All the more examples on why you DON'T want this ingested into the intake air charge. The small price top pay for such dramatic results is a no brainer IMHO, and I urge any ecoboost owners to get the UPR extension to increase capacity of your can....you wont regret it.

Finally got around to tapping out the catch cans and adding a ball joint and 3/8" tubing. Not as elegant as the RX can solution, but it's going to have to do for now. I'm alarmed at how fast the passenger side fills up. I average 1 oz of fluid per WEEK. The driver's side still has zero in it. Do I drive too slowly?

Default RX Oil catch can

I installed an RX catch can on my 2013 Ford Ecoboost and I drained it after 250 miles and it filled a 16 ozs water bottle. I am so glad I installed this to prolong the life of my motor.

So I am completely new to this, but if these things are so great why are they not installed from the factory? If I add one will it void my warranty?

Fair question and easily answered.

They aren't installed because a "no maintenance" solution hasn't been created. No manufacturer is going to ask customers to perform another maintenance step. You have to drain the cans.

As far as warranty, in the years our product has been on the market not one customer has had their warranty voided that we're aware of. This is for a few reasons.

First The Magnuson Moss act says an aftermarket product has to cause a catastrophic failure in order to void a warranty. As far as Ford goes, the 2014 and below F150 EcoBoost has a major issue with the intercooler, gravity and moisture. It accumulates so much moisture that water collects in the CAC. Once enough water accumulates, when the turbos go into boost they can push the water into the combustion chamber. Then the truck can go into Limp Mode and shut down. This is dangerous for some many obvious reasons and it's an issue Ford doesn't want to take heat for because they wouldn't allow someone to add a catch can.

Call or email me anytime and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

I know this is an old thread but... I found it and still have questions so others might too.
I'm fairly versed on the use and benefit of the catch can. But I see no connection between the catch can and the intercooler making water from condensation and getting it forced into the engine. Can you please clarify the connection for me? I'm planning on this mod for my soon to be ordered 17 and would like to be able to justify it for every reason.

And with the new second gen 3.5 ecoboost having port and direct injection having the Coke issue seems much less likely with the new set up and quality fuel.

Anything helping the cac issue is a benefit imo.

I do understand that the issue mentioned has been engineered out. However, still would like to know. Others will benefit.

These are two separate issues. I believe the poster was hinting that Ford is not taking issue with catch cans, because it(Ford) does not want extra scrutiny on its poor CAC design.

I have the RX Performance catch can on my 2013 Screw 3.5 EB. I bought it in Oct '15. It was a 1 owner trade in, bought new in Feb '14 and traded in Oct '15. It had 14.5k miles on it when I bought it and I installed the catch can before I hit 18k. I'm still amazed at how much crap the thing is pulling out of the system that would otherwise be ingested into the motor. One of the nice things about the RX can is that it evacuates the PCV system at idle and under boost. I check the can about every other month or so and I get about 8-10 oz give or take every time. Here is a video of my system. http://vid777.photobucket.com/albums...psvphinl9k.mp4
