Oil catch can worth it?

Is it worth buying? Is it effective and safer? Do you use one?

Some that have had theirs in, have seen very little to almost no accumulation of blow by even after 10k miles so this would be the same as the Intake for the car. Not needed in my opinion but up to you if you want it. You can search on Catch Can in this form and should bring up the posts.

It makes a big difference for some, on other cars it does not make any difference.
I would get it either way for piece of mind

As Mike said, peace of mind, and its dead simple to install and dealership doesn't care.
