    The catch can will catch a lot of condensation and that's why it's milky looking. It's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

    Speaking of catch cans, I emptied about 1 ounce of "stuff" into a small plastic cup from the catch can. After a few minutes the cup bottom had, imagine that "stuff" (gas/oil mixture) clogging up the intercooler over time.
