Hello everyone. So I know there are threads saying that oil catch cans on a 9-3 SS are worthless. That is very incorrect in my opinion. Now, a low mileage perfect engine, maybe not. But there will always be some oil and carbon pass through the system of any car, especially direct injected vehicles. I Installed a catch can on my 2003 linear and the results are good. Now I know I know, maybe I have a issue with my PCV system. But as many people know, the pcv is internal. So in a sense yes a catch can is not worthless. As seen in the picture, you can see the oil sitting on the baffle ( I already removed the media). That may not be a lot, but that's only been on the car for about a month. And only like 1k miles. Over time that can become a lot of oil. For me, I'd rather catch it than have it go through my turbo and intercooler.
