C5 AWC PCV Catch Can

 

This link provides info and install instructions for the AMW pcv catch can. This a great product for those who like to run their car pretty hard. It's purpose is to keep crankcase oil from being drawn into the intake track through the pcv system.

All LSX based engines have this issue if you run them hard.

AMW also makes a very nice bracket to mount the can on the front of the R/H cylinder head. The second link is how it looks installed on an LS1 in a GTO.

It mounts the same way on a vette.
