Very interesting, conflicting opinions on Catch Cans, walks away mumbling to self over the confusion ... lol
for you certainly, let me know what area you would like more info on, also i try to cover the sharp points on the website.Lol I’m still confused.
MM for those of us that don’t know. Can you elaborate a bit more?
correct. the factory pcv (all factory pcv) has oil consumption on the suction side, which is where normal (and my mild) kit goes. when the vent side of the system is poor, or due to mods, inadequate, the wild system replaces it all to handle the power and correct pressure related issues. I have not once heard of any situation where gunk was loosened, and of course the can is there to catch anything before the manifold return.My take:
Its an issue of flow rate capacity. dBomm is correct about the stock system and that it is the best way (for a stock motor). I believe once you build the bottom end and push boost, the factory routing can be too restricted, through say, 4 ft of 3/8 line and Moroso catch can.
MM vents the crankcase pressure faster out the oil fill via the larger hose.
Again dBomm makes good point that you now have all the crap coming through the valvetrain this way and could loosen gunk from the valley cover.
it is firstly a functional solution, but i do understand cosmetics are important, once it works right we do what we can to sexy it up. keep in mind the install is almost always done by the owner, so how and well the job is done is not always what is supplied. also depending on what else the particular build has going on in the engine bay, things will get shuffled around and cramped. There is really only one 'new' hose for the wild version compared to what everyone else does, and if you are having a pressure related issue you would find it well worth being there. the mild system can be completely hidden.I mentioned this before but anyway I had a chance to see another persons V with a MM Wild set up in it. Other than the ZL1 Lid I couldn't see any of the motor at all because of all the hosing running around in the Engine Compartment. I thought WTF is all the hose in there so I asked him, he said it was the MM Wild CC Setup. I personally don't want all that hose in there, I would have to even locate the MM CC somewhere else besides where it is supposed to go behind the motor because I already have a Flex Fuel Filter mounter where the MM CC is supposed to go.
