Default Catch cans?

Hi all
Been a while since I have been able to log on but happy to be back. I tried to do a search on the forum and did not come up with anything so I thought I would post to see if I could get some feedback. Anyone with supercharged Z's out there using catch cans? I have done some research online and it seems like using one could very well keep the throttle bodies and the intake much cleaner. Thoughts? Pros? Cons?

Thanks!!

I'm using SOHO'S catch can combo set up. Works great. No cons.

Try going to one of the web search engines and add "site:the370z.com" to your search string. Eg, catch can site:the370z.com

I use Mishimoto catch cans. Easy to install and love it.

Hey scroupious,
Are you supercharged or naturally aspirated? I looked at the Mishimoto setup and the supercharger appears to take up too much space on the driver's side to mount that can.

The SOHO can looks like a real nice unit however it is not going to fit with the charge tube in place.

I got mine on eBay for about $30 each. They are baffled, I just added some steel wool, which works to capture the blow-by.
I purchased the steel braided lines and clamps on Amazon and did my own custom install. My Z is N/A, but they still capture blow-by.

Redondoaveb is running a blower and the soho kit. Is your setup different?

Yeah, my setup is a little different since I still have the water based intercooler that Stillen provides with the kit therefore my charge tube goes right along the front (for now). Maybe I will have to wait until I change my setup. The SOHO setup looks really good.
