A catch can is used between the PCV valve and the intake manifold to catch oil blow-by and prevent it from gunking up the throttle body and the intake manifold. Especially with the Hemis, they're notorious for oil getting into the combustion chambers.

Re: Seafoam Throttle Body/Intake Cleaner

I used seafoam and cleaned the throttle body this week in my WK also! I got a little bit of smoke but not a lot. The thing that got me was the throttle body. I gut my jeep used and apparently the folks before were into cheap gas. Here are the before and after of the throttle body. And when I did the seafoam I just slowly poured it directly into the TB blade into the intake. The induction system sucked it right in. Probably not the best way but it worked Now if i could just get rid of this "hemi" tick...
