I'd like to know is what does it do for you if you have no blue smoke coming out. Dse it help in performance? I ask cause 1-60 was 5.2 sec the best I get now is 6.8 to 6.3.:crying: All started after new wheels:redblob: and cai :smoker:and res replaced the flowmaster resonators. So I'm looking for 1.5 seconds of my best 1-60 time.:crying:What do you guys have installed and where you bought it? I am looking for a place where I can get a complete setup designed for SXT (I have 2016). I do not want to be putting parts together (hoses, brackets, etc). I guess I am lazy. :grin2:
My first question is, are the new wheels and tires a larger diameter than your original set up? That would explain the loss in zero to 60 time.I'd like to know is what does it do for you if you have no blue smoke coming out. Dse it help in performance?

Maybe, or maybe not.Yes I went from stock rims 18" to the one now 20" with new tires, I was afraid I needed to have car recalibrated somehow.
well I see i'm at 3 mph over what I read at 58 i'm really doing 60.8 OMG the cop was right.:bluecap::stickpoke: I went from stock 235/55 R /18 all four to front two at 245/45 R /20 and rear 275/45 R / 20.:nerd: so how do I fix may cars computer on this???Maybe, or maybe not.
Just for kicks, plug in your old tire size and lets compare it to your new tire/wheel set up.

The only other thing I can think of is maybe the new wheels are heavier than the old wheels?
All calculations of MPH are based upon the size of the wheels/tires on the drive axles. Since you have staggered sized tires, I’m guessing you have a Rear Wheel Drive car and not one of the AWD models.so what about the rear tires larger than front, they don't count? try the 274/45/20 and it's a whole lot worse, so which is right?
You won't be catching water in your catch can, but you will still catch oil. Really stinky and nasty oil.Since I live in coastal South Carolina and we don't have much winter to speak of, maybe a few weeks of intermittent cold overnight, would a catch can be of any benefit?
A catch can is there to prevent both oil and in the winter, water from being digested by the engine. Over time, these nasty's build up and performance will suffer. BUT... This doesn't happen after a couple of thousand miles. Maybe if you have 50 or 60K miles, your performance won't be like it was when new??
