Greetings Fellow Enthusiasts!

I have searched these forums for a factual study of OCC effectiveness on the 3.3L V-6 Stinger GT, and can find no one-stop-shop of data.

For the sake of accurate data collection, it would be interesting if actual drivers of this exact vehicle & engine, who have OCCs installed, could weigh-in with their results-based statistics, to include (at minimum):
* Ounces of gunk collected per 1,000 miles - average
* Content (by appearance) of gunk - fuel / oil / water
* Type of average driving - city / highway / track, easy / aggressive, sport / eco mode, etc
* Type of device fitted - single or double collection can
* On double cans, amount of gunk collected from each
* Lists of all other engine modifications
* Any other personally observed fact-based info

Will eagerly look forward to seeing what's posted!

I installed an OCC in my Kia Optima and it captured oil. I have one in my Stinger.

My car is stock tune and I dump out the catch can at every oil change. I use to drive a lot of highway miles so the build up wasn’t too much, maybe 4-5oz per oil change. Now my driving is a lot less because of having a job closer to home (PTL!), so I haven’t checked it in a few months.
When I would change it out it would definitely be a good mix of oil and water. One time it had a lot of milky sludge in the bottom.
