So after reading all the above post is there a better catch can which can be used with the IPF system or way to set it up to help insure the motor is not damaged. Maybe a scheduled maintance program other than regular oil changes that I can do to prevent any problems.
Wife not happy about me voiding the extended warrarty we have when it installed and the last thing I want to hear is her tell me I told you so. I need to be sure that I do all I can to prevent any problems that I can.
Again thanks for the input and it is giving me exactly what im looking for because this will be my first SC.
Don't get us wrong. You can do the headers later. its just that you will need a re-tune when you do so, which will cost you additional time and money.
As for whether or not IPFs ventalation design actually does damage the motor over time or not has not actually been proven. I think you really should contact IPF directly about this question instead of getting feedback from this forum which may or may not be feeding you accurate information.
So are you getting IPF's extended warranty, or is it a GM extended warranty? If it is IPFs warranty, then you should be covered for a good while, but they may not want you to run a compeititors catch can, which could void their warranty, and again, is something to ask IPF directly.
Excited for you. Good luck!
