    I know it is burning some oil. Gotta do something.
    Opinions??
    Need info on the car? Just ask.

    Catch can. I'm not a fan of the breathers, too much oil contamination.

    from what I've read on ls1tech, people don't like breathers because it lets out metered air. Most said to run breathers on a track car, and a catch can on a street/strip car. Like I said this is what I've heard from others, correct me if I am wrong.

    That is what I thought.
    This car sees the track...but is mostly a street car.

    What has everyone done for a catch can?? Spent the $160 and gotten the really nice one? EBay?? Home Depot?
