    What's inside your catch can?

    What is the normal color of the liquids in your catch cans? After some winter mods, I took my ski out for the first time yesterday. LAst season, the liquid was more of a white/milky substance. YEsterday, mostly black!

    ANy thoughts?

    Thanks... Does anyone know why the colors would change to a more black color? And, it seems like its of a thicker liquid, as opposed to watery... I did change wheels on my charger..and added some fuel...

    Empty is good, means you have no blow by on your rings. Guys think about this, the catch can is now doing what a PVC valve does car on engines since 1959. Positive crankcase ventalation. You are now dumping your blow by, moisture, etc. into a can instead of introducing this back into the engine for burning. Strickly an emission control device and I know everyone on this site is worried about ecology right and not speed right?

    Of course!!! That's why we use the catch can instead of blowing that crap into the water!!! But as for sending it back through the intake to clog everything up.... How about no!!!!
