    excessive blow by oil?

    i installed a catch can last week and after driving 300~ miles last night i decided to check if it had collected any oil. to my surprise it collected a lot of oil! ive noticed some people that complaint that their cat can didn't collect any oil, my concern is it collected too much oil in that short amount of time. i am happy to know that the catcan works and i now wonder if there's something wrong with the car?
    sorry for the crappy pic

    i appreciate the input LM, i will pull it out in 1,00 more miles and check it.

    i should also add that i have the RB pcv valve and i only add about 1 quart of oil between oil changes (6k-7k miles or so)

    it just means that you get on it your car and the catch can is working...Have to realize the people that stated they didnt see any oil in cc is because they granny their cars...Those of us who constantly go WOT will see alot of oil captured on our CC

    FWIW, i beat on my car pretty hard and haven't collected much oil. It seems some cars are worse than others, big tom's for example collects a lot but runs great.
