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 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.
