Blue has refused to return it for a full refund, but will sell it at a discount? The Elite can is a great can.

The Moroso can looks awesome, but that video is only showing the oil inside...not that almost as much is pulling through into the supercharger. The Elite works over twice as good as the moroso.....try it and see for yourself. Install a clear glass inline fuel filter between that can and the IM and see how much pulls through.

The idea of a catchcan is to trap ALL the oil, not just part of it.

Works easier for me that way and helps someone else out as well I get the elite they get the rx red can and This way won't have to go without a can. I'm a firm believer.

ok so ive read this and im still missing the part that says its a good product for the V8 models, i know its very recommended for the V6 models, but what about a V8 that is not modded heavily in the performance depatrment? Sorry if i missed it somewhere in here.

Any oil ingestion into the intake air charge increases detonation so the PCM will pull timing to protect the engine from damage and thus less power and less MPG. Also, oil does not burn well at all so if it is in the combustion chamber contaminating the air/fuel mixture less power is produced per explosive event (the combustion process).

That and the carbon deposits, but the V8 still is port injection so the intake valves stay clean if a top tier fuel is used.....but the rest of the issues from oil contamination are enough to want to prevent it.

2014 and up the V8's will be DI and have the same issues the 4 cyl & V6's do today.

Good to see you finally admitting that the V8's don't need a catch-can by your statement above and as I have always stated for V8's, but you wouldn't give it up. I knew if I waited long enough you would do it for me.

Many PM'd me to just bide my time and as the Good Book says, "The truth wil set you free".

What? How the heck did you get that out of what I posted?

Freaking crazy the way you twist stuff around....and you wont quit with your personal crusade agianst a product none of us care if you dont use, but stop this already. Put your time into contributing something positive for the members here.
