all they do is catch the oil coming out of the valve cover so it doesnt return in the intake manifold.which gives your engine less chance of dentonating when u raise the compression of your engine..plus u dont have oil taking up space in your cyclinder that could be used by either fuel or air.

Wouldn't a breather do the same thing? I know its not PC to vent oil vapor to atmosphere, but with these big diesels running around a little breather on a 2.5liter subie isn't going to hurt much.

A friend of mine here on the board has a JC turbo kit and on the street there is no problem BUT when we took it to Auto-X, It lost more than a quart (sp?) of oil throug the valve cover breathers (he has two small filters but all they did was filter the outgoing oil), The engine compartment walls wedw covered with oil!

The catchcan is on its way,and the drain plug on it will be replaced with a fitting to drain the oil into the oil pan throug the turbo oil return line. That way, it is reused!

Buy a rubbermaid juice container for kids "easy sipper" style. I have a 1 quart container. $3 at the most. It is also clear, and has measurements on the side. This allows you to see what's getting "cuaght" and how much of it. That what I use.

One time at an autocross someone was like "get the cusco". I asked why? "It will look cooler". I laughed so hard the guy couldn't even figure out what was so damnned funny. Unless that catch can is like $20 it's a waste of money. I was told it costs around $100 - money better spent elsewhere. Puhlleeze who cares what it looks like, as long as it works, and the car freakin moves.
