I have a COBB AP. The catless DP's and new charge pipe/BOV on the way.

All of that effort, and my OCC has trapped maybe 30 mL (being generous.. seriously just a few drops) of oil in the 6 months it's been on. What a waste.
Yeah, that was a bitch. I'm pretty tall and its still a pain to lean all the way back to get at that thing. The hoses were infuriating. I hope the neighbors couldn't hear me screaming obscenities in the garage.
