The waiting would drive me nuts, congratulations
I hear ya. First time I've ever had to wait. I've always driven away the same day I bought a vehicle. I'm good though. Gives me time to do more research and to collect some parts.

100% a money pit. Especially when you decide you want to “upgrade” a mod that you’ve already done. It happens often.

Yea, I'm sure this will happen. I'm trying to avoid this by doing a lot of research but I understand no matter what you do some things change after you spend some time with it.

Talk to me Goose? What's up with the oil separator?

Your engine relieves pressure from the crankcase through a hose that connects the valve cover to the intake manifold. This is commonly refereed to as "blow-by". The ventilation of blow-by gases contaminates the intake air by allowing oil and gunk into the intake manifold. Over time, that gunk will build up inside the intake runners and valves and begin to hurt fuel economy, horsepower, and cause misfires. Left unchecked, this can lead to more serious issues like pre-ignition or pinging.

Adding a catch-can will prevent buildup inside your engine. Essentially the catch can will act as a collection system before they can reach the intake manifold. It's super easy to install and service. Took me maybe 10 minutes to install and 2 minutes to service. I recommend servicing it every oil change.

Here's what I collected from mine after only 4,000 miles:

Excellent advise. I will plan on putting a separator on as soon as I get the truck. Do you have any links for a brand?

CBrob Negative. It does not have anything to do with exhaust gas recirculation. The 3.5L has variable valve timing so it does not need an egr.
