Oil catch can system for N54 engines

Any experience in the group installing and using a catch can system to reduce/ minimize carbon build up. At 35k miles since my last walnut blast I know I am approaching service time for this. ECS tuning offers one, which makes me curious, at just over $200 for the parts kit. I would not forgo a walnut blast at any rate before installing this.

At the same time Id be concerned about whether this is considered an extended warranty-voiding type of modification, and hence best left for after that timeframe.

Not sure what extended warranty you have but most will try to blame anything (especially aftermarket parts) in order not to pay a claim.
Are you sure carbon cleaning is necessary? I'm at 187k miles and never had it done (no OCC). Freeway driving and Italian tuneups go a long way.
