The install was really easy, took me 10 minutes. The hardest part was reaching the bolt underneath the can.

Heres the write up for the install.

I got that installation but I'm just confused on the driver side breather like where do I put the plug on because I know one goes on the intake manifold but where does the other goes to?

So you know both hoses go from the valve cover to the catch can? Normally it goes Valve Cover -> Intake Manifold and Valve Cover -> Intake. So the little rubber plug goes on the intake manifold and the other on the intake.

This is on an ETS intake, but its the same concept. You just need to put the rubber plug on the adapter on the intake pipe.

ok I know where it is exactly now thanks for the help
But before you took out the reservoir out did you pump the coolant out? Since the kit comes with the pump

I checked, but didn't have to. Keep in mind that reservoir is just an expansion tank so it rises and sinks when the car is hot/cold.

So coolant should just flow into the expansion tank by its self?
