    Been contemplating an oil catch can. Done a good bit of reading on it. Seems like a very worthwhile investment.

    I've thought about it too, but I'm not super engine savvy so I don't know the benefits. I know it helps with blowback or something along those lines, which I assume is oil going into the intake.

    Basically it keeps extra oil from re entering the engine through the manifold via the piston crankcase ventilation. It contributes to extra build and sludge in the valves where it shouldn't be. Think I'm going to look at buying one soon.

    There's literally no drawbacks and it's an extra level of protection for your engine. I say go for it. I'll do the same mod soon enough myself.

    Ah. How involved is it? Do I have to drill holes into the block or does it use existing plumbing?

    Yeah me too. I almost feel now though that this is a must do mod for me with only 48k on my motor.
