Anyone running one, and how effective is it at filtering out the sludge?

Installation looks straightforward once the crankcase valley pan hose is located.

Where did you buy? I can't find one at Corvette Central, but Custom Corvette Accessories in Va. has their billet aluminum ones for $119 in choice of colours.

Manny, what do you think?

Colin.

I run an Elite Engineering can and it defintily works well. Before adding it I used to find oil in my intake all the time. It is very simple to install and very well made.

Thanks for the feedback Canuk -- The field seems to be split on whether it's necessary but I've seen some real crud on the intake and figured it would help that or even eliminate it.
Not an expensive item and easy to install as you say.....so I thought it wouldn't hurt.

Cautionary note to those owners with vehicles under warranty!!! A mod like a catch can can potentially motivate your dealer to be a d1ck!!

Thanks for the warning but my dealer is already a dick.....:rofl:

Just kidding, actually he's pretty good, but there are (or soon will be) so many other mods that if he wanted to make it difficult for warranty, it would be fairly easy.

I decided long ago that warranty wouldn't be a limiting factor for my mods.

Wish me luck should I need it.:D

A catch can is a good idea , and they do work ,

Beside's they also look pretty under the hood :D
 
Colin: Good day Mr. Dealer, as you can see, my rear wheel developed a crack.
Dealer: Hello Mr. Colin, what a nice car! Glad to see you here. Lets have a look at that. We've replaced a couple cracked rims this year.
Colin: Really? Interesting. I will have to tell the awesome people on the forum I am with to check their wheels.
Dealer: Well, you can't believe everything you read on a forum. (popping the hood)
Colin: Don't worry, this forum is awesome, especially the moderator, total class act. How's everything look? Do you see the crack on the wheel?
Dealer: (looking under the hood) Yah, I heard that moderator was awesome, but he's kind of a jerk when he writes about dealers....we'll get that wheel ordered soon...hmmm...but we'll need your credit card first.
Colin: Excuse me?
Dealer: Yep! It looks like this soup can looking thing in your engine bay caused your wheel to develop a crack.
Colin: How's that?
Dealer: Well, you see, without the extra oil getting into your intake, you're not properly lubing your engine valves, and as we all know, the engine is ultimately connected to the back tires, so we can't replace your wheel under warranty.
Colin: What!? That sounds obtuse and I don't feel like I am being treated with respect. I am going to tell the people on the forum about this.
Dealer: Oh, please Mr. Colin, we'll replace that wheel under warranty, just don't tell the people on the forum how we like to make money off Corvette owners.
Colin: Ok then, How about I show you how awesome we are and I invite you to Manny's for a lesson in courtesy in how to treat people.
Dealer: No problem, but only if we get a ride in the Nasty 1. We'll be nice to people from now on.
Colin: Deal.
Dealer: Deal.

And everyone drove happily ever after.

btw, these events never happened and all the names are made up. Any similarities between people and events is totally coincidental.
