    Re: Cruiser 76/79 V8 owners take note

    If I had to guess, and that is what it is, a guess, I would say after 50k km you will have some build up?

    Certainly wont be clean if there is no catch can or egr blanking.

    They do yes, but by fitting a catch can you are removing the "oil" out of the intake and allowing just the exhaust gasses.
