Catch can?
 
Didn't see a thread on this.

Was curious if the M6 cars need a oil catch can like GM manual cars in the past did. Anybody running one right now?

I haven't traced out the PVC yet but I have a feeling it still sits in place that will let oil vapor into the intake.

If it's the same as the C6 LS3 setup than yes. It can benefit from a setup. We ran a dual can setup on my buddies C6, one "clean" can one "dirty" can.

I'm not gonna rewrite it all here... but read THIS thread. It's long, but you'll understand things a lot better. Most people install cans/breathers wrong.

Most of the time with a non-FI engine you do not need a can for oil.

I had one on my Goat and my wifes Charger and they both filled about 1/2 way between oil changes. Neither car is F/I.

I'll read the other thread tonight. Does anyone sell them for the Camaro or is it a matter of adapting a existing product?

There are a lot of them sold for LS3 based corvettes.

http://www.mikenorrismotorsports.com is one on this site.

The Vette we installed the setup on was not FI and it gets a decent amount in the can between oil changes.

I agree FI cars will utilize it a lot more, but I'm just ocd and like to keep oil out of my intake mani haha.

Why did I read that tread all at once. :drool: I'll have to take that and read over it again.

ok i've seen these but have never used one


so do these basically help prevent oil from getting sucked back in resulting in a better burn, better emissions, cooler intake, less wear on the cats, less build up on valves,and not clogging up vacuum hoses.

is this it or am i missing something or completely wrong?
