all informed from time to time--Question--where did you buy your catch can?

While washing the car today I wiped my finger inside of the tip of the muffler and there was barely any carbon, it looked like I wiped my finger on the surface of an old dusty cabinet just darker.

I got the can from mainly because of the large 3/4" inlet/outlets AND the baffling they use is top notch and slightly overkill. Its like baffling that you find under PCV valves attached to valve covers but overly engineered:

The price may seem high but I figured if I had to get new fittings/taps/various other accessories 42 draft designs price for their can was very reasonable.
