Almost 2,000 miles, but relatively little liquid caught.

So is the collection on the Intake side still almost all water, or what percent oil as an estimation? I bought a pair of catch cans to do my Yukon and HHRSS. The one on the Yukon works great, but I haven't installed the one on the HHR, and now trying to decide if I really need two or would eliminate most oil in the intake by just doing the intake mod and 1 catch can. I am not using any noticable oil in the 5-6000 mile oil changes, but do see oil residue in the intake. At 96 k miles and an sure I need to clean the intake valves. Makes plenty of boost but doesn't have the zip it did.

Yes, both cans catch muck that is almost all water. I would not choose one over the other. One keeps muck from building up in the intercooler, the other keeps muck from building up on the valves.
