Thanks, very helpful.

Annoyed at myself that I didn't see the Cat Cams gb in time. I would've sprung for the 280/272... now the hunt begins.

For those installing, two things.

Crank case ventilator that comes with kit is longer to reach airbox. The one sent in the kit is for european market, so it does not have the emissions bleeder. Get a heat gone and swap the short tube for the long one.

the throttle body clamps need to be position to NOT INTERFERE with the throttle body actuator linkage system. You will find out if it interferes if you got WOT and your car hesitates as though misfiring

Nope, just you'll get more return/fun from your cash. Unless your rules don't allow it?
