Trick Flow Oil Can

I just plumbed this in with my ME Wagner Dual Flow adjustable PCV valve.
It's been sitting collecting dust for a year or more,so today was the day to get this project off of the old "To Do" list,lol
I didn't have the proper fittings but I made do.
I gutted an old PCV valve for the top "out" hose to the back of the carb.
For the bottom I put a 5/8 hose on the 8 an fitting and put the 3/8 hose from the PCV valve inside the 5/8 hose.
Might not be the correct way to do it,but hopefully it will work until I can get the proper fittings.
Other than starting it to make sure that it still runs I haven't gone for a trial drive yet,but that will be soon.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

I have one with a catch can as well. Heres what it does. A tad pricey but at least you can set at idle and cruise and verify it. The others are just a guess with the springs.

I copied this from a Google search on oil can;
"The idea of an oil and air separator is to extract the oil from the air before it's sent back to the intake manifold and put it someplace where it won't cause a problem, either back in the crankcase or in a small receptacle called a catch can"
I found out about the Wagner adjustable PCV valve on here and it sounded like a good idea.
Once you get it dialed in as per the instructions they work great.
And the instructions are easy to follow and well written.
I'll be going on a four hour + trip on Sunday and will give an update then.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

Wouldn't it be simpler, easier, cheaper, and require less maintenance/attention to just baffle the PCV fumes so the oil doesn't get pulled through the PCV valve to begin with?

You know...like billions of OEM valve covers are built.

Your solution would NOT be my first choice.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

Trying to keep "contaminated" air out of the intake, would be my guess.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

Here's what a OEM baffled CTSV valve covered engine with a catch can.
Had one on the ol 406 (actually still on it in my sons 67 C10)and will have one with the new TT 441 sbc.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

Seems like when you see whats in the can, it sells itself, (the catch can).
The pcv valve is a great idea. Adjustable to a couple of situations and accurate above all else. How do you know the others are accurate?
Seems I have a few inches of crap oil in the catch can at the end of the season., with just street use.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

I think that a great idea, I put one on my wife's 2011 Silverado that was sucking oil into the intake. Stopped the oil problem completely, I just drain the tank when I change oil. Truck runs better also.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

Just wanted to update this thread.
So far I've put about 5-6 hours driving time in since I put the oil can on.
Even though there was nothing showing in the sight glass I drained it just to see how much came out,and there wasn't very much,a couple of drops at the most.
There would be more on the bottom that wont drain as the drain pipe sits off of the bottom of the can a little bit.
So it definitely works like its supposed and helps keep unwanted oil out of the intake.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

I had something similar on a work truck. After 3K mi there was about a cup of whatever in it. About 1/2 oil and 1/2 something else. The deal was it wasn't in the engine. I don't know if the engine heat would have burned off the stuff or not.

Re: Trick Flow Oil Can

I have a pair of Moroso cans on my CTSV with about 16.5 lbs of boost which work like a charm keeping oil out of the intake path.. I also have one on my '17 Raptor which is running a bit more boost than stock and it will accumulate a half cup of oil in about 2000 miles. I've never used one on a N/A engine, although it makes sense if you're running a rowdy setup.

Five or six hours of running, and you prevented "a couple of drops at the most" of "contamination" from getting into the intake manifold.


Seems like a total waste of time, money, effort, and enthusiasm to me.


Again, billions of vehicles do just fine with the "contamination" in the manifold. It's not like you're going to cook food inside the thing.


There is some small percentage of worn-out junk that genuinely has too much blowby--but stuffing a catch-can under the hood of one of them is not an appropriate fix for a totaled engine.
