    The Dr. is in....thanks for posting. There have been some "Interesting Threads" about this very topic. Folks pretty passionate on either side. But this is direct evidence and it's nice to see....and you don't have hardly miles on yours either...correct?? I know some will blame it on performance mods....but it's going to do this anyway.

    Good to know...Thought this might have been right after you did your mods recently. But it's great to see direct evidence of what's happening inside.

    Probably just an opinion matter, but do you have a particular catch can you recommend? More importantly, are there any to avoid?

    I installed mine right away. Nothing is better than having oil blast thru the combustion chamber let alone being compressed by the impellers o_O

    Immagine that. This helped too but isn't a sub for a catch can. Doesn't interfere with pcv function flow impedance negligible. It causes oil to coelesce here 1st, before the catch can. It reduces what the catch can sees / traps. It is a maintenance point if utilized, I check when I drain the catch can.
