Post Catch-can Per Hemi Engineers

Per the Hemi Engineers in chat tonight, the catch-cans help the stock PCV and therefore is a good thing.

I don't think your '05 will take a catch can. It has an internal PCV system as opposed to the newer truck's external system.

A catch can is a filter/reservoir that catches oil that blows through the PCV system and would normally go back into the throttle body to be burned off in the dombusion chamber. The can traps this oil so it doesn't end up in the throttle body or chambers where it lowers the efficiency since it doesn't burn.
