hmm, I am surprised that nobody has mentioned that the 3rd gen 3sgte came stock from the factory with an oil catch can... I doubt toyota engineers are idiots..on a side note, i'm eventually going to go with a diy catch can like this:

Hey , speaking of catch cans , i was wondering if anyone could possibly provide some insight as to whats happening in my engine ... i know my valve seals are going because im getting a shitload of carbon build up around the tip of my tailpipe with some slight liquid / condensation

but in my catch can , sometimes its a slight foamy brown , other times its a mix between black and brown and sometimes looks like pourly stirred coffee .. and even sometimes it has actual water in the bottom with the oil floating on the top.

now some of my friends are saying it could possibly be coolant leaking past the headgasket into my combo chamber .. others are saying possibly excess fuel considering it usually smells like fuel when i dump it out (heavily)

this also started to happen on my other engine when i first installed my catch can and shortly after the engine blew .. (oil pump went)
