Hey Guys, still a pretty new member here and I've done some searches on the subject about catch cans. I hope this subject hasn't been beaten to death...but it's still a little unclear on how to actually install one on the drivers side. Does anyone have any pointers? I haven't ordered one yet....but I'll probably just order the RX Performance Catch Can. Any additional information is appreciated! Absolutely love these cars!
Ya, your correct. There are a million conversations regarding the catch can. Not sure if I am explaining it correctly but; due to smog constraints, manufactures had to design a way to return oil that used to burn off out the exhaust. Problem... turns out it's not just oil smoke but oil.... Oil pumping into the plenum (what used to be the manifold). Folk's that were braking down motors to add a cam or other internal motor items saw all this raw oil throughout the top end. The fix, you got it. The catch can.
Think of it as an inline filter that keeps the oil and the air continues through the motor. Motor Head's are happy and the tree hugger's are too!
Speaking from experience, "THEY TOTALLY DO WORK". I'm sure if you went to youtube you could see the inside of a motor without it. Not pretty. I'm sure there are pix on this site showing it as well.
I'll add a photo of the one I installed. Easy add on...

To me....a catch can is "a must".....I've seen several video's of people draining their catch cans....and I can't believe that much oil is actually recircullated back into the top end of the engine. Can't be good for it. Anyone have any installs of the catch can on the drivers side vs. the passenger side?
