    I checked mine today and it shows signs of blowing oil residue on the valve cover and some nearby hoses. The filter on the breather was a little wet with oil. I removed the breather and put the stock filler cap back on.

    I did have several WOT freeway entry’s prior to checking under the hood
    It turned out to be a little more than I thought. My bone dry pan for 50k miles has oil all over it and the underneath area under the engine has a nice Afro-sheen glaze. This is gonna take a while to clean up. Big ole mess!

    I feel like this breather is a good idea in theory but too messy in practice with it venting straight into the engine bay.
    Looks like we need a third catch can now lol jk but maybe instead of a filter that will vta, a hose to an existing catch can or a catch can with three inlets instead of 2

    For a while I had my Full Race catch can vented to atmosphere. There was a steady stream of vapor coming out of it at all times, and there would be a ton of crud build up inside the rear bumper, which was where I had the exit routed to through a breather filter.

    When I first got my Rx Catch Can, there was no "Clean Side Separator" and I had to run a breather to make the whole system work best. And yes, every month I have to clean off my covers etc.

    I DO have a "Clean Side Separator" where the "breather" is sealed and the fumes go straight into the air cleaner to keep everything clean. I hate the thought of cutting a hole in my CAI, but I am looking at this now because I have found those "breathers" break apart over time. I have gone through two already (a different version). I was hoping this was going to work, to replace another bad breather.

    It brings back bad memories of driving 1960s cars that all had breathers and no PCV systems. At least you could power wash them without screwing up an expensive sensor.

    Sorry all been busy and had a chance to take these today....... 620 miles down and not a trace or drop of oil blow by..... for me, I'll continue to run and monitor the breather and if there is a benefit to release the pressure under boost, I'll take that too... I will update in another couple of weeks!

    To those that had a lot of oil on the motor. Did you do a lot of wot or heavy foot driving? That could be why some are finding the breather messy and some are not. More blow by and therefore more air under pressure coming out of the breather
