Yeah, just think, all that ugly oil would have gone into your combustion chambers... (Doesn't really help performance at all
Each engine configuration will determine how often to empty it.
Best to keep an eye on it, maybe empty it every 1000 miles, until you get a feel for how long you can go.
Usually you can do it every 2k miles or so; but don't wait too long, you don't want more of that oil to go down its throat!
Recently we did a L99 to LS3 conversion, having 21,000 miles on it. The customer never had a catch can installed,
and when we pulled the heads, there was quite a bit of carbon built up on the valves and pistons, at 21k
Needless to say, a brand new Elite Engineering Catch Can was immediately installed to resolve this problem in the future
Pretty much every car that comes into our shop gets a new catch can.
All this oil not only contaminates the fuel ignition process (lowering power output), but it gums up the valves,
which will cause drivability issues in the future, such as valves not seating properly, causing misfires.
We have a great selection in stock ready to ship, for a great price!
We now have the updated Camaro SS kits, which mount them in a different cleaner location,
providing better durability, and use with various intakes and superchargers that wasn't possible before.
