    My Throttle body and MAF have a buildup of what looks like oil. This cant be good for the engine. I clean both with MAF cleaner every oil change (about every 6 months). If a catch can would eliminate this it would be worth the money for me.

    I don't get how your MAF would have oil on it unless your using a K&N Airfilter and in that case your over oiling it. The Oil in the intake would be solved by using a Catch Can.

    No K & N, just FRAM as I cant get Purolator around here anymore.
    The thin oil builup is in the TB at every oil change.
    I should clarfiy that there is a thin film on the bottom inside of the MAF housing and the smooth bellows. Looks like it pools in the TB and runs into the other components. This seems to happen after I have been racing it in the country alot.
    Could there be another problem that is causing this?

    I would catch can right away and run it hard to see how that does. That seems like a lot of oil if it pools in the MAF
