Default Ecoboost Oil Catch Can.

We installed our Oil Catch can on our project ecoboost. Here is a quick hot to video. This can works on 2011+ Ecoboost, 5.0L and 6.2L trucks.

I've had these installed on every vehicle for the past ten years or so and I'll testify that each time I empty them at an oil change, I am always amazed. Doesn't matter if you're using conventional oil or full synthetic, they are a MUST for any new vehicle you plan to keep long-term. My previous vehicle, before purchasing the 2013 Ford EcoBoost was a 2004 Mercury Mountaineer with 200,000+ miles on it; it performs still today as it did when it was new and has ONLY had regular maintenance performed. It still boasts the exact same fuel economy it did the first day I drove it off the lot. I'm not saying that using full-sythetic oil didn't help; however, seeing my intake at 150,000 miles after towing, heavy traffic driving, etc. I will always install on of these. In-fact, I'm headed outside to the garage right now to install this one on the new EcoBoost we just picked up.

I know this is a DIY install Vid, but being a Vendor i would expect a cleaner install on the PCV side, that looks cobbled and having a full 1.5'' of clamp band extra looks cheesy.
Why wouldnt you use say a FI clamp? and even paint it black for some extra flair.

I am not trying to offend you, but with a name like stage 3 i would expect more.

I have to say that I totally agree. On mine i did just used the factory fitting and then used black braided hose and it looks like a factory piece.

Does the $130 on your website include two cans or is just one? Just want to verify.

One, I have one. It works well but I am going to be going with another can that accommodate both evacuation under boost and vacuum. The new install is much cleaner with the factory connections, but my install didn't work like the video. I drilled the hole in the same spot and I spun the fan with my fingers and it hit the nut and bolt. I had to mount it sort of cocked to the passanger side a few inches due to the fan and it hitting a sensor- the video truck has a intake on it, I don't.

Be aware the can is a bitch to empty, dorman part 61105 would make emptying it much easier.

Just attach a hose to the fitting and be able to drain it remotely.
Pm me if you'd like to buy my can that has been installed for 1,000 miles, paid $145 shipped.
