Just wondering why I'm seeing alot of NA guys running catch cans - I understand about being needed for boost but why are they needed on an NA LS1 car?
N E info would be great
Have a read of this Corvette PCV Oil Catch Can
Basically, the Lsx engines have a bad pvc system, and coat everything in the manifold in oil (can be a fair amount, ive seen one lad with puddles of oil in his) so putting the can on stops all that crap hot oily air mixing with the fresh cool clean air comming in and obviously keeps the manifold clean
I deff noticed mine ran smoother and responsed better when putting it on my ve, after a week or so of driving ive got a teaspoon or 2 of oil in there
Hope this helps
I would be keen on a catch can where can you pick them uP from plus i plan on taking my car on the track one day i think you need one or you cant get out on track!
You can get some good ones on ebay, have a look there, Elite Engineering catch can's look to be the goods from what iv heard.
Yeah ive got an Elite one, very good quality and havnt had any problems with it
+2 for elite. Excellent product, no dramas at all. I pick up a couple of teaspoons of oil after a week or so of driving.
Definatley worth the money!

VX Series 2 Berlina GEN3
+3 Elite on mine also.
I am also keen to install one on my VX SS just a quick question should i buy one with a breather or one with out...and how hard are they to install
Another vote for Elite cans - they are the duck's guts.
I'd buy one that is sealed - as the breather type ones do not comply with EPA rules and you may get pinched if you get pulled up.
