    If you overboost (which you wont in warmer weather) you'll know it as your car will suddenly go into limp mode. Do grab a good catback although a good aftermarket intercooler will help more. Enjoy!

    Trying to understand why the torque app would be reading over 17.4 psi. Today I got 18psi, yesterday 19psi. But not constantly. By intercooler you mean Wagner or custom fmic? What should I do if the car goes into limp mode?

    Forgive me if the following sounds like I'm insulting your intelligence--is your OCC a single- or dual-inlet one? Regardless, are you positive you didn't accidentally swap the inlet and outlet hose connections when connecting your hoses? Yes IIRC I believe the OCC has the inlet labelled but brain farts are possible.
    They were indeed backwards. I went with a YouTube video that did it all wrong. Thanks for the heads up.

    LOL you beat me to it--I thought something seemed odd when I read OP's follow-up post; IIRC one hose goes from the PCV (that's on the top of the engine cover) to the inlet-labelled opening on the OCC, then another hose from the OCC outlet to the intake manifold (which is where the pre-OCC install original hose coming from the PCV routes to).

    Glad to see you found the issue! LOL yeah one can't trust/believe everything that's on YouTube; in fact, I think I did come across one of those incorrect OCC install videos but luckily for me I did some more research and ultimately discovering the correct way to install it.

    Looks much better. It looks cleaner when hooked up backwards, but guess that's just how they designed it. Hows the chip working?

    Works great. Car pulls harder and longer.
    Throttle response is better. This could be due to the hks plugs?? Anyway, loving it so far. Shift points have also changed. I noticed in sport mode, it revs higher before changing gears. I'm actually looking for ward to seeing what the can catches. When I unscrewed the oil cap,I noticed some sludge underneath the cap. I put my finger in the valve cover and removed some sludge as well. Is this normal? I think before next oil change I'll dump a can of seafoam in the crankcase and another in the gas tank.
    I'm thinking of putting my car on the dyno to see what kind of power it's making.

    My OCC has collected a few ounces of liquid so far. Mixture of oil and fuel blow by. Smells terrible. I don't think sludge under the valve cover is normal, unless there was an owner before you that may not have kept up with maintenance. You can actually run Seafoam from the "out" hose on your OCC to the intake manifold. Have a friend hold the idle steady while you let the Seafoam get sucked up through the hose. New plugs usually always make the car feel smoother at idle. I plan on swapping out mine with HKS after I pick up a chip.

    Will this method foul the plugs?
