So I see people talk about BT oil catch cans, or just people talking about oil catch cans and I'm wondering what exactly do they do? kind of a dumb question I'm sure but I am just wondering their exact use?
Different type oils have varying vapor thresholds.I just bought one myself. I have no idea how well they work but we will see.
Anyways, to sum it up a little: There is oil that goes through the PCV valve and back into your intake. The catch can is put in series with this line so the oil is caught in the can and not directed back into the engine. Think of it as a accumulator in a compressor in the garage. It is designed to catch the water so it doesn't go into the motor. Fluid goes in & only air comes out.
Does it really cause damage? or is it more to the lines of you just get alot of gunk in the intake???I think it was moreso a "has the damage already been done".
Well I guess catch can joins the list of things to do!:banana:
OK how much more power are we talking about? is it like the CAI? Very little measurable power, or we talking like 5 HP difference?They keeps the oil from going into the combustion chamber. Oil burns at varying temperatures, and basically causes havoc with the combustion process. The Hemis are prone to getting knock from this... in this way it is considered a performance modification, as the computer isn't pulling timing to reduce the knock. More power!
