Forgive me for my ignorance, but what benefit does one get from this? Would I benefit?

The pcv line carries oil and vapors into the intake manifold plenum to burn them up. I don't want them burnt up and gunking in my damn engine.

It should make the engine last longer since the solids that are in the vapors from the crankcase won't be going back inside the engine.

thats kind of small...
i'd expect that to fill in 450-500 miles...
not big enough for my needs...
did you see any bigger filters at HD...?
there's usually $20 shipped deals on ebay for larger units...

I'm not turbo, so I don't expect it to fill up that fast. I'd end up losing like a quart every change, which I def don't. Rick (rh77) has the same one as me and his isn't full yet after 1-2k, I think he's done.

But yes, they do have bigger filters, I didn't look at the size though.

also i haven't had a catchcan setup since i was in my metro

Damn, I've never seen one will up so fast, :p

I sure hope mine doesn't.

hmm...well now that i think...
i bought one of these mpg devices to try out...
it mixed catchcan hydrocarbons with a small fuelline tap...
which might have created more "pull" into the chamber...

it didn't work for crap...
but here's a link for reference
