Do you want to keep it for a long time? If so, yes.

The number one question you need to ask if debating a catch is do you plan on having this car in the long run or unloading it in 5 years. If you say yes to your in for the long haul I would say its something that you definitely should have.

Just my opinion but the $100-200 you spend on a catch can pays it self off quickly from not having to scrub and polish your exhaust tips as much!
And if you sell the car there is always people on here looking to save a few bucks and will buy your used can.

IMO it is even more important to have one on a V6 than the V8 due to the Direct injection.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions we have the Elite Engineering catch cans in stock with free shipping and upgraded nickle fittings at no extra charge.

Best regards,

Tyler

I personally think it is worth it. It's a preventative maintenance modification, that's all.

OP, the answer is yes. How hard you drive has little to do with it.
