    catch cans

    I have never dealt with catch cans before. Is it normal for people or manufacturers to drain catch cans back into oil pan? Seems counter productive. I know that r&d vent kit has its own catch can but even with it would some fuel/oil vapor get into factory catch can and condensate back to liquid and then drain into oil pan? If my understanding is correct (which i may be wrong lol) the job of a catch can on an force inducted motor is to keep oil from getting into intake air as the vent from the motor crank case is vented ultimatly back into the intake air tube. What about stoping the factory catch can from draining back into the oil pan and just empting if every so often.

    Jack,
    Look on Skips webpage. I think he has a pic on there of a catch can cut in half.
