I heard whining noise coming from my catch can so I took it off to fix a loose fitting,but it turns out that it's broke....hmm or should i say i turned it too much and it broke?
You can talk until youre black in the face and you wont convince them.If you see any of the videos of a port fuel injected car engine you can see how the injectors shoot the gas in on the heads and the fuel is ignited. It actually cleans the pistons off and won't allow any build up. Now if your car is super charged or turbo charged then you will get way more blow by oil and that could make your car run a little rough or give you some backfire. We are talking substantially more oil than what you are seeing now.
And here's the response:I know my few posts do not compare to your 1,000 but cycam1...why are you so negative and nasty about this topic? I respect your opinion, which you have made clear in this thread. so live and let live, and move on. I actually thought you made some sense with your rationale...i didn't agree with it, but I could understand why you thought what you thought. But some folks believe in the catch can concept and feel it is worth the $150 investment. So what, if its all snake oil, it's their $. If it isn't and they can add some years to their cars, it's still their $. Either way, it's their decisions and $.
I see a lot of great members here that are helpful, courteous and respectful. I come here to see if I can participate but usually just end up reading a bit and moving on. This should be a pleasant site to visit for open discussion on our favorite topics...Camaros! It's threads like this that make me not want to return.
I am trying to save some uninformed people from wasting their hard earned money that they can use for other mods that make more sense. I have the knowledge from being in the industry for over 30 years and talking to other engineers about stupid stuff like catch cans and snake oil. Some folks are new and are very gullible. If I was just starting out I would welcome such information to help guide me from wasting my money. That is what these forums are for. If you don't like what I have to say then go to another topic. Some people WANT to be educated and some don't. Don't get your panties in a bunch about it.
Most gas stations today do have detergent gas. That was not the case six or seven years ago. My point was the V8 engines have port fuel injection and these gases clean your engine so a catch can is not needed.So, what if you do not always use those detergent gasolines? At what percentage does it make a difference? Right now, I would probably say I am 50/50 on detergent and non-detergent.
Luds, you are correct. I was not playing as nice as I should have. After reading my old post, I was out of line and I humbly apologize for it. I don't know what my frame of mind was that day but I didn't need to come across that harshly. Thanks for pointing that out. :thumbsup:I've been down this road before. Can't talk reasonable with some people, but they have that right. Here's my first post:

I actually respect his opinion, but when he attacks, it becomes white noise. I did my homework, read up on the pros and cons, and purchased a can for my v6 and have no regrets. And if anyone asks for my opinion that's what I'll say...well, I'll also add that I went with the elite cause of the easier draining method. :thumbsup:
