LOL... It was bad enough sticking my nose in there to smell it.

Thanks, I'm very happy as well! Should have done something with this issue a long time ago, especially considering how easy of a fix it is.

That's great to see, Lance. Thanks for the follow up. I hope my catch can setup works as well.

I'm running the MightyMouse configuration on my car as well. I have a Scott Shafiroff 540 Ultra Street with Holly HP MPI.

-12AN from passenger VC to dirty side inlet of catch can
-6AN clean line to 1/4npt in front of the intake just under the throttle body.

This system works very well on my application.

So I can't remember the last time I drained my catch can...probably after Midwest Musclecar last May. After making 3-4 6,000 RPM blasts per run for about 20 runs at Good Guys couple weeks ago, I figured it would be a good time to check it.

This is what came out...



It's probably 90-95% condensation water with very little oil in it.

Not only that, but the engine has completely quit using or loosing oil as well.

It's really nice when a well designed part does exactly what it is supposed to do, fixes an age old issue. So simple too...

Thanks Mighty Mouse...

I bought one for a 427" LS corvette at the shop. If that works out Mighty Mouse will be my go to solution for just about everything.

It still defies conventional theory as I understood it but it obviously works.

Update us on how it works for you Donnie. I know about 10 guys now running them and they all swear by them. Good luck with it...

Did you tell David who sent you?

Default Evac kit

I have run tanks from the valve covers for years
Stop running breathers on the valve covers as they
tend to leak if you are spinning things at 7500 rpm
I have found that if you keep each side separate they
tend to dump things out.. if you tie them together then
it balances things out

The ones on the Pantera dump into a T and then to a catch tank
I empty it usually when I change the oil which is before I go to
a track event.. it will smoke slightly if I go hammer it for a while
then idle along afterwards

The ones on the Bird hit a tank also but I also have a T
that goes to the carb with a pvc valve between... never
drain that tank or have smoke coming out of the breather
That's on a 494 cubic inch engine with a 750 lift cam
and 1050 cfm carb so lots of flow going somewhere
