    Catch Can

    Anyone looking into installing a catch can on the 2.0T to help with carbon buildup in the intake valves?

    this is a good idea, i'd love to put in a very nice looking(oem looking) catch can.

    BUT unfortunately, if you've seen pictures of what BMWs N54 looks like even WITH catch can and alcohol injection, after some miles it's still not pretty. hopefully cadillac dealers are investing in some walnut blasters to clean those up under warranty! the gift and the curse of direct injection.

    Funny you mention the N54. I had a 335i, I know first hand. My catch can still caught a good bit of the oil, kept my fmic and charge pipe a bit cleaner. I walnut blasted my valves at 50k miles and they were not as bad as some guys with less miles and no catch can.
