Nah but really its for boosted people, every honda person has one.
Honda-tech has alot of innovative catchcan designs, anything from a propane tank to pepsi bottles.dasgalloway said:I was actually going to use a test tube... if you're blowing by enough oil to fill a catch can... eesh.
Plus, test tube is clear so I can actually see how much oil is in there... and it's easily removed and cleaned (in the sink, or with God-remover)
Not if the outlet pipe is fitted with a filter to prevent any oil vapours which are not condensed into the tank from escaping.dasgallowayBy your logic said:making your engine bay dirtier[/B] (if the qty of oil fumes we're talking about actually has some effect on engine bay sparkliness.)

JoeyD said:I will have to disagree with Das on this one. My IS before boost had some blow by. After 80K miles open your plenum up and look at all the crud that has built up. A catch can won't so much help keep the exterior cleaner but an abnormal amount of oil in the can would be a good indicator of a problem.
