Oil Catch Can

Has anybody got one of these? Is it really a necessary item? Is this specific to Turbo engines only? I have seen the grime that builds up in an intake over like 10-12 years. Does this catch can eliminate this build-up?

Thanks,
John

Great thanks. I was thinking about getting one but the price seems a little high and I wanted to be sure it was worth it. Does anybody have one installed with pics?

Thanks,
John

i saw a real nice chromed one...

for like $62.00...

but i can't remember what site i was at... not one of the typical ones though. Cost was $62... with a meter on the side to show how full... real nice looking with chrome and red anodized tips... rats... where was that??? i'll try to find it...

Any word on where to find install instructions... can't be too hard i assume... just two hoses and mount the engine wall, correct?

i remember now... www.pdm-racing.com


its nice looking... no logo... but chrome with red anodized and clear tube to level indicator... how bout those REX install instructions...
