jsherv is on a distinguished road
Is there already a catch can and it should be replaced or are you talking about needing to add one all together?

Re: Changing to bigger tires

You would need to add one. IMO, they are essential on any late model Hemi because of the crappy PCV System contaminating the combustion tract from intake manifold through to the catalytic converters and O2 Sensors.

Re: Changing to bigger tires

Below is a little quote about the use of catch cans on Hemi's from Mike at Diablosport, the tuner manufacturer. This was in response to someone asking about the benefits of a catch can. Here's what he had to say:

"No, this is where I comment on lost power due to oil contamination in the intake tract/combustion chamber. I will assure you that after having seen as many logs of as many HEMIs as we have here at DiabloSport, not to mention the numerous HEMI vehicles we have had on our dyno for R&D, I can say, without a doubt, that the HEMI's PCV/Oil Vapor control is the worst of anything we deal with. All you have to do is pull your intake manifold to see the puddles of oil collected in there, and realize that it eventually gets in the combustion chamber, and oil don't like to burn, thus, detonation occurs.

There is no gimmick here. HEMI's have KR issues. The KR issues are 99% of the time contributed to by oil contamination in the intake charge, reducing the effective octane in the combustion chamber, and leading to a loss of performance.

Plenty of people have seen solid power gains on even stock vehicles when getting rid of an oil issue by adding a catch can that works properly."

If you are not familiar with the acronym, "KR", it means, "Knock Retard" caused by pinging/detonation. The engine computer (PCM) retards the timing anytime it detects KR.
