    Need oil catch can, my Z28 gulps oil!

    Does anyone know where i can find an oil catch can for my PCV system on my 2000 ls1. Thunder Racing has been out of stock for like a month and my car is eating oil like crazy! Also does anyone have any idea how to fix that problem? Im getting oil in my intake manifold and its passing through my PCV valve. I changed the valve the other day and it still worked but was caked in oil? I just put Engine Restorer in with my oil change to help with oil comsumption. My car has 93k miles on it. Any advice would be helpful! Thanks guys!

    Also if you mount the can further away from engine heat it'll work better!

    I mounted mine on the frame rail down below the passenger side headlight, since I still have the EGR on my car, and I can drain the can without popping the hood.

    Catch can helps on a normal engine.

    If you are building engine crankcase pressure due to excessive blow-by (meaning weak rings), it's whizzing in the wind.
