The top of the catch cans have a coarse wire mesh that the vapor has to pass through. The vapor deposits itself onto the mesh and then eventually runs down and into the bottom of the can.

Lonewolf,
Not sure what your asking, if your installing a catch can for the first time, nothing will be running out, or requiring a clean up. If your removing your TB, same thing, nothing is going to run out and there are no puddles to deal with..... To clean up your TB, use a good carburetor spray cleaner like Gumout etc.....If your asking about what the catch can catches, it's all liquid engine oil.....If you carefully unscrew the catch can container, you should not spill or loose anything...might get a drop or two of oil from the catch can housing when the container while the container is removed.... I suggest removing the container about every 3 thousand miles for empting and cleaning, as thats about the milage it takes to fill up the container......Hope this answers your questions

What I mean is I have NOT been running a CC since I first got my truck and there is around 10,000 miles on her now. So I'm guessing (from what I hear on here) there's going to be a nice collection (puddle) of oil sitting on the bottom of my intake not just on the bottom of the TB. Now since I will be installing a CC next week I know there will be no future oil collecting in my intake so I would like to get rid of the current collection of oil that has accumulated from NOT running a CC yet.

Thank you though for trying to understand what I meant. How would you get rid of that collection of oil?

LoneWolf,
Currently, without a Catch Can, there will NOT be any oil accumulation in your intake system.....The oil you will be catching once you install your catch can, currently gets introduced into your TB as an oily vapor, is mixed with incoming air, and taken into the combustion chamber to be burned up with your normal air/fuel mixture. Once you have your catch can installed this oily vapor, will condense back into liquid oil and be taken into the CC container.....Thus you will no longer be burning this oil in your combustion chamber, allowing a better air/fuel mixture....So don't worry about any mess to clean up....If you wish, as mentioned, you can clean your TB....as these get dirty normally anyway, and its a good time to do it while your working in that area

When I installed a catchcan on my used Dodge Magnum with the 5.7, I found an increadibly dirty throttle body and oil puddled in the intake manifold. Some of the oil vapor will condense in the intake manifold over time and accumulate in puddles if there are any crevices in there. At the time I used a rag to get what I could, careful to not leave ANYTHING in there to get sucked into the engine (parts of the rag or even lint off a low quality rag). There was no way for me to do a good cleaning job without removing the intake manifold, which was more work than I was willing to do. With my Ram I put the catchcan on the day I took it home and when I recently installed Moes 85mm throttle body my original TB was spotless and so was the intake manifold. Pooling oil was my experience with my 2006 Magnum with the 5.7 Hemi, maybe the Ram is different...

This is what I mean. I hear two completely different stories on this on here. I'll report back if I find a puddle too are just a dirty TB.

BTW I wasn't yelling NOT (if u thought I was) there seemed to be a miscommunication on what I already had are didn't have. Thanks though for trying to clear this up.

I installed my S&B intake this weekend @ 3000 miles on my Ram. The TB looked spotless. I hope I can hold out for the BT 40% off sale in Nov. I really don't want to spend ~$150 for this mod.
