He meant he was joking about NOT buying a catch can.

Frankly, I don't care if folks buy one or not. The fact that after only 300 miles I captured that oil mist before it entered my air intake runners is proof enough for me to keep it out where it does not belong. I'm still maintaining the upper engine breathing that is required, just removing the oil from it.

That's the line that requires the catch can. The drivers side does not. No oil there (drivers side).

I realized he was joking now. I didn't at first is all I was saying. I'll be picking up the billet moroso. Waiting on a return email from AM before I decide where to order from.

If you do not use a catch can you should be using

FULL SYNTHETIC MOTOR OIL It will not sludge/gum up inside of the motor as fast or as much. But not completely

Putting on a catch can is still the very best to keep your engine's innards clean. If you go to the Mini Cooper Forums you can read about a lot of Mini's that had serious problems with gumming up the engine due to the design of the Mini Turbo engines.

Putting cleaners in the gas tank will not solve the problem at all. They do clean the injectors and top of pistons,etc but they do not stop the oil mist that causes all of the problems. Only a catch can will solve the problem completely.

In the good old days they just stuck a tube as a vent and pointed it to the ground. Any oil mist just went out that tube and polluted the earth. All new engines have a closed system and allows the mist to hopefully be burned along with the fuel. Of course that still allows some sludge buildup.

The big reason that "all" car company's do not use catch cans is because they know most of the oil caught in the cans would end up down drains or in landfills. They all got together and use a world standard of the PCV valve but did find another better system in the last few years.

Excellent points ronnie984. And as the link points out, our 3.7 V6's do not have a PCV valve, so the vapor is simply getting sucked into the intake runners on the passenger side. All the more support for a catch can if you drive your Mustang often.
