Diablo Catch Can ReviewOctober 14th, 2010 by admin
The 5.7 Hemi, named after its hemisphere-shaped combustion chambers, has been Dodge’s go-to motor since the 1960s, has been used in NASCAR, and has been modified and developed all the way through today. The newer trucks with the 5.7 have PVC, which sends any unburned gas from the crankcase back into the throttle body and can cause minor horsepower loss and sludge buildup.
Diablo has solved this issue simply with a billet aluminum can attached to a mount bracket and rail with an inlet and outlet. The install takes about 5 minutes and can be done with a simple wrench and socket.
The Diablo Catch Can goes in the PVC line and will catch any oil or gas that tries to get pumped back into the motor. Since the install of this part, I have noticed it takes about 3-4 weeks for the can to get about 1/2 full. I have also noticed that the engine feels a bit smoother and there has been a small increase in MPG.
