2) Based on the engine design with the centrifuge it is much less necessary than say the Hemi, which uses oil like a BP drilling station, but any oil you catch is potentially saving your engine *shrug*

That said I haven't put mine on for lack of confidence/clarification, I'm about to spend the cash to take it to the dealer and have him tell me where the damn thing is.
