    Brand new.
    Can someone recommend a good replacement for the pop n lock system. This one is way to noisy. Is the Toyota model quiet and are any of the wiring harnesses compatible or do I have to change the whole assembly?

    I have the toyota version and I can’t imagine a louder one. This is loud but I figured it was loud to let me know it’s working. :notsure:

    Yeah we paid $26k out the door for a used DCLB sport with 32k miles 2 years ago. Good luck finding them at that price now.

    Damn. I'm gonna have nightmares just thinking about those stories. I've spent a lot of time on the water in my days so I know how dangerous it can be and how quick the weather can change. Glad you survived it.

    i have that one, you can definitely tell when it locks so “quiet” is subjective, but I have no problem with it

    Any tips on the install? Thx![/QUOTE]

    So this is what I did. My catch can is similar but it came with an aluminum piece for mounting. I cut off the elbow piece so I just had the flat piece left. I attached the flat piece to the catch can and mounted the catch can to the drivers side under the hood using one of the two bolts that hold my relay mount in place. After mounting, I measured the hose from the catch can to the intake and cut it. Then I used the leftover piece of the hose that came with the catch can and attached it to the stock hose from the pcv valve using a fitting and clamps so I didn't have to purchase anything extra. You can also buy an additional piece of hose if you want just one piece that goes to the pcv valve. Attached is a link to the catch can I purchased showing the aluminum piece and a picture of the can mounted. Hope that helps.

    I recently installed the OEM lock and I'm very happy with it. You could put a piece or two of sound deadening inside when you're assembling it.

    Good idea or maybe some spray sound deadening. I think it’s called lizard skin or something.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    It's a crazy dangerous life, but a really good lifestyle.

    Quite the wildlife encounters, huge pods of killer whales, gray and humpback whales, blue sharks, great whites. Yup, they come north, chasing the large salmon runs in summer.

    Plus a lot of remote beachcombing. I have hiked boreal forest trails to pristine beaches, alone. If it is too stormy to fish, then we would find anchorage. I'd take the 8 ft plastic skiff down and row ashore and just go explore. Using the navigational charts to see where I could go. Done that countless times.

    Best remote beaches are on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island, no towns, no roads, only way in is by a very sturdy boat and expert navigational skills.

    Endless sand beaches on the east side of Haida Gwaii, but not so remote as they can be accessed by car. West side of Haida Gwaii (commercial halibut fished there) is all cliffs and peaks, no beaches.

    I miss it, but had to give it up due to a few serious physical injuries. Don't miss being caught out in life threatening storms or the conflicts with other boats. Those sometimes turned into fistfights in harbor.

    That could get crazy. I have been involved in cases where boats rammed each other on the high seas. My father even fired a shot right into the wheelhouse of another boat in one of those cases. Lucky no one was hit.

    Never a dull moment. Here is one of the beaches, this one near Kyuquot sound, west coast of Vancouver Island.

    Wow. Beautiful area. I would love to explore the beaches and encountered the wildlife. Would also love chasing salmon. Just bought a large fillet today. Wouldn't enjoy the storms or conflict with others but I can understand how that would happen. I'm sure things get very territorial. Glad you survived it all and hope your injuries are not too bad.

    It's what I started doing today, planned on being done...but it's all in the details. Before any of my complaints seem to be the thing here, I love this product. It's well made and I'm quite happy with it...BUT, there's a bit of devil hiding in those previously mentioned details.

    So, you might notice the top of the surround is now WAVY (wish I had noticed that before I closed the hood and went..wait, that's not right). I'm sure loosening a few bolts and a little wiggle will sort it all out (but that means removal, carting back up to my condo, dorking around on my dining room table, then taking it back down to re-install...hence some of these little things add up a lot faster than if I was just in my own garage).
    Second, the MTM connection..I have no idea how they were hoping that worked...it's 100% rigged right now. The sales/service person was quick to initially respond (after business hours I think, but not sure), but didn't have info to help me out without talking to some of the shop people. So, might as well learn this before taking it off again to sort out the waves in the surround.
    Last, the wiring it came with made very little sense to me. There were connectors (+ and - of course), but they were both ring terminals (don't think I want this always connected to the battery). OK, maybe different perspectives here, but then the ring terminals are too small to put anywhere (I can't connect the ground to any existing ground bolt/screw under the hood).

    So, I feel like this core product is great, and I'm going to be STOKED when I get through some of the little kinks here...but tonight, the kinks have won and I need a little break before round 2.

    Oh, and if anybody has installed one of these, and knows how to resolve any of the issues I described, please PM me!
