RX Oil Catch can's

Just a question for the wise on this site. What are the reasons or the need to install an oil catch can on a new camaro. I see some i have looked at say they have installed an RX oil Catch can on some of the more modified ones i have looked at. Just was wondering why? Does it get too much crankcase presure and barf out oil out of somewhere? Let me know what you think and Thank you

Re: RX Oil Catch can's

The catch can goes inline with the PCV and reduces the amount of oil that goes back into the manifold and combustion chamber. In a stock application this is minimal but when compression is boosted by blowers and other power adders there is an increase in crank case pressure and more oil can get into the manifold.

Like everything else sometimes you see modifications like this and it's not necessary. It's an easy install and guys read about others doing it so they do it too. To many it really can seem like a needed item when between oil changes it catches a couple spoonful's that would have otherwise been burned off in the combustion chamber!

Re: RX Oil Catch can's

From what I've read the V6 5th gens seem to have more of an "issue" than the V8. But as DjD said, under normal conditions it's probably not necessary for either. Some guys swear their cans are filled with oil after a few thousand miles. I have to doubt it.

On a side note, the new 1LE Camaros come with a catch can/ oil separator set up from the factory.

Re: RX Oil Catch can's

If running a power adder, the last thing you want is oil in the combustion chamber
Oil "can" cause detonation in some cases....power adders and/or on the edge of the limits of pump gas.

Yup, I agree about the power adders. I run one on my blown big block. I don't run one on my 5th Gen, at least not yet. Only minor mods on that one for now.
