ok... :rolleyes;   i know i should be hog-tied and feathered, but at the very least, it'd be interesting to see just how much oil is seperated, say... every 1000 miles

and also look what they say in that ebay ad

Brand New, Light Weight, High Quality CNC Billet Aluminum JDM Premium G Style Design Oil Catch Reservior Can Tank.Tig Welded. The kit will ensure better performance and better mileage on your engine. Also it mounts above your valve cover and ensures excess dirt and oil does not get inside your engine. Great upgrade!

its a win/win   :rofl;

if my gn's where high milage, i would do it, just to see,...especially for that price.  i've wasted way more money than that with other crap, whats a few more dollars, lol

I'm running a pair of catch cans.....1) on the PCV system and 2) off passenger valve cover. Just had to fab up a bracket to mount them both.

Not finding any oil in the valve cover catch can, however, I've found about 3/8" oil depth in the apporx. 2 1/2" dia. PCV Catch can after about 1,000 miles of driving.  Glad this has been diverted from being dumped back into the intake thru the vacuum block.

Am using AMW's  catch cans with check valve installed on the PCV can. They are  working great....I am happy with how they function.

I get about 4-5 oz. or so every 1K miles.

Car has 190K+ on it.

PVC catch can setup.

So these reduce the oil list from entering the intake?

Any links to a DIY kit?

Here's a link to where I bought my AMW (Accurate Machine Works) catch cans.

Got them from Haney Motorsport in Goodyear, AZ.
There's a video clip on the site below that shows how much oil it caught after 1100 miles on a Super Charged Mustang.

http://www.haneymotorsport.com/HMS%20PCV%20Oil%20Separator%20Catch%20Can.htm

they sell them as HMS Engine Oil Separator Catch Can.

Here's another link that also includes installation instructions. It's pretty simple to do, may take 1/2 an hour at best.

Looks like one can be made with stainless wool, a few pipe nipples and a can. Could probably use regular steel wool, the oil mist should keep it from rusting.

Did I see Steve say they were worthless overall?

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.
