When I got back in the garage, it had shot oil everywhere, and onto the heat exchangers. Nothing like having to take a fire extinguisher to the underside of the car at 0600.

I think part of the problem is that the tee was at the level of oil in the sump. I'll try builing a catch can today at work. I looked at some commercially available cans, and they seem to be a bit too deep for my application.

did you get the new muffler??? just curious
