    People who think that they don't need a catch can, are going to be in for a huge upper intake mess down the road.

    Imagine what your valves look like.

    Probably they look fine, if you have been using top tier fuel. GM positioned and timed the injectors and valves to reduce deposits to an insignificant level.

    any updates on the dyno? I'm looking into buying the whole package i.e. the throttle body, iceolater, trifecta tune, and a d3 intake. I just want to make sure all that money spent is going to be worth it.

    I think you are really taking a cheap shot at ktr-sb

    "And another false statement by the #1 misinformation spreader...determined to confuse those looking for acurate information. "

    I have been following both your posts, and after your post about ktr-sb I have lost all respect for your posts.

    I have read both and I agree with you both as to the issues related to oil ingestion with the 3.6 motor. I owned a 2005 that used a quart every 1500 miles and I think either drilling the PCV orifice or the catch can would have solved the issue.

    Every motor is slightly different and all solutions are not the one and only solution. This forum lets you see what is working and what is not. It is still up to the individual and his situation to see what he wants to try to eliviate his problem.

    When you start personal attacks because it might cut into your sales it does not speak highly of your integrity.

    Re: Product reivew: The Black Ice-Olater by VMax - Intake Phenolic Spacer

    cawenger......look back at these threads and see, I started no attacks, he has stared everyone, and the facts are he is absolutely misrepresenting. I have given every source for you to check and verfiy for your self, have offered for ANYONE to come in in person and sse in your own motor, and I have every right to defend myself when he calls be a crook and a cheat.....so I think you have not followed this like you say or you would see all of this. I am a authorized vendor and my reputation as an expert in this field is whithout question, yet he comes into every single thread and posts his fales opinons and attacks me, and I should not respond? Put the shoe on your foot. What do you do for a living? Are you good at it? If I come to your job and stand outside and tell your customers you dont know what your talking about, (when I havent a clue how to do your job and have no training in it) and tell them your a crook ripping people off, how would you respond? Take a minute and think about it, and then REALLY read these threads from the begining, look at dates, etc. He even accuses me of photshopping the pictures I show of the engines past and present in out shop?

    I suspect you were put up to this by him and he is playing you.....but what have you got to loose to actuall read all of this data, from automotive engineers (not marketing brass) around the world from every auto manufacturer there is supporting what I have shown?

    He has made some great threads on DIY stuff he is accurate on, and I complimented him on those....but when he attacks, accuses, and lies about what I am an expert in....any respect goes out the window and anyone that would let someone make untrue claims like he is and not defend themselves is not proud of their lifetime achievements.

    Now, lets discuss facts. 2-3 qusetions at a time and I will answer each in detail for you, show supporting referances, and pictures if possible. Lets have you follow up on this and then tell me I am out of line defending the attacks.

    And the Admin and moderators have most of this documented as he continuously violates the forum rules.

    To be afraid of people knowing the truth about any subject puts us back into the old days of communist russia. The information is out there for all to take the time to see whay he is doing with these constant attacks and the misinformation he is adament on spreading. That hurts all that would want the best for their car plain and simple.

    sc210,
    You are correct, I did not read all the threads word for word I pretty much scanned the content for technical information. I did not see where he called you a cheat or a crook, if he did he was out of line.
    As to him putting me up to writing this, I think you must be smoking something illegal. i don't know him or you, I just think you aught to continue with the technical data and leave the namecalling out of it.
