I have the same unit on my 2013 5.7 since new. It does catch oil for sure. I average about 100ml per 1000 kms or 3.3 oz per 600 miles. Worth the money to keep oil from your intake in my opinion.

Scantool Recomendations

Just wondering what people are using for scantools for the 2013 1500 rams. Don't necessarily want a programmer just a good scantool to read and reset trouble codes, cels, adjust tire size ect.
