    catch can question

    My question is about a catch can, is it a for sure needed thing for the LS1?
    When I had my mustang, I ran one on my 04 mach 1, because I was running a Procharger D1sc, put a catch can on my 13 Mustang GT, because it looked good. So my question is just is it something that is needed or not really needed.
    Also is there one out there that is the best bang for the buck? or are all about the same?
    Thanks everyone for the suggestions, look forward to reading them

    No problem. I am certain your research showed that a catch can is a must on our cars. Here's our setup - it works perfect. After a day at the track, I usually have just about an ounce of oil in the can.

    I installed mine in the location where the air pump use to be. I used the hoses that were originally for the air pump. Seems to work fine. My oil consumption wasn't much before, but has gone down to zero after the catch can install. I found a generic general purpose tank from summit racing. Fab up some brackets and threaded in some brass nipples to the bottle. Looks really clean and is completely out of site. With all the emissions junk and air pump junk out the engine bay made a HUGE difference in the engine bay. Of course, you will have to have the air pump and EGR systems deleted from the computer.

    That seems to be the norm for most people. I try to make everything very stealth. I don't have any pictures, but I will. I've done 3 cars this way, including my own.

    Don't get a cheap ass one made in China and you should be ok. It needs to have a decent medium for separating the oil from the air and depositing it into the reservoir.
