Oil catch can

This is how much oil was in my catch can after 5K miles, looks like a few ounces. Proves it works.

They are great to have, check it every few thousand so there is no chance of it sucking liquid in. At 1500 miles I have an inch at least in the cup.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

I checked mine after around 350kms; cannot wait to see what happens at 5000 kms.

This is off my 16 RT.

So, I posted awhile back about how I was looking into getting one of these and then I read that people were getting warranties voided and having VIN's flagged for even the slightest changes...kinda made me nervous so I stopped and didn't buy one. Any clarification on this?

I took my car in for the first oil change to synthetic at the dealer at 2k. I brought in my Speedlogix catch can, showed it to the service manager and asked if there were any warranty problems running a catch can, he told me no. There is no problem that can can cause. So I took my car home after the oil change and installed it.
There are many Challengers out there with 200k plus miles and the owners never heard of a catch can, does it make a difference, I don't know for sure, But it can't hurt

The absence of a catch can will not damage your engine. The issue is engine efficiency. It prevents a build up of oil residue that can result in a loss of power to your engine, over time, due to PCM-pulled timing.

During normal operation, a small amount of that ignited air/fuel mixture leaks past the piston rings and ends up in the crankcase. This leakage is called “blow-by” (leakage past the piston rings), as well as oil mist. Some of the oil mist and other products settle along the engine intake and over time form a “gunk.”

The oil catch can collects the oil mist and condenses the fuel vapors while allowing “cleaner” gases to be passed back into the intake. The OEM system does a great job of meeting emission standards and removing the harmful contaminants, but the unintended consequences are the oil that is drawn into the intake charge. For an engine to produce the maximum amount of energy per explosion (of the A/F in the combustion chamber) you want air & fuel only- any amount of oil in this mix will hamper the explosion resulting in less energy released, detonation, and carbon buildup.

Trapping and removing this oil before it gets into the combustion chamber is the only solution to maintain maximum engine efficiency and prevent excessive carbon buildup. (Note- This is especially critical on turbo cars).

Do we know what the oil from the factory is? Are you saying its not synthetic and probably some sort of "break in" oil? Almost to 2k miles now and was plannin one getting that initial batch of oil and metal shavings removed around then as well.

"Special break in oil" is a myth. The 6.2 and 6.4 SRTs come from the factory with with full synthetic Pennzoil Ultra 0-40W. Previously, Mobil 1 0W40 was recommended for the 6.1. The 5.7s come with standard 5W20 "dino" oil (because of MDS).

Just do the initial oil change somewhere between 500 and 1,500 miles, using a quality oil with the correct viscosity for your engine. That's the time when most manufacturers recommend that the car first be serviced. And even if your manufacturer doesn't recommend an oil change then, it's a good idea to do it anyway since tiny metal particles can come off the inside of the engine during break-in. Although these particles may be so small that you can't even see them, they can be abrasive and destructive when they're circulated through the engine.
