Too late to install a catch can?

I just bought a CPO 2013 1LT with 16,500 mi on it and no catch can installed. Is it too late to install a catch can and reap its benefits? Also, assuming it's not too late, should I have a preventative cleaning before I install the can so any other mods I do have maximum effect, or is the damage already done?

Thanks in advance all.

You might want to do a seafoam treatment then install the catch can. Great investment for the long haul with your V6 GM motor!

It's not to late. You might want to consider doing a seafoam in the future though

It is never too late. Like the others have said, you might consider a seafoam though just to clear out any build up that has already occurred.
