it's to keep oil from getting in the intake manifold.

you want a billet prototypes catch can. my buddy with the 402 had a cheap catch can on his and it let an insane amount of oil into his intake manifold. also while you're at it do the throttle body coolant bypass.

which is? so this 100 bucks is worth it eh? cuz it seems like its expensive as balls for a cup.

he's definitely getting one now even though they're expensive. plus they look great. i'd get it and do it right the first time.

and some emissions bullcrap where the coolant goes through the throttle body to heat it up.

What Mike said. They're soso and don't really do much other than keep the excess oil residue out of the intake manifold. If you ever go FI these are needed, if not, theyre nice to have but dont do much.

Dude don't pay a ton for a catch can, unless you want something flashy, I plan on making one for the accord using an old Folger can, 2ft of hose, and 2 clamps....thats it...

All a catch can is, is a "can" routed in-line with your vacuum source that "catches" any oil that might find its way past your valve cover baffling. Can be made from almost anything.

What about those exhaust evacuation kits instead?

Might as well use a beer can in your engine bay, that won't look trashy.

Youve never seen the beer catch can?

I'd think the aluminum would be too flimsy, unless both ports were in the top.

I think I need one for the 6. I see oil build up in the throttle body. It seems to build up not too long after clean it out.

The catch can not only prevents oil from entering the intake manifold, it also slows carbon deposits on the valves and pistons. This helps you to run more timing without KR.
The GTO can't use a breather on the catch can, it negates the vacuum source that pulls the dirty air from the crank case. You'll end up with a DTC.
Billet Specialties makes a great catch can.
