None whatsoever! If they were necessary Chrysler would have put them there. IMO Just another way to get your money. If the oil doesn't foul the plug whats the difference? $100!

Its funny that you say this... there are a lot of things that car manufacturers dont put on cars that down the road they find out oh i guess i should have done that.

We add the catch can to help insure the longevity of the motor...it will not create more horsepower or anything like that.

To insure the longevity of the motor? That's funny stuff right there! Just change your oil, you'll be fine.

I think I'll keep my catch can and also change my oil so thanks! I'll also empty the nasty shit in my catch can that would normally go back into my engine if I didn't have it

I think of it as more of an "insurance" to ensure cleaner internals....Of the manifold and intake runners, stuff like that...

I mean, here's a pic of mine as well, this was after like 3 weeks of regular driving, I know I wouldn't want this going back through my intake manifold and gumming stuff up
Amazed by a catch can - Page 2 Image001-1

It might not make power, BUT this oil isn't designed to go back into the motor, oil vapors WILL make their way throught the PCV even though it not supposed to, and all this will snake it's way back into the motor. Also this is where the Catch Can prevents that little puff of smoke upon start-up as well......

Yeah.. It's interesting that they recommend "going with your gut". Based on how much oil I see these things collecting, my gut tells me I don't want all that crap coating my air intake and manifold. It certainly doesn't hurt anything and it's a relatively inexpensive mod.

I suspect you got -16 rep BECAUSE you're "playing Devil's Advocate." Neutral


If you like the idea of a catch can, put one in.
If you don't like the idea, DON'T PUT ONE IN!

Damn, how did I miss this one? I have a catch can & I see the value in it. But John, you are entitled to your view & I hope you feel free to express it.

To whomever red-repped you: Is the group-think mentality what you really want here? I looked at his posts and there was nothing disrespectful in my opinion.

Well I stand corrected. I was just helping someone out on lxf and found some interesting stuff on cfz. Apparently SOME of the v6 guys are having problems with their plenums getting gunked up and causing their cars to A, not run ar B, throw codes. I stand corrected, catch cans DO serve a purpose. Whoever thinks they're worthless are IDIOTS! LOL
