    Just looking to see if those of you running catch can/breather setups can post pics of locations where you have yours mounted? Just trying to get some ideas. Thanks in advance.

    Im strapped for space with a 5.4l hogging it all, but I used an air line moisture catch "can" from any hardware store. Its small capacity, but works great, just empty it more. However, I did machine the nipples to accept 3/8 hose

    Put mine on the pass side firewall. I once had a little issue as you can clearly see. All good now but I still left the can there anyways. This is a cheap one off Ebay. They come in many colors.

    I actually already have this UPR breather tank:

    http://www.uprproducts.com/billet-breather-tank.html

    It's pretty large, and 03DSGGT has helped me a bunch in the past with his write-ups on putting it behind the reinforcement bar, but this thing is pretty large and if I can't put it in the existing area where my driver side coil pack is now than I may have to try to find somewhere under one of the fenders

    Your UPR piece looks to be about the same size as my Moroso can, and if I remember correctly mine is about 11" with the breather installed.

    That should fit nicely in the fender area if you don't have anything in that area already

    I have a moroso bolted to the passenger side strut tower, but mine is a 5.o. Dont know if the mod motors have much room left in that area. Only drawback is when I empty it, I have to unclamp it from the bracket (1 bolt) or else it would run down on the headers.

    My 95 with a 5.0 is mounted to "framerail" under the intake. Puts the catch can drain in an open spot near the radiator drain.
