    I never heard of an oil catch can before today. Was wondering if anyone here uses one, what the benefit is, and if it’s even needed on a V6 without a CAI. Thanks.

    had one on my 2009 SE 3.5L V6 as well on my 2009 RT. they catch the oil that passes through the PCV system and you wont have oil dumping onto the intake.

    I noticed a highway mpg increase after installing one. Keeping oil out of the cylinders reduces detonation. Detonation causes the knock control feature of the ECM to retard the timing, reducing fuel mileage.

    Seriously?
    Damn computers :mf_pcwhack::angry94:

    But if I get much better gas mileage, it will be hard to call this thing a MUSCLE CAR?

    I really llike my '10 3.5L. It has enough scoot to get me in trouble, gets 28-29 mpg on the highway, and 18-19 in pure stop and go driving. Catch can, K&N air intake, and the 87 octane hemi fever tune. (The last had no effect on MPG, just makes the trans shift a lot better and the throttle more sensitive.)
