what is the Elite Engineering part number that you used? The mounting bracket on the block- is it very close to the serpentine belt at the bottom?

I have to dig up the receipt. I ordered the E2 model for the 2011+ Camaro V6 LFX on there website. The bracket that came with it which is for the camaro, attach under the posts that hold the engine cover in place. The Caprice doesn't have an engine cover/sight shield so I just emailed them that the bracket doesnt work and they sent me a couple different ones to try for no charge. The one I used and I think works best is the 62L bracket.
No its not close to the belt at all it's just the angle of the picture being taken from above..

Hi...

I ordered everything yesterday and one of my techs mentioned that I'd need to be careful with freezing and how that can clog the breather system and cause seal damage with the pressures that can build in the engine. Were you aware of this or have you read anything about this particular system that kept you from worrying about that?

Thanks for the post!

How did you know the inlet/outlet? It's not on any of the paperwork or the can and the installation manual is for an older version with different attachment locations. :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:
