Installed Elite Catch Can ~ Question though

Bought it from a forum vendor and it was nice quality. A tad pricey but I think it will save my valves from being gunked up. I cleaned them at 30k when I put on the mace insulators on and OMG the valves had chunky gobs of goo hanging from it. Took hours to clean.

Only question I have is what can I do to stop the oil creep up the Injen cold air intake? If I followed the directions right I have the can installed correctly but the Air Cleaner still gets some crap flowing up the throttle body. Not as much but enough.

Thoughts?

It's pretty much accepted that 95% of the oil comes from the "dirty" side of the crankcase ventilation system (where you have your Elite can now).

The other 5% will come down the "clean" side into the air intake tube and many people will put a catch can on both sides in the attempt to capture all the oil.

Ok thank you. I saw that. I can take a 5% hit. I will post up what I catch at the oil change interval. Good info.

What scares me is the 5% is being input to the CAI right next to the MAF. It is very slightly down stream but I can't help but think with any turbulence around the MAF is any oil getting on it ?

The optimal solution is a catch can on both sides, but it's not 100% necessary to have a catch can on the clean side.

Best regards,
