That's like saying " I don't plan on smoking long so unfiltered cigarets won't hurt me. Then 5 years later "I wished I'd taken better care of myself when I was younger." Don't forget to empty it every 3K miles.

ya like i said most people are not really going to need it. plus most have a 100k/5 year warranty. most people do not void there warranty BTW for ANY car. i personally think people over react with the cans. i mean you really think GM would make a engine with that big of a problem? think about how many people bought a camaro and how many are not adding catch cans and how people people are not going to have any problems lol. because that would be a bad engine if people are having excess oil screwing there engines up. plus who here is really going to drive there camaros past 120k miles ?

but yes FI is different story.

Thanks kindly.

I plan on 300K plus. If I were to buy a used and the only difference between a choice of two that the only difference was a "can" I'd buy the one with a can. Have you ever opened up an engine Mike? Or do you talk like you know? Your the type I'd never buy from. The run it till it pukes, then it's someone else's problem. It wont void a warranty either.

I often run my cars well past 120,000 miles. (I don't have anyone to buy my cars for me.) I've seen plenty of cars that have oil residue in their intakes whether they are FI or NA cars. I think a catch can is a good idea.

It's an EPA/emissions requirement. GM doesn't have any say in the matter.

well thinking back the people i talked to about this do work on engines and know what they are doing, but they were not thinking of 300k miles on a car. i am only saying for people who don't drive there cars past 100k miles really do not need one. and to be honest rich or poor i don't see any body hitting over 150k miles or even 200k miles on a car.

and BTW most people do not know what a catch can is nor know anything about how to truly take care of a engine.i probably wont be able to sell to you, but the rest of the 95% of people i could.

I can't remember who said it but it again holds true. ....."Never argue with an idiot, an on looker may not be able to tell who is who." Buy a catch can, install it, periodically empty it. It's cheep money for a long term value and if it does work by stopping some oil from getting the worst thing that can happen is lower emissions.

Very Nice looking example......What color rally stripes? White looks best on red I'd think. Just a passing thought.......... so I'll be the one to ask, before someone else does, if you've instructed her to have the dealer remove his advertisement from your rear end......lol
