    Catch Can & LS6 VCT update

    Well it's been about 6 weeks since I did the LS6 VCt and installed a Catch Can.

    I wanted to see how much oil it had caught. I drained it into a cup and was a little surprise by just how much oil I had.






    Also Yes I just did an oil change 2 weeks ago.

    I have to say this again that this is a worth while mod.

    And that is with the LS6 VCT. I hate to see how much it would have caught with the stock PCV.

    Actually I get much less with the stock PCV system and just a catch can.

    So I'm wondering if that LS6 PCV was even worth while. That's quite a bit of oil for just 6 weeks of driving.

    I go 3,000 miles and drain it when I change the oil, and I barely have that much oil in a small aerosol lid with the stock LS1 PCV system.

    I thought so too but then I realized that since I've done this I've not had to add any oil. I used to have to add about a 1/4 of a quart every 3-4 weeks depending on how hard I drove. Damn low oil light kept coming on. No issues since this mod.

    If your not getting much oil in your catch can, you're not driving your car hard enough
    high rpm/high ring blow by situations will increase the crankcase pressure enough to push oil into that catch can.

    We generally go an entire oil change interval before I notice the oil is slightly low. Maybe 1/2 quart after 3,000 miles.

    I made my own valley pan mod with a 10-an 90, then made a splash shield for it... I still suck a half quart of oil at the track one day...

    I paid $105 for mine, I think I like the look of those. I think I saw them advertise for Cadillac.
