So its been two weeks sense i installed the Add w1 catch can and after some spirited driving today my car started acting weird and to my surprise when I opened the hood I found this. Has this happened to anyone?

Carbon fiber is neat looking but useless for a CC. It's only as strong as the epoxy they use and how much actually was utilized to secure it. Moral to the story; always utilize a full metal can. I know it's tempting to epoxy it back together but don't until you've sent them the photos and got a confirmation they'll send you another in metal. The metal cans are threaded directly to the upper portion of the can.

I'd suggest if you have to drive with it installed, utilize a couple of long heavy wire ties criss crossed around the can until you get another. Make sure it's secure.

Thank for the tips. I've been in contact with Add w1 and asked if they could send me another one in metal and they said yes, and I kept the OEM tubes just encase something like this happened.
