    catch can

    I went to empty my catch can and noticed it was bone dry inside. Is this normal?

    How long have you had it installed?

    Sounds like it may be installed incorrectly. . .

    It is common for people to install them between the crankcase vent and intake tube, this is not correct.

    It is to be installed in the line coming off the PCV valve.

From what I understand its a crazy story,(to me) .... turns out we need to burn off some junk thats thrown back into the intake by design, ... but these little smarty pants thought, F that! Lets just catch and deposit it into a can instead of throwning back into the engine to burn off.... BRILLianT!! I want a black 1 with black braided steel and black fittings!!

    PS, some guys make em!

    I agree with D-LASH. If you do want a catch can, hit up 3g or BT.
    Just slam it.
