The condensation is released along with the air in the engine. Oil doesn't come through because the baffle keeps it from splashing out. With a properly breathing system it shouldn't be releasing oil into the air. Also there should be no fuel in the valvetrain. Any oil that is pumped up into the top of the head will just slowly work its way back into the oil pan.
I think this confirms that I make my purchase soon.
What do u think Kevin?
Gabe said in 2 weeks they will have red and black powdercoated covers but if you want the silver one you have to special order it.

Ya, the milky oil you see in your catch cans is just oil frothed up with water- given time, it'll separate back into oil and water. When this happens IN the engine, the water is boiled off, goes out as vapor with the blowby, leaving the oil behind. That's what you want- emptying catch cans full of **** every week sucks.
That's also why it's essential to get your oil up to temperature at least once every day or two. Water is a regular byproduct of combustion and therefore if the oil temps are not hot enough it starts to build up pretty quickly.
The OE valve cover baffle setup also works well- we have an OE valve cover on our dyno motor right now just because supplies are limited on the billet ones- it doesn't spew crap everywhere either.
Gabe will have red and black anodized ones- we are machining them as I'm typing. The anodize should let the billet sexyness shine through much better then powdercoat.
i havent really smelt anything unless i deliberately put my nose right up to the breather cap and inhale lol. even at stoplights when there is no air passing through or if i let the car sit and idle i dont smell any fumes. the set up they offer is practical and works so far for me just as is. i just hope when winter time comes around and when the climate changes that this wont take a crap on me.
Dave ran his for the end of winter and into spring so far- no problems. Utah isn't ultra cold though... However, I would expect much less problems since the overall volume of liquid that must be dealt with is lower.
