catch can = cleaner rear bumper

OK

I cannot substantiate this supposition with any factual evidence.

The aft end of these cars are like a magnet attracting a great deal of road grime. Dirt, dust, air conditioner condenser drippings and who knows what else.

Since I added the oil catch can, it seems the aft end of my white GT collects far less road grime.

Fact or fiction?

Could be my imagination?

Just wanted to see if I am alone.

I would believe it. I've had a catch can on my 2014 GT since it was new. I currently run the GT500 AB and the inside of my exhaust tips stay clean. If you run your finger inside of one, you only get a very slight hint on anything on your finger.

My catch can eliminated tire wear.

seriously, less oil burned out the exhaust could result in less road debris sticking on the back of the car, where it gets the dirtiest.

Besides that, painting the hood vents black added 15 horsepower or so.

My 2012 is black over black. I don't consume oil. Any oil residue that might stick to the car is matching color. And the fact the whole car is black added 125 hp.

Are you talking about a rear axle catch can or valve cover catch can?

A rear axle catch can would make sense in keeping things cleaner in the rear of the car, although I don't have one. Plus I wash my cars a LOT.

Lol, now I've heard everything. Maybe if I make a necklace of catch cans and dangle them off my rear view mirror I won't ever have to wash my car again.

For the rear axle vent valve seepage, Ford will set you up with the turkey baster bulb part number AR3Z-4A058-B.

If that doesn't work and you are a person that accelerates hard on a circuit course then a rear catch can or expansion tank may be the options.
