Catch cans catch any oil vapors,thus preventing them from being pushed into the combustion chamber.Not only will oil residue coat the IM laminova cores and not allow them to cool the air charge as efficiently,when oil vapor gets in the combustion chamber,it reduces fuel octane.So any oil you can catch before it hits the intake manifold is a good thing.

I ran a breather filter right off the valve cover and you could smell all the fumes in the car.

Yeah I wish it did

I wouldn't mind having an oil cooler, maybe one day

As far as what's into the engine at the moment...about $3500. It's not that expensive to supercharge and build an L61

Thanks, yeah never really got to experience the build like I should have before it went down due to me having a stock clutch but I can't wait to get everything back together again

After that I never want to do another engine build

I don't necessarily know if I even need one at this point, just trying to cover all my bases and make sure my oil is A1 at all times...don't want to spin another bearing

That's as far as I got. Next plan is to put my new block on the stand and break it down completely so she can get new bearings, bolts, hone and forged rods/pistons from old block

Still need to break down my new block so I can throw my forged pistons/rods and new bearings and stuff in there.

Oh and I finally got my replacement Eagle rod (and rod bolts) for the cylinder that spun the bearing

On a side note, installing valve springs was freakin tedious because of those stupid keepers! What a pain in the ass

Yeah man the ****** valves would keep getting pushed down when I was trying to compress the spring or when I was releasing it, the spring would come up at an awkward angle and pop off the keepers that I just spent 10min. lining up
