Let's say you're drag racing within earshot of a cemetery, and earlier that day there was a burial of an old gear-head from way back. Well once his ghost hears all that noise and smells the burning rubber, he's gonna waft over to take a look. Then BAM, he ventures a little too close and gets sucked into one of the car's engines as it's making a run down the track. Now what?
Well, the normal fix for that problem is to pay the local mechanic to perform a PEE by tearing down the engine and manually extracting that old gear-head's ghost with whatever fancy machine they use to do such tasks. But I've heard that can run north of $2K on some cars, depending upon how stubbornly entrenched the ghost is and intent on staying put.
But by running a CC, you can avoid that hassle and expense. As the ghost circulates through the running engine, doing whatever it is they do inside there, they'll eventually end up in the CCV system and get sucked through the PCV line and into the catch can, where they will be trapped until you can empty out the can and set them free.
I don't know about you, but I don't have an extra $2K laying around to be paying for PEEs, so I'll be running the CC on all my cars instead!
