Felpro intake manifold gasket set:

Set of eight copper core champions:

Summit Racing 8mm wires

Accell heavy duty stainless rotor

Set of four 5 1/8" air hat gaskets

Felpro valve cover gaskets

And two blank keys for a Dodge Viper

As soon as I have a whole weekend to myself, all this stuff, an M1, Mopar Performance VCs, an AC delete bracket (that I'm making myself from a JY unit), a new thermostat, the two a-pillar gauges and pod, and the custom VIC switchpanel/ ammeter are going in all at once.
I have that same catch can. Either its not very effective or I have very little blow by. Last oil change barely a drop came out. I'd recommend using a better hose than what it comes with when you get it.

Any cheap, hollow can will do basically nothing. I took one and stuffed it with a few copper scrubber pads to act as baffles. Doing that dramatically increased the amount of stuff it catches. Others have reported that adding baffling to a cheap can makes it nearly as effective as a nicer, properly baffled can.

I picked that can because its totally hollow and comes apart (according to another member), so I can put my own baffling in. I know an empty can is useless.

Ah ok....I was under the impression it already had something in it. On my old mustang the can had baffling in it so I just assumed, then again that can was more expensive. Lol learned something new today.

put 17 gallons into the tank. Couldn't help but feel happy I only have a 23 gallon tank in the jeep. The truck has a 30 gallon, and oh boy does that extra 7 gallons make a difference to the wallet

Well since it snowed like a banshee for 10 hourd straight so far and still going, while driving to and from school power slid every corner and spun the tires at every light since my city doesnt believe in plowing or salt. Espically salt since they ran out and arent getting any more.

Got the gauges installed. Water temp reads perfect now. The factory one was reading 20 warmer. Very unsettling. And trans temp now.

Put on some new rotors and hawk lts pads. HUGE improvement over the regular O'Reilly's crap. And an oil change.

Three tires are 225/70/16, one tire is 225/75/16 and aired down to match the other tires' diameters currently to preserve the transfer case while I wait for this next paycheck, which is buying me new tires (and basically nothing else, for another 2 weeks)

Will the 75s fit in the Orvis tire cover? I know for a fact I could jam a much larger tire under the wheel wells without a problem, but I'd like the spare to fit in the cover as well. I didn't buy a mint condition Orvis edition for no reason.

aring down does nothing to change the diameter

also i looked at mine at that angle and yeah it looks similar lol its just a bad angle

That viper key has to add 50 HP eh?

225/75 should fit. I fit a 245/70R16 in my cover (slightly taller and wider than a 225/75). It's a good bit of work and the bottom may not go all the way over the tire, but it fits well enough.

It does change the effective rolling diameter by allowing the tire to squish more.
