    An OCC likely won't help with your Hemi tick but it will keep gunky vented oil / condensation / carbons and unburnt fuel out of your intake .
    For the hemi tick you should do some reading here

    Synthetic Oil

    Hope this helps !

    High vacuum scenarios are where you will build the most fluid in a catch can in N/A engines. The PCV is closed at idle but off-idle and low RPM driving where you are generating high intake manifold vacuum but not enough to keep the PCV closed is where it will develop the most build up. Cold engines with poor ring seal and high condensation levels will also increase the rate of build up. High RPM driving will also generate a lot of fluid through windage and blow-by however vacuum is lower, this is less of an issue on N/A engines but becomes a much larger issue with boosted engines.

    3k miles with the CC, had it since I had around 200 miles.

    This may be around 3 dumps total?

    Ha , I'm collecting mine in a bottle also , I think I may send it out to Blackstone labs for an analysis, just to see the fuel and water contamination levels ...

    Yeah... I just wanted to track it for a bit, I try to empty it regularly while performing a few preventative checks.

    Why the hell did Chrysler design the motor to have these harmful vapors back into the engine?

    And if this is what happens does not everyone have one of these?

    I bought a 2012 with 65k miles as second owner. Truck is ridiculously clean and well maintained but did have some dried lack dust on inside of TB when I installed K&N CAI. I hope its not too late...Here I come again Moe's :/ My wife is gonna kill me :)
