    JWilson and Kman's GIO catch can mod

    Hey Gang,

    I just completed Mod as described by JWilson and Kman and am eager to try it out.

    Given the length of hose I used, I find the original drain hose (the one that went from the bottom of catch can to oil pan) is now touching what I think is the intake manifold (is that was it is called?). You know that thing under the fuel rail. I have attached a picture below (I hope).

    Does the intake manifold get hot enough to melt this hose if the hose is touching the manifold?

    I would not worry about it. You should see my getto HD/Lowes catch can. I think you need a catch can and the hose raised to stop most if not all of it.

    I am betting on what ES has to offer will be affordable and nice looking.

    Thanks JWilson,

    I go with this for now until ES comes out with their fix. I thought he said it would be soon. That was two weeks ago.

    No it doesn't get hot.

    So, where does that drain hose go to now or hooked up to?
    And how and what does this mod help?
    Thanks.

    My drain outlet has been relocated just above the lower weld line on the can !

    so in the event of a roll over it still can return oil to the sump and not starve the engine,

    it collects the condensated fumes, and allows you to external drain with out contaminating the oil in the sump .

    Not only does it collect fuel , it also collects water aswell
