Honestly, they are pretty simple and that is all you really need. I would also use a zip tie to hold the symposer plug out of the way of the shifter components as well.

so is the pressure port needed to convert from stock? or just get the plate without the port?

That's exactly what I have. You don't need much.

The pressure port is really only needed if you are running an upper mount oil catch can. It is nice to have one with a port just in case, but it is your choice.

so you can block the port until you need it? does it come with a plug?

The one pictured has the plug next to the hose barb. Most that have the port have a plug with it. Just keep it plugged until you add the catch can, or forever, Works all the same.

ok cool - do you use the pressure port?

or just the blockout plate?

When I bought my car it had a Steeda delete on it. I bought the CFM because I wanted to route my TurboSmart BOV to it to cut down on the negative psi venting. Been running like that for a couple months now and it is much more enjoyable now that I only vent when boost reaches 10 psi or so.

What does a pressure port have to do/why would that be needed in relation to an OCC?
From https://damondmotorsports.com/products/focus-st-oil-catch-can-kit?variant=1017303012

The DM Stage 1 OCC kit connects into the intake manifold/PCV valve hose connection. Most oily blow-by contaminates travel this path from boost into vacuum transitions, where crankcase pressure has the potential to be greater, then the system immediately turns to a slight vacuum. This causes a fine oily mist that would otherwise flow into the intake manifold. With the DM Stage 1 OCC kit in place, the hoses route the blow-by to the OCC, where they can be filtered and cleaner air is sent back into the manifold. In turn the primary benefits are: cleaner air mixture, and less oily build-up on the valves and in the intake manifold.

Mounting location 1:
-DM OCC is mounted off the intake manifold sound symposer support hole
Benefits:
-Very easy to drain, as the drain valve can be accessed from atop the engine
-Quick install, mostly from above the engine
-The factory top engine cover does not interfere with the OCC
-Minimal hose lengths, minimal hose routing
Disadvantages:
-Sound symposer delete is needed, however we offer one here
-Only works with the factory intake manifold

I have the Mishimoto catch can which attaches on the frame rail beneath the intake (Mounting location 2 on Damond website.)

The port has nothing to do wiht the OCC. the OCC from Damond requires a SS delete becaus eof the mounting locations, you do not need and should not put a boost source on your OCC

is there a standard size generic plug for the firewall opening or something simple being used to close the hole going to the dashboard
