Probably a stupid question, but I’ll ask anyway. I understand how the stock motor pushes some oil back past the valves and accumulates which is a bad thing. I also understand that the catch can stops that oil from going back past the valves by catching it in the can.
(As least I ?think? I understand) You’ve stated that you dumped some water/oil out of the can a few times. Finally the question: Does this mean you need to top off the motor oil occasionally, because that bit of oil isn’t being recirculated?
I plan to buy one. I just want a better understanding
Thanks

That oil would never have been recirculated. It would have been reintroduced into the intake and burned in the combustion chambers. You should make checking your oil a regular thing regardless. Oil is cheap. The few minuets it takes to check the oil is cheap. Engine rebuilds are not cheap.

Understood. I don’t, and never have, cared about the price of oil. I do check my oil often and have it changed every 3,000 miles. I know that’s more often they required, but as I stated, money is not my main focus. I just was wondering if the catch can used enough that I’d need to add oil between changes.
Got it.
Thanks

Brian's answer is correct, the oil in the catch can would have been used/burnt/accumulated in the intercooler pipes/intercooler. So there is no extra oil usage, the oil consumption won't change.

So David, did the weather permit your 1/4mi. drag runs this weekend?

No sir, it snowed. I wish it had! Even with the ECU restricting the improvements from the exhaust the power is up substantially. They really have these engines corked up.

Local idiot checking in,

I have a nominal understanding of why one would use an oil separator, a lot of discussion here is about the intercooler but is the primary reason not to prevent build up of coke? Is there a performance or reliability issue by adding so much extra volume to the system? I will be purchasing a hybrid, is it much of a consideration to use one on a hybrid? I don't have a great understanding of engines but I would imagine that the gas engine on a hybrid would function virtually the same and therefore would need one.

The primary reason for me, from a performance shop, is the intercooler being ruined, the decrease in contaminants in the combustion chamber is second and the build up of gunk is third.

To be honest, I wouldn't waste my money doing it on a hybrid.

Thanks, all the talk of intercoolers had me questioning everything lol

I appreciate the educated helping out the clueless out here.

Correct me if I’m wrong……..
The hybrid does not have a turbo.
Therefore, no intercooler.

further, the hybrid uses an “Atkinson cycle” engine arrangement which leaves the valves open a touch and they don’t have the problem of coming up

Sorry if I was not clear, I was saying that much of the discussion around intercoolers is what initially threw me off because the hybrid does not have one.

Question. This is my first new truck and I want to do everything I can to protect it. How hard is this to install on the Mav? I have a 2.0 AWD and just want to make it nice! I’d like a cold air intake but I don’t see those yet

Both our catch can and our intake are easy to install, intake is SUPER easy. The catch can the only hard part is releasing the factory clips that hold the hoses to the intake and valve cover. We are going to do a short video on that as soon as we get a minute.
