Good info for all to read, and you can test ANY catchcan like this and see how ineffective or effective a can is. I urge ANYONE with a Moroso, Mike Norris, or similar small billet unit to try this and you will be amazed how much still gets past to be ingested. You can't judge a cans function just because it catches oil....even a beer can with 2 fittings will catch oil, it is what gets pulled through and still ingests that tells the story or your just using a can for the "placebo effect" and you may feel good, but it is doing little to correct the issues caused by the oil ingestion. :thumbsup:

Note!! Top hole in the RX PCV barb drill mod should be 1/8" and the 2 bottom holes 5/64".

Cheers!

Bump again for those not up on all of this.

We are finding nearly ALL LLT's have the foul, or dirty side barb clogged similar to what is shown and that is increasing oil consumption and if not checking oil level yourself every few fill ups, low oil and engine failure is a result.

Tranny will hold the power. As for the install of the Catch Can, very simple to do. Get one. The sooner the better.

Tracy knows more about proper crankcase ventilation then anyone I know. And when it comes to DI engines, he is the man to talk to. Here are pics of my latest ultimate catch can install. I chose the Elite Engineering catch cans. I am using (2) cans for the ultimate in oil removal. I have a twin turbo LLT DI and the oil contamination issues are ridiculous on these engines. Without a catch can, these engine get coated with oil in the intake and on the valves resulting in poor performance and a nightmare when it's time to clean this ingested crap from the intake valves. Tracy was instrumental in educating me about this subject and when I first purchased my Camaro, I installed his catch can and I was surprised the first time I emptied it. A half cup of oil!!!! That was in 2010. I am updating my system with the latest and greatest system and components. I looked at everything on the market and most were simple, cheap cans with a hefty price tag. In my opinion, only (3) companies had catch cans worthy of the expenditure and function. Out of those (3) companies, I choose Elite Engineering because after looking at internal designs of all, it was my opinion that the Elite had the edge. So, I purchased (2) cans, which I admit is serious overkill, and mounted them under the headlights as shown in my pictures. Elite Engineering catch cans come with a great way of universal mounting options and the kind of superior quality that I expect for my high end and expensive Twin Turbo Camaro. With these at work, I won't have to worry about ANY oil getting to my intake system.

As always awesome every part of this car is unreal. Make sure to post this is Elite's latest design, the E2-X series and these are the E2-X Ultra! Can't wait to see more of the build as that LFX drops in.

Thanks for the compliments! Yes, we are getting close to the LFX transplant. Hopefully Feb/Mar 16. Right now finishing modifications and readying the new LFX engine as it patiently waits on the engine stand in my shop. Doing as much as possible in order to minimize downtime when ready. Also, doing vehicle modifications as well, while I have the time. We've done all we can to bring the chances of this working as high as we can. Only thing left is to just do it and try it. A bit nervous, to say the least. Attached are pictures of the 2010 Twin Turbo LLT and new LFX engine. Note the fuel filter GM forgot and the remote oil filter adapter along with many other modifications.

Vince at Trifecta will hopefully do the new tune and has been instrumental in helping with the compatibility issues and engine modifications that will make tuning a bit easier. Special thanks to Tracy, as well, for double checking me on this conversion potential and putting together the very best PCV system that money can buy. Time will tell.

Bumping this back up as any V6 owner with the black plastic valve covers needs to perform the drill mod as described here. All late 2013 and up LFX with the cast aluminum valve covers will already have this design from the factory.
