    Waiting for the catch can to ship; that wonít be before early next week at the earliest.

    Still, now that the weather is practically balmy (single digits above zero), I can at least get into the garage and clean/repair everything elseóthat is, once Iím done with my long work weekend...

    Three weeks after ordering, the 42 Draft Designs can and hoses are supposed to arrive next week Tuesday. Slater—out of curiosity—where did you source your 5W heating pad and 0C thermoswitch?

    Oh—and I still have no idea what that can in the back is—I’ll have to trace the hose back to it’s source.

    After looking closer at your picture, that's the bypass valve. It looks like the vacuum line is piped in differently than mine. That's what threw me off.

    Looks like the side cover for the for the DME/ master cylinder box is missing. Did you take that out or did the original owner leave it out? You might want to put that back in since you drive it in winter. It's an F'n bitch to get back in because of the supercharger. I spent many hours cussing at it but it will go back in.

    Yes, the side cover is missing; I broke the original cover removing it to try and access the starter from the top. I have a new one, but have thus far been unsuccessful in shoehorning it into place. What exactly is itís functionóheat shielding for the DME/master cylinder?

    yea, heat shielding and weather protection. I took me a long time to get it in but it will go in eventually. I wish I could tell you some trick to get it back in place but I got nothing...

    In my case, Iím going to ask the dealership to pull the wiper arms so I can move the lower windshield gasket out of the way first. That should give me a little wiggle room.
