Proof is in the Pudding

I changed out all my fluids after my break in period and shot this video of emptying out the elite engineering catch can. About 1000 miles of catching and this is what it did.

Not bad at all. Mine was catching 1 oz per 300 miles. It's been at the dealership for 9 days so far. They are looking into the excessive oil going through the PCV system and a few other issues. Thanks to the catch can I was able to show them what was happening.

Mine was a little over an ounce is my best guess. Let us know if they find anything. These things are worth their weight in gold. And with gold over $1300/ounce that's a lot!

I was hoping to get my car back but apparently it still isn't ready. I'll let you know as soon as I know what the cause was. Here was my first 500 - 600 miles after installing the catch can. About 2.25 ounces/

Oh wow. Now that I see it sized up to it mine looks like less than 1oz. Good luck.

I would have been much happier with the amount you are showing. I've heard that a couple of tablespoons between oil changes is normal.

You may need a longer hose with the L99. Might want to shoot sales@eliteengineeringusa.com an email and let them know you have the L99, so they send you enough hose. Or you can just pick up some 3/8" tranny cooler hose from your local auto parts store.

When they asked for model I wrote in 2010 Camaro SS Auto. Hope they pick up on that.

I just got a call from my mechanic and the car is ready. While he didn't see anything particularily wrong, they replaced the valley cover which is under the intake anyway. Apparently the valley cover can leak and has been know to do so on Vettes. I trust this guy and hope he's right. Maybe now my catch can won't have to work in abuse mode any longer.

A catch can is an aftermarket unit sold by Elite Engineering. Theres a sponsor here on the site. Theyre about 175 bucks, but definitelt worth it. Runs in line with the PCV system to catch oil vapor before it gets into your intake system. Helps the longevity of your engine/reduces buildup
