You own a business or something? Just curious since you have a 14 and 18. That sucks man, it's why in got an extended on my 16. However I've seen several of these Ecos go well over 200k without issue, just regular maintenance maybe an IWE failure here and there no big drivetrain stuff. Hope you get it fixed. Head on over to the other truck forums there is a **** ton going wrong on all of em. Good luck.

IF they do any good, for the reason you would run one is not present on the gen II Eco with the addition of Port Injection.

Why do you feel you need to run one with P.I.?

Thereís plenty of videos on you tube about them and BSG automotive a ford tech for many years recommends them. I just happen to believe that they are a value. I also run them on my supercharged Hemi and catch a lot of oil. John

Same reason they run them on the 5.0 and many other vehicles that are Port Inject (or dual). They prevent oil vapors from going back into your engine, much of it anyway.

I am not really a catch-can "enthusiast", but when I spend $20k on a motor set up and my engine builder says I should run one, I'll run it.
