interesting stuff on ebay

first of all, i found this catch can that fits the C63

--> http://www.ebay.com/itm/ADD-CARBON-F...#ht_3356wt_907

is a catch can really helpful for the longevity of the engine ? and could this work ?

was considering the weistec one which is 500$, this one is 60$. i don't know much about the topic, is it an easy task to do, or is there some engineering involved in it?

also, this intake looks outstanding but for $3,600 wtf ... havn't heard of it either

--> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nemesis-Merc...r#ht_500wt_967


THOUGHTS ???

They claim the catch can increases hp!

The intake does look great but not willing to spend $3,600 for it.
JL motoring sells the exact same thing (minus the CF airbox) for 1k.

$500 for a catch can? I've made one from an aquafina bottle on my race car and it worked..

If you have a functioning pcv system it is not really necessary.

C63 has a proprietary valve/connector coming off the engine to the breather tube. It not as simple as installing a coke can I dont think.

at first , that Nemesis kit was $4200 . i called Driiv and actually talked them down to $3500 . then i found out that AZN had the same kit for a promotional price of $2300 so i bought it and i am waiting for it now . should look pretty good sitting next to the blower and it should help a bit with air flow

So you got the promo from AZN. Please post some pictures when you received them. I'm interested in them too. I wish someone could post some dyno results on it.
