    You're very welcome, and awesome, because in that case, you can read feedback from existing users by cliking the link above in my previous post, and checking out some of the 140 reviews from verified buyers of the product.

    There are several reviews from Kia Stinger owners there, and on our K8 Stinger Store site. Here are a few of them below:

    Has anyone installed an oil catch can? The K5 Optima store recommends it for the uncle lap3 chip, however I don't see this recommendation on the RafeChip website.

    Has anyone? We have sold dozens & dozens of catch cans to Stinger Owners over the past 6 months since our new site went live. We are also a reseller for RaceChip as well and will be adding their tuning product to our website shortly.

    However, whether or not a website recommends an oil catch can or not has nothing to do with whether or not it's beneficial for your vehicle. For starters, I would research and fully understand what an oil catch can is and why it's beneficial for any direct injection vehicle, especially a turbo direct injection vehicle like the Kia Stinger. Once you fully understand what the purpose of an oil catch can is and why it's beneficial to your vehicle, you'll see why having one after installing a tune is even more important to protect the life of your vehicle and prolong carbon buildup on your intake valves.

    RaceChip didn't originally recommend changing out your spark plugs when utilizing their tune either. However, after speaking with Tim the North American director of RaceChip, he decided to have them update the website to now show that they recommend upgrading your spark plugs as well. RaceChip is newer to the community with Kia and Hyundai, however, we have been working with Kia and Hyundai vehicles since 2012 with the K5 Optima Store company we run.

    If you have any specific questions on which catch can to go with, please feel free to reach out and ask anytime, as we are more than happy to help. We should be releasing vehicle specific catch can brackets with hoses and everything today, tomorrow or sometime this weekend to the website.

    Yes, lots of members have installed catch cans on their cars. Do a search for catch cans on this site and will find the info you need.

    It will be beneficial regardless if the car is tuned/chipped or not.

    Yup I agree 100%, which is why I had said:

    “Once you fully understand what the purpose of an oil catch can is and why it's beneficial to your vehicle, you'll see why having one after installing a tune is even more important to protect the life of your vehicle and prolong carbon buildup on your intake valves.”

    However, yes, any vehicle will benefit from having an oil catch can, especially a gasoline direct injection vehicle, or GDI/T-GDI.
