Ditto that for me. Way less volume too, like 1/8" in 5000 miles.

SliM3, are you using gasoline ratio? That is pretty lean from my understanding.

Default E85 and Catch Can Recovery

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. Interesting to see what folks are pulling out of their catch cans.



@bigjae:

I actually went with a catch can because of excessive blow-by. I was really having an issue with smoke from the exhaust and even tried implementing a completely sealed crankcase and vacuum evac @ around 8-10 inHg. It worked awesome during normal driving but when I hit the dyno and pushed it to 8800 oil was spewing out of the oil cap. Now I'm running an ECS Tuning catch can and regular PCV set-up.
