    I have two track days and many mountain road miles on my GT350. I pulled out 38 ML of oil from the passenger side and the drivers side was fairly dry. Does that seem like a "normal" amount or less? The oil is fine and is right at the top of the 1st cross mark of the dipstick. I "guestimate" about 4500 miles worth of driving and only 1 oil change in between. TIA.

    I've never seen any oil in the drivers side catch can and that is what I've heard from others. The amount you have in the passenger side is in line with what I have had collected.

    I pulled almost 70mL after my two tracks events and 5000 miles. The driver's side only had a residue.

    Thanks for the feed back. Sounds like it's doing just fine.

    Drivers side has been vapors only besides when I went to mid Ohio, got about an ounce out of it. Passenger about the same as you.

    Thanks. I’ve never had catch cans so wasn’t sure what is “normal” or excessive

    My first experience with them also.

    Only reason I got them is they were recommended in all the FP materials for track work.

    Nice, If I was doing this again I'd go this route and remove the plastic covers like you have.

    These are the ones on the FP350S? I didn't know they were selling these yet. I tried to find them on their website and can't find them. Do you have the link?
