Got my catch can installed last thursday and after about 300 miles I checked it and couldnt believe how much oil was in it, amazing. I dumped out probably a tablespoon or better of oil.

I sprayed a Q-tip with WD40 and swabbed my hose ends and they slipped right on all the way to the end with no problem.

Thinking about getting one of these for my truck. Any body got any dealer feedback on the install? Positive or negative?

Well I would think that it definately wouldnt be negative, Crap most of the dealers/mechanics wouldnt even know it was there unless you told them and then pointed it out to them,,lol.

Default Very Pleased!!

Man, these things work great. I have had mine on for about 3 weeks. Here are a couple of pics of the nasty contents after 1200 miles. The can is about 20% full. Not a ton of crap but enough that in the long run should make a big difference.

It is a filter that catches all the "stuff" shown in the above pictures that would normally go back into the engine to be burned off. I guess that stuff ends up coking and clogging up in the engine over time. This just slows that down a bit.
Here is mine installed

I sprayed some WD40 on the ends of the tubes and pushed as hard as I could to the fittings on the truck. I could only get them about 1/2 inch too. And I was pushing hard enough to shake the truck.
