Catch Can for anyone who Might Still be Hesitant...

For anyone who is not a believer or hesitant to spend the money... I'm a believer in these now. I've only had my Billet Technology from Moe's on less than two weeks and there is already enough oil in it to slosh around...not a lot, but just barely enough. This is after 12 days...

I'm very surprised at that. It would indicate you loose a lot of oil between oil changes. How often do you check your oil level?

Can you show a picture of how you have yours mounted? Billet looks good under the hood.

Tui its a can installed in the PCV line to catch oil and blowby gunk before its dumped into the intake. Supposed to keep the intake cleaner. Looks like that ones working!

Can't get one for our old iron

I'll get one tomorrow. The Billet Technology one comes with a bracket and bolt and attaches to an unused bolt hole in the engine block.

I don't have blow-by on my 03 so don't really need a catch can, but the way I have done them in the past was to install them inline with whatever line that was the crank case vent. On the 03 there is a hose from the oil fill Tube to the air inlet pipe (CAI) feeding the TB. If I was to install a catch can on the old girl that is where I would put it. Often you see this vent hose simply vented to atmosphere with a small filter on the end of the hose, with the Air tube side plugged. This would keep the TB from sucking hot gases from the engine into the air inlet tube. The COPO thread has some excellent pictures of a racing vent setup. With vent hoses coming from the valve covers to a catch can with a atmospheric vent (small filter). Venting the crank case reduces pumping pressures, how you do it may or may not need a oil control strategy. I don't know about the 03 if it would benefit from additional venting. A lot of the old racers also used header scavenger setups to pull a vacuum on the crank case to reduce pressures and help seal rings. However changing any of this is illegal on a street vehicle for whatever that is worth.
