Ok picture's like this have been posted before, But seeing it in person and knowing it came from MY car really had an impact. Truth be told I was thinking I wasted my money at first, sort of a buyers regret thing. Felt I should have put the money towards a CAI or Rims. Now I'm really glad I did this first. Here's some details. The engine is the V6.The can is the RX catch can. I installed it at 3000 mile's. Now I'm at 6000 mile's. The oil is Mobil 1 synthetic.

Mine looked the same, about 2oz of dirty looking oil that would have gone down the intake. The can works. The question is why doesn't GM have them on the cars? Just saying........

I know that's right. I just posted a pic of my intake horn when I had my TB installed a week ago and it was clean and prestine and I know its all because of the catch can. I didn't even have so much as black film in which some have been known to have or have shown.

Cool

Because the average person does not even know how a car runs.
If a car had it, most people would not even think about checking it.
I know people that does nt know there is water in the radiator

This has to cause serious issues sooner or later. I don't belive you can have all that oil sucked down your intake for years and not affect prefomance or damage the engine in some way.
