Mustang Catch Can Install

Posted on the June 21st, 2009 under mustang by

I was having some issues with some oil getting back into the intake via the PCV valve so I descided to add a catch can.  The catch can’s job is to do just what it says, catch junk that may pass through the PCV before the air is recycled back into your intake.    I grabbed a crappy can off eBay and modified it to fit my needs.  The first thing I did was disassemble the unit, it was put together like crap.   I re-threaded and sealed all the connections and tested it to hold pressure.    I also dilled out a few of the connections to support more air volume.

This pic is after I drilled it out, the holes before were 1/2 the size.

Drilled out the holes to allow more airflow

Everything re-sealed and ready to go…

All the parts taped ready for install

The clear tube so you can see how full the can is.

Mustang Wiring Mess

Posted on the May 29th, 2009 under mustang by

The last week I was able to work on the mustang a little bit.  I was trying to figure out what these extra wires were that I found when I was re-wiring some of the burnt wires under the engine bay.  I noticed two wires with clips on the end and I had no idea what they were for.  They didn’t look stock, so I descided to start tracing them back.

The wires I found:



I traced them back through the firewall, then they ran down near the drivers side of the car under the carpet.  The big red Zero guage wire is the battery wire thats located in the trunk.  I also found some other smaller red wires that ran from the fuse box to the back as well.   I could not for the life of me figure out what these wires were.  I continued to trace these back under the rear seat to the trunk…

IMG_9217Once I got to the trunk I found a ton more of the wire, then found out that all of this wire was going to a box which controlled some type of high voltage lighting.  Once of the previous owners must have been a volunteer fireman.  I pulled out the box, and all of the wires, it must have weight at least 25lbs all together.

Hopefully over the this week I’ll be able to see if the changes I made fixed my issues…
