Well I did use the search function and took 15 min to find this:
http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....ighlight=catch
Which is the only one that explains it so far that I have found- most talk about it on this forum discuss it like you already know what it is.. that is the frustrating part - I don't. I did find that explaination now - is it a poor design or? Why would Ram make it that way. I have never heard of a catch can before and certainly did not have one on any other past vehicle. Odd.

Okay- I'll summarize.
Do you need one - nope
Is it pretty cool- yep
Does it prevent oil vapors from being sent to and through the throttle body to be burned off, and therefore keep the TB clean- yep
Do most Ram owners with Hemi engines have one- nope
Do a lot of folks around here (the forum) have em- yep
How come Dodge or RAM do not include this seemingly important simple item as a stock feature if it helps-- near as I can figure- most folks would forget to empty it-- it would overflow and it would cause more problems than it would solve.
Full disclosure- I have one- love it- am constantly amazed how much oil is in there when I pull it every 60 days.
Keep searching and you'll find more useful info.

Someone should just compile the catch can info on this board and sticky it in the engine and performance section.
Im sure it will still be missed, but atleast there is easy reference

But spoiler....great summary
