There are ways to filter your PCV system better, a huge catch can is a start. There are filters for some diesels that could be used as well, but if the RPM's are high enough, often enough, and the car doesn't run too rich, you should be fine.
yeah...i think 7500 is a good mark to change the oil at.

with regard to the PCV...i know that someone (Rob Beck) makes an upgraded PCV valve for our cars....but i honestly have no knowledge of how it improves over stock or if its even worth the upgrade. i just found out about it a month or so ago and still doing some research. i did ditch my old catch can for a better one (bigger inlet/outlet diameter, shorter runs of tube, etc.).

So are OCCs worth it in your opinion? I've gone back and forth on it for a while. Which one did you switch too? Do you think that will help prevent the issues with the carbon build up? My car is bone stock so does it make more sense for a modded car? Sorry for all the questions...still learning a lot about this car.

OCC will help when it comes to the carbon built up on the valves. However it is not a 100% solution. The carbon will build up, the OCC will help prolong the process. The OCC is good, because it will also help keep the oil out of your FMIC.

As for the oil, I stick with 5k miles. I am old school when it comes to oil I guess. If our spark plugs were not so expensive, I would change them out every 2nd oil change, but it seems like these plugs last for awhile.

J&J powdercoating seems to do good work.

Speaking of powder coating, what about doing the exhaust tips? I don't know if its possible to do the tips without having to remove the exhaust. I'm tired of trying to keep them clean.

That's a good question. Since Nathan moved on, I held off on getting my inspection done (was due in Sep 12) until I could de-mod. I don't know that I can trust anyone else at CF, and since I leased new, I'm going to CF to get my inspection. My first major service interval is due as well, just went over 12K miles.

I only have intakes, and the JB4 on the car. I was wondering if I would be able to pass inspection.

I'm sure someone here way more knowledgeable than I will chime in, but I don't see why you wouldn't be able to pass inspection with only those mods installed.

Perfect, I just don't want to turn the JB4 off. Than have to have the JB4 relearn again.
