Catch Can Pro's & Con's? Worth it?

Hey guy I have a newer SS L99 only about 30k miles and I have been reading a lot about Catch Cans. They almost seem like a necessity to help maintain a healthy manifold and intake?

Would like some feedback I'm still a rookie, thanks guys!

This. It helps keep your engine healthy. If you plan on keeping you car long term it is a no brainer.

I do want it long term and she is my daily driver (well only when I'm not on the Harle) so I need to get one ASAP! I'm at 30k miles right now and never knew this.

Any recommendations on a good quality catch can?

Well, if you have a catch can it makes using Seafoam less fun because there'll be less smoke. That's kind of a con.

I was on the fence about getting a catch can for my somewhat daily driven LFX.

I bit the bullet and went with an Apex Catch Can. Though it was a bit more expensive than others, I went with Apex because of Apex Chase's active participation and sponsorship of this forum.

I installed it about 2 weeks ago; here is the install Apex Catch Can...

And after about 200 "spirited but not overly aggressive" miles, if the can hadn't caught it, where would it have gone?
