1st 500 miles with Catch can results….

The can captured just over 1oz of oil from going into my TB and this was only in 500 miles. Very happy with my decision to purchase it! Thanks Tracy/RX!

Can the oil catch can help with our motor problems?

What are our motor problems? Are you talking about the "potential" timing chain issue, if so, no. For this check your oil regularly, FORGET the oil life monitor and change at 3K for standard oil, <5K for synthetic oil and chances are you'll be just fine! I'm running full synthetic and decided I'll be changing every 3-4K.

Same as above (which I have slightly edited) as they are pretty much tied together.

nyrfan, with the installation of your RX oil catch can, do you feel like there is more torque and power? Cause I had one installed and have noticed the increases of both!!

When did you install the can Andrew? The cooler temps we have had the last month is probably the reason your feeling more torque and power. I can't see a catch can adding anything in either of these departments.
