Any of you guys have a catch can installed. How did you plumb it pics would help out alot. Thanks guys
Totally wrong.here is my install (V6)
Now I'm confused lol should we have two catch cans if he's getting oil from the fresh air line?
On the G8 V6 the Fresh Air Supply Line (green) runs from the intake tube in front of the throttle blade to the crankcase, entry point to crankcase is on USA drivers side valve cover at the rear.So mate, per your argument, the green line is the breather line to crankcase, entering at "US driver" side cover, and the PCV on "US Psngr side" goes to manifold. That could be, (then I must have mexed where the joint goes, I'll check em tomorrow morning if weather helps
Read the GM Service Manual description above. During abnormal conditions there will be "backflow".BUT how come the catch can I mounted on the green line traps things?
Run it 3 months one way and measure the **** you collect, then try it the other way. Only expense will be some more hose.So ...
- Is it better to trap regular blow-by before it gets back into intake manifold (OE has planned it that way).
- Or better to trap possibly "reversed flow blow-by" at WOT from getting to TB (which would influence TB performance on long term for sure)
- Or slam another can
