    Looking fur opinions on using this system over valve cover breathes only.
    I have TA Valve covers with the short K&N push in breathers. I also run PCV...

    Does a dual catch can setup such as the racetronix catch cans offer any improvement or benefit? Any downside to running a catch can set up on street car?

    Can these catch cans create more restrictions than push in breathers?

    The catch can does nothing really. It only uses baffles chambers or screens to catch oil mist in the gasses blowing out of your engine. I wouldn't think it would be a restriction or help ventilation either.

    :(Downsides to having one or two.......
    -The purchase.
    -Using up realestate.
    -Some think they are ugly in any form.
    -Having to empty it from time to time.
    -Extra hoses brackets and fittings.
    -It getting in your way when you have to get to something.

    :)Upsides to having one or two......
    -Your breathers wont drip oil on your valve covers and then stick to all kinds of crap messing up your engine compartment making things all yucky.:vomit:

    I don't use catch cans. For some reason (I don't know why) I never see a drop of oil come out of my breathers.
    Do you need one?
