So after reading all the other threads saying how everyone should get a catch can, that Ford should have put them on from the factory, I finally got one, after 25,000 miles on the car.

After pulling the stock tube from intake to valve cover off, I noticed both ends dry as can be. not even a drop of oil. Did any of you notice this when installing your catch can? Is it really needed?
Are you guys really getting oil out of these?

I was tempted to just put it back on and send the catch can back, then thought, what the heck, i got it, might as well put it on.

Im pretty sure most people on here just make their own. One guys has a clear bulb on it and it does show there is oil present over time. Remember its an oil mist not so much beads.

Thanks for the feedback guys.. Was just curious ssince the stock tube was bone dry, and clean..

Guess if mine catches none, that would be a good thing too right?
Plus it looks good..

yep....i've been waiting to head to home depot to grab the air dryer i need to make one.
That's what I did on all my LS1 cars. Much more simple. This time I just went with the JLT since it's a direct bolt-on.

Having two left thumbs, I purchased one from AMERICAN MUSCLE (Thanks Dan). I put it on at 535 miles and cleaned it at 1,038.4 miles (503.4 miles). I had less than 1/8" of oil in it.

I then went from 1,038.4 miles till I had 1,280.6 (242.2 miles). Found less oil this time.

OrganDonor,

If it's not catching anything, it just means you have minimum blow-by (good thing). However, pressure has to build up at some point, so it's still worth having. Let us know what it looks like after a 1k miles or longer!

Here's mine after 4,000 miles. It definitely catches stuff from my engine.
