The catch can "catches" oil that comes from your PCV valve into your throttle body and eventually into your intake. You see no performance gains, but it keeps your engine running cleaner. There are several manufacturers of catch cans, but I went with the Billet Tech. I just don't like the idea of oil getting in my intake. That's less room for fuel and air. Basically, it's a $150 mod that makes me feel better.
It catches oil that "backs up", the system originally has it just go through the intake assembly via the PCV valve, but that can actually reduce the longevity of your engine. So it's like Bocephus said, it's $150 peace of mind

Damn I'm trying to find just those tips, the cutouts on the bumper just beg to be filled in with larger exhaust tips lol
