A few months back we waded into the debate of whether or not your Corvette needs a catch can after sharing a video of a mechanic adding one to his mid-engine LT2 V8. As I didn’t really have an opinion of them at the time, I thought maybe to ask my friend Paul about them the next time I saw him.
Turns out that I don’t have to wait until Corvettes of Carlisle to ask the Corvette Mechanic Paul Koerner about catch cans as he offered up one of his longest videos on the subject.
Paul pulls out the diagrams of various Corvette and Camaro/CTS engines and even utilizes a C8 Corvette’s oil pump and a C7 Corvette Z06 to illustrate his points. The bottom line is that if you have a dry-sump lubrication system, you already have a catch can:
