    Here's a runner on a 22k mile 6.4 with a catch can.

    Visual evidence of my catch can doing exactly what I bought it to do.

    I agree catch cans are successful at collecting a portion(!) of aerated oil / water that resides in the crankcase.

    If you were to take your intake manifold off your car and saw the same oil residue as seen in punisher69's pics, that is present all the way to the intake valve, would you consider that an issue?

    Looks like fuel reversion.

    Why would I call that an issue? I don't expect a catch can to result in a bone dry intact track. Do you? That would be foolish to assume that would result.

    Catch cans

    Here’s mine after 38k , with the cheapest(used) catch can I could find for engine bling , because I’m well aware they are not needed on our engine. Direct port , sure , forced induction, sure. NA Hemi , no sir. But I got it for 60$ and it looks good. I don’t think the intake or the heads would look any different had I not had a can.
    Here’s the heads :

    IMO, catch cans do help, probably more in the winter months, especially in damp/wet weather areas. Here's mine off both my early Hemi's....05 LX (83K), and 06 Hemi Jeep with with just over 100K on it. I pulled them all to install new seats, port/polish and mill .030 in. off to increase the compression about a half point. The LX has run synthetic oil (Mobil One) since about 5K and had a catch can since about 10K. The Jeep most likely ran dino. oil without a catch can for the first 49K. After that it had nothing but Mobil One synthetic and a catch can. The crap in the intake ports of the Jeep heads was sticky....like crude oil. Notice the LX heads are almost totally clean and free of any crap.

    A few hairs drop on the dip stick would reflect a cup of oil.
