There is no point unless you love doing dirty maintenance every month. Other than that, no proven benefits.

So you are saying there is no benefit of a catch can?

The benefit of the catchcan is to catch the oil before it goes into your intake. Will it burn, yeah, about 50% of it will. The rest coats the intake and the rest of the engine after a while it builds up inside the engine and acts like glue to attract any particulate matter that gets past the filter. Over time it will coat the back side of the intake valves. If its no big deal, go pour a few teaspoons full of oil in your air filter every couple of weeks.

...and engine oil does not have a very good octane rating... so you don't really want it in your cylinders

Every car I've ever owned has not had a catch can and there were no issues.

Yeah you know what it will run fine and you might not have an issue but I sure as hell do not want that oil coating everything.

It lowers the octane levels and makes a mess.

It catches plenty of blowby, maybe not 100% of it but enough to let you know it is doing it's job.

LOL some people just love going against the grain for no other reason than to do so. The PCV system was oringally designed to meet emission and environmental standards. Does it hurt the engine with that little amount of oil getting into the intake/runners/valves? Probably not per say.

I dont know about the rest of you, but after about 100k miles of that little amount, I would think its bound to become a bit clogged/dirty. I can just about promise you if Ford didnt have to have that system in place, they wouldn't. Dont think just because Ford did/didnt do something, means it doesn't hurt/help the engine and performance.

Shows how a catch can becomes 100x more important after going FI. And with that being as full as it was, im betting it was just coming in the one end and sucked right out on the other, but its hard to tell how that catch can is designed from the vid.

Agreed about the importance, but no the lines were dry. No oil in the intake track. Seems I caught it just in time. I've been checking it more frequently now.

Your car is really nice... Lots of detail work... I need to know how you attached the Billet Technology catch can to the strut tower??? Did you make a bracket yourself.. if so, what did you use...


Thanks

I made a bracket out of a 1" x 6" aluminum piece. Bent it and drilled it as I needed it.
