<~~~~~~~~ bought an Elite Eng. catch can just to play it safe, I must say it does collect a considerable amount of oil every time I drain it, I look at it as an insurance policy, it's not going to do any harm but It may possibly prevent any future issues by trapping the oil before entering the intake, keeping the engine in tip-top shape .....

I have to admit I turned a blind eye to the catch can thinking it was another "must have" item that no one really needed. However seeing is believing and the photos do not lie. That is a lot of gunk for sure. I now have a different view about the catch cans. Today I have done a lot of reading up. This is something I need to buy and see it for myself on my own Camaro.

I am at 10,000 miles so I need to get the system cleaned before I buy and install the catch can but that's exactly why I am going to do.

OK lol I have a question...I have heard about sea foam and talking it apart and all of that but how would you clean it exactly? I have 65k miles and never done anything other than maintenance. I am getting a catch can when I get my super charger installed. Should I have my guy clean it first and then install?
