Why run a catch can?

What's the reason for a catch can? It seems like a lot of guys are running the turbo oil discharge right back to their sumps or chain cases and they seem to be fine.

I am having some trouble fitting a catch can to my motor with the custom exhaust and most committed to going with a drain tube/hose (braided with AN fittings) to the sump cover or the chain cover. I've been searching and reading and I haven't seen anyone that says "Don't do it and this this why..."

I need to make a decision on what I'm going to do as we prepare to put the hot rodded turbo motor into my narrow body.

I'm running EFI, EDIS, k27hfs, M&k y pipe with twin wg's, custom grind cams (964/SC) from Dougherty Racing, and RarlyL8 exhaust.

Please help with any insight as I don't want to short cut, there's too much in the motor, but if it's not necessary then why have it?

Thank you in advance,

John- I blame and thank the longhood boys of Austin
