    That's probably the funniest thing I've read all day :laughing-rofl: Well all this OCC stuff is coming to me slowly and I'll figure out what I want eventually. I'm kinda on the same page as 135pats in the sense that fluid and gas dynamics are way over my head lol

    This was close to a year ago but I'm fairly certain it was $600 for clutch and flywheel install.

    General slang term tossed around is a OCC even if its a OWS. Some more expensive brands may try marketing as a OWS just to be able to sell $250+ cans that trap oil. A OCC can be as simple a coke can with no special baffling. One of the worlds fastest GTR's (2000+awhp) built by UGR uses a Starbucks 16oz can, when i asked why, they said "thats what i had to drink this morning". Regardless that car doesn't see the miles ours does. Look into the internals of them before purchasing. Most ebay ones are just hollow cans.

    I'm still going to wait to see the specs on the AD Engineering OCC, I'm interested in what he's going to make since it's specifically for his fittings. Also is there any benefits of running an OCC vs an OWS?

    Never mind terry I thought his was Andy. I've seen your internals. Just a little undersized for the high HP motors.

    I would run -10AN and just keep everything the same so you dont have to use reducers etc. Like i said, ignore my sizes, i ordered that a year ago for my own project.

    My think the AD firings are perfect for any application that will be adding vaccum. If you want to run straight VTA I would go bigger like you said to a pair of 3/4 with a breather cap size outlet.

    Your reading that right. The set up i was running (had to rob parts off it and have been to busy to even do an oil change) uses 2 different vacuum sources pulling from the "on boost" port of the VC and the manifold intake ports blocked off. Depending on which vacuum source is greater at a given time it pulls from that source. The vacuum and flow characteristics are metered and similar to stock with the addition of the lines and catch can. I still need to measure vacuum, i was going more for oil separation functionality than vacuum (fbo car) I plan on expanding and refining the system when the ST goes in and ill do some testing. Just my own method of doing it i guess

    So do you need the inlets and outlets to be bigger than the ones for the AD fittings?

    I already contacted them. I am going 3/4" barbs if I get the can. I personally do not need AN fittings for a PCV system, I am more a go, over show kind of guy. I do AN for fuel system etc, but not usually stuff like PCV etc. I will just do two ins, and one out. I am a little confused as to why you did one in and two out, unless I am reading your drawing wrong?. We have two sources of CC gases, one from the actually PCV valve where AD vent -8, and one from the flapper. Both should be run into the can, then a single out back to the intake.

    I dont by any means think there is a restriction with AD's dual -10an. There is an infinite amount of configs. You can have dual -10an inlets with a single -12 outlet. Tell them what you want and they brew up something, they'll even tell you what will and wont work. Heres and example of what they'll send before they start making it just to be 100% sure its what you want. NOTE: Dont copy my size fittings. I had this made a year ago to suit my current set up. I would go larger if you have AD fittings

    Offset Motorwerks in Glendora has done a bunch of clutch installs on N54's and quoted me the best price on installing my spec 3+. Or I'm sure fastgti69 can get you taken care of and is a shorter drive then offset.

    Try hitting up fastgti69 at Ventura Motorsports. He may be able to help, not sure though worth reaching out to him.

    I have pretty much the same problem though :rolleyes: Hopping I'll be able to figure something out for better flow with AN fittings, but if not then Andy's fittings are always still an option.

    It's still a little too early in the year to tell but the M9 or the Sony Xperia Z4 look very promising. Assuming you're still considering the phone route I've had an M8 for the last year and a half and I love it because of how easy it is to work with and root. The Sony is also a very feature packed phone that looks pretty impressive. The only way to really tell is just by playing with each one tbh

    I would suggest the OnePlus one. Flagship specs (well, 2014 at least), for cheap prices OFF CONTRACT. You can get a 64gb for $349. The kicker is you can only buy them on Tuesdays (they used to be invite only). https://oneplus.net/ For what it's worth, MKBHD raves about this phone and it would have been the phone I purchased had my invite come 2 weeks sooner. I ended up with the '14 MotoX after a few iPhones. I really am enjoying the change. I don't like comparing iPhone to Android, they're both great phones, but I am the type of person who needs a change every so often.

    Honestly don't let it. I'm just always the person that if its worth doing its worth over doing, and I also never like going smaller than the factory on something where good flow is critical. The AD fittings will be fine, I just prefer to go 3/4" for maximum venting

    I want to get Andy's fittings but every time I hear you say this it makes me hesitant lol Is there any other options you can think of that would offer bigger AN fittings for those of us who want to go that route or are we just condemned to -10 and -8?

    So today I finally received my Motiv clutch kit(which looks very high quality), but since I don't have a lift to do the clutch job with I need to get a reliable shop somewhere around the Ventura County area. I'm willing to drive pretty much anywhere within reason I just don't want to pay a ridiculous price for the labor/have the job done incorrectly, so does anyone who lives out here have a trustworthy shop they know of? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Quick update for the thread. 1: Got the silicone intakes, but haven't had time to install. Going to really push to get that done this week or next and proceed. Bren already gave me a "basemap-ish" tune which basically backs off on the wgdc. I just gotta get it done. 2: Having fun with steering angle sensor issues, which I'm slowly nailing down. Ugh. It does mean that I've been driving around with no traction or stability control. Throttle modulation is key, lol. 3: I now have 3000 miles on the VTT 2+'s. These were 3000 HARD miles, 20+ map revisions, over 100 pulls from 2500 rpm to at least 7000rpm, usually 7200rpm. Quite a few pulls approaching 600 wtq. I did an oil change at 3000 miles and got a blackstone analysis. I was curious how she was holding up and if the post throttle body injection would put any fuel in the oil on an older/high mileage engine. Looks good! Oh, and I know that I don't *have* to change the oil at 3000 miles. I don't care, the car is not driven gently and I try to be aggressive with maintenance.

    bawareca replied to a thread DME Swap in N54
    Just did a swap of an 08 535i last week. The original DME was throwing crank sensor code randomly, 1-2 times a day. After 2 sensors and torough investigation of the wiring we figured it was the DME. It runs trouble free now with used DME. So, briefly, yes, I can do that.

    I agree the baffle on the BMS is a little light, but as Terry says, its for good flow, I will prob run a custom can from the guys you suggested with 3/4" barbs for inlets and outlets. None of this -10, -8 stuff, too small.
