Catch Can on 3.6L?

I see a lot of info on installing a catch can on a hemi or V-8 but not much info on 3.6L. Anybody install one on a V6 and was it worth it?

Thanks

Re: Catch Can on 3.6L?

I installed a billet tech one on mine a couple months ago as well...but only because I needed it for the supercharger-

I was getting a fair amount of blow by from the supercharger system

I've got a N/A 3.7 in my 2008 and put a catch can on it. Collects a fair amount between oil changes and I've got a new pcv installed. I know its a different motor but a can can only help you out in the long run

Re: Catch Can on 3.6L?

I shared a drawing with billet tech with my catch can install and they stated they would include it with every purchase of catch can for 3.6L.

That should help you.

I have two 3.6 l trucks that run the same oil one has a can the other does not and the one with out the can consumes more oil.

My can also has the addition of the UPR catch can diffuser for a billet tech can .

Interesting...
I don't have a catch can and have no intention on installing one.
Why?
I've got 35k miles and I've never had to add oil between oil changes because the level never drops (and I go 8k between changes with synthetic oil).
I've heard too many stories of people installing the catch cans and then complaining how they have found so much oil in the can between oil changes. My question is, would they have 'lost' that much oil if the catch can wasn't there? Is the catch can system drawing the oil out of the motor?

Just my $0.02, though I'm sure many people will shout me down.

No the oil vapors from the crank case get recycled back thru the intake. This is done as an emissions tactic. Problem is, oil doesn't burn too well. When this happens the ecu pulls timing because when the motor burns oil, it causes knock. When timing is pulled you lose both power and efficiency. Also all the oil vapor from the crank case will condense in the much cooler intake manifold dirtying everything up and further reducing efficiency over time.

A catch can does in fact work and in the case of the hemi, proven to improve efficiency and power. Tho the gains seen are only seen on a dyno. Its the piece of mind knowing your engine is running cleaner and more efficient

This is on my 3.7 that people swear up and down that it has a "great" pcv system.

This was in 2500 miles of installing the can and new pcv

Todd the only reason why I bothered to instal the catch can in the first place was in found oil on my air filter and in the intake tract.

The design of the can seems to catch alot of oil but now with the added UPR diffuser the an fills up slower.

So my guess is that the added restriction of the diffuser pulls less oil into the can than it used to.

I am sure driving style plays a role in it too.

I do alot of hilly driving as well so the RPMs can be elevated for extended times.
