    Is there a real legitimate reason anyone would need to install an aftermarket catch can and breather on their engine? This motor seems to be designed pretty well. Plus, I am all for the stock, factory look! The small amount of oil vapor is not going to cause any immediate issues. Maybe after high miles with lots of punishment!

    Use the search function. There are many opinions on this. Up to you. I run a single can but I have a dual BT set up on order.

    Cracks me up about catch cans. You guys are funny. Glad I signed up to the forum. I have one on my '09 SRT because it came with one.
    A couple of years ago I put valve seals on a set of heads and they really fit snug over the valve stem. My buddy said why don't you use these other ones because they are a little looser and you might use a half a quart of oil in 3000 miles and get a little more lube to the valve guides. He is a mechanic by
    trade, I am a mechanic only when I have to be . I said ok, I will use the looser ones.
    But, I thought about it since then a number of times and I wonder if that little bit of oil that is allowed to pass into the intake in a
    stock setup might not be a good thing for the stems and guides if the stock seals are as tight as the ones I had on the '09 ? I don't know.
    So, on my cat I opted out on a catch can.... And keep the rotor from rusting LOL
