to be a keeper or not. If I'm going to sell it after 4 or 5 years I might not even install a catch can, if I'm going to keep it I then I will. But I have read so much already about all these oil "issues" that I'm thinking to keep the car as long as it is under warranty and then make a switch to a new one. Do you know how long your warranty is? Two years or five years? Because I read in the brochure that 5 years warranty is standard. Thanks!
