L99 with Catch Cans

Hi gang, so how many of you have gotten these and are you catching alot of oil? I would like to know how they are working out. I do not have a supercharger but I do run close to review limiter paddle shifting and do alot of WOT.

Let me know.

Thanks

Scott

No catch can. But a valid note. When I did the SC and tune (3800miles) we thoroughly inspected the OE intake and TB. There was NO oil in it. Not even a film. There is still none today (6 months and 3k later).

I am running a 160 Tstat tho and my fans are re-programmed. These engines change clearances a bunch when heated above 180. A lot of respected tuners have tested and shown higher blow-by/consumption at the higher temps...

As a side note I am also running a 160 on my LS2 Silverado with no oil consumption or blow-by in the intake...

This will certainly start a flame war so stand back!

Hypurone has one of the lucky ones if no oil ingestion, very few out there.

I'm taking taking the advice from my tuner Ted Jennetty who says it's worth the $$ so mine is going on next week. I really don't know much about them except what I read on here but it can't hurt. I've got several other small mods I'm adding next week so I decided to just add the can at the same time.

I put in a catch can when I put in the SC. It hasn't caught a lot in the 500 miles since it went in, but I checked it and there was some residue in there. I think it's a good investment, especially when the SC goes in.

My 2001 Camaro A4 use to catch a lot of oil. I plan on putting one on my new 2011 L99. Any oil that does not go into the intake is good as far as I am concerned.

Maybe. But I am sure my very specific break-in procedure is the reason.

I don't mean to jack your thread but I have an M6 and just removed the throttle body to send in for the CNC TB replacement. I noticed quite a bit of oil residue and light oil puddling in the TB flap and inside the intake manifold. I'm ordering a catch can along with the TB!

Is it possible that the oil you think you see on the throttle body is actually from an over-oiled filter? Way outside my area of expertise here, so please advise if this is lame.

I have an L99 with Roto Fab and have been following these catch can threads trying to decide if I need one. I am just wondering if this was such an important component, why don't the CAI manufacturers have a design that includes a catch can?

I just ordered one yesterday. GM should put one on the car not the CAI people IMO.

I have one on my L99 with headers, Catback system,CAi. No SC yet. I drive a lot and sometimes get rev happy from the toll booths. I will empty my catch can every month or 3000 miles. Probaby find about 1/4 cup or so in there, so I know its working. Ill try and snap a shot later since its due.

This catch can goes on the dirty side of the PCV system. Not really an air intake issue.

To the person asking if the oil found on the back of the throttle body could be an over oiled filter. There would be oil along the entire duct and front of blade as well, so I would say no. There are those still running stock air filters and intakes who are seeing the same thing.
