I am 100% confirmed. Running M3 cowl which allows for more room and I really am looking for a secure mounting setup rather than easy access. AWESOME!!!!

Confirmed List:
1) derekgates- Both: Mishimoto and BMS setup with standard hardware
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)

Unconfirmed List:
1) matreyia- Single: Mishimoto setup with standard hardware
2) E92-Ghandi- Single: Mishimoto setup with standard hardware
3) The Banshee- Single: Mishimoto setup with standard hardware
4) hiddenhorsepowergarage- Two: 2 Mishimoto setups with standard hardware
5) STE92- Both: Mishimoto and BMS setup with standard hardware
6)
7) FRNTHVY- Both: Mishimoto and BMS setup with standard hardware
8) Lexxan- Single: Mishimoto setup with standard hardware
9) add1ct- Both: Mishimoto and BMS setup with standard hardware

Once we get some relative idea on the interest we can try to adjust our production batch quantity remotely inline with the demand (if any).

Thanks,
Rob

Is it possible to flip the mount upside down so that the mounting bolt does not hit the cowl?
As far as the M8 Button Head Socket screw bracket bolt hitting the cowl, is it something that is like really smearing the cowl? Or is it just lightly touching it?

We could change this bolt to a countersunk socket head screw as well, which would be no problem, but would prefer the button head to match the other screws securing the OCC to the bracket as well.

OCD runs high around here, so let us try to make it the best as could be expected (assuming the efforts involved are not going to cost another grand. ;) )

Good deal sir. As long as we can get something together that will get more onboard, we will proceed with making the batch. We have edited your name into the confirmed list.

Curious about this as I'm about to order your full external kit. Gotta figure out what catch cans I'll be using I guess. Going to send you a PM.

Count me in for a BMS & Mishimoto bracket for M3 strut bar. Just got my 2nd OCC installed and it’s a PITA to access, especially when needing to service the low side more frequently.

So, I am going to take a guess based on the images that the bracket does not allow rotation so the can may sit under the strut bar? Putting the cans out front with the hoses shooting out has always looked really ugly in my opinion. Pointing them backwards out of the way is the only clean solution that I've seen and I am the only one who does it I guess. I am not happy with these 'bms style' hooks (in my case) as they don't mate to the Mishimoto cans properly. I need a circular adapter plate created for them to work properly.

Food for thought. Make PCV sexy again:

Would love to add you, but first we would need to confirm these fit on the M3 strut bar. Do we have a 100% certainty on this? I don't know for sure myself, but can say that if they do have the exact same profile/shape then they will fit. Let us know if interested, or are willing to test fit otherwise.

Thanks,
Rob

Yeah, there is not too much room to work with in these engine bays and everyone seems to have their own views on what they like the best. As for the bracket indeed it fixes the OCC's position to the front side of the bar rather than underneath the bar, which I felt looks a lot better than having a lil hook up top. The OCC itself however can be rotated on the bracket, so if you wanted to point the lines in other directions it still could be possible (although formed hoses that come with some kits may not work). However short runs without many bends would be most ideal for functionality.

Personally I like the low side OCC photo attached the best, and as long as the consumer doesnt get all whack on doing their own overcomplicated things with AN fittings and oversized lines it looks pretty elegant IMO. Alongside this not everyone wants multiple OCC's, in which case we'd suggest always prioritizing the existence of the low side can over the high side can.
