    Re: Catch Can Install

    The Airraid is next on the agenda! I'm going to put the RX spacer on also but that'll probably wait until next spring.

    I got the TB direct from RX Performance (SC2150 on the forums). If you're thinking about it stop thinking and pull the trigger - it's well worth it, specially if you have an AWD CTS. Power under 2500 rpms is actually usable now and the torque delivery is so much more linear from idle all the way to redline. After a tad over 3000 kms with the new TB i'm also seeing about a 2 mpg increase in fuel economy, which is an added bonus!

    Excellent ncscons.

    This has probably been the hardest forum to be a vendor on as far as the attacks and rudness & I have about given up. These are the results we want to see. Those that have tried the products and can document they do as advertised.

    Don't give up on us SC! There's at least one goof in every crowd - best bet is to just ignore 'em

    Thats guys.

    We and Mace in Australia (who we work close with) are two of the few companies developing performance parts for these motors (as well as we have developed and manufactured V8 parts for the past 10 plus years) and there are more in the works we will release as we prove they do as designed.

    Just installed the catch can and throttle body from RX Performance. Both very simple and straightforward. Catch can is of high quality, fitment is well engineered and the instructions were right on. Ported throttle body well worth the investment. Highly recommended as I am very pleased with the products, installation and especially the customer service.

    Re: Catch Can Install

    Here is a 3.6 DI that has had the RX catchcan system on since a few thousand miles....(7k miles ago). No oil in the intake, and almost zero build up on the intake valves. Its in getting heads and cams and tune:

    I've been M.I.A. for a bit, but I felt compelled to check back in on this catch can subject. My wife has put about 6-7k miles on the car since installing the RX catch can. Consumption was an additional qt and half over that time.

    I changed the oil yesterday and drained the can. I was shocked to see about 5-6 oz of oil come pouring out. I can't thank Tracy enough for the education he's given me on this engine, and my 3.6 DI intake manifold thanks him too.

    The next oil change, I'm gonna make a video, so those that are on the fence can make a more informed decision. Running without a catch can on this engine, is a disaster waiting to happen at some point. Unless you frequently do an upper intake cleaning, get a can folks.

    Thanks man.

    The problem w/too many upper induction cleanings is everytime you break the deposits loose some do get pulled between the piston and cylinder walls causing minor scouring and over time that will increase oil useage and blow by.

    Re: Catch Can Install

    It doesn't look like my 08 has as much room to play with in front as the 2011. And not wanting to restrict air flow, I went to the rear of the right wheel well and had plenty of room for my catch can install.

    No, I have DI AWD.
    I learned a difference recently when I bought intake manifold gaskets. Naturally, I bought the wrong ones. If anyone needs a set for the non DI, I have a new set cheap.
