Yea that's crazy. Could u imagine after 20 or 30000 miles? It should come standard but atleast it don't break the bank. Great investment!
The catch can installs on the passenger side valve cover to air intake.Nice job, looks good. Just curious, does the hose still have to connect to the Cai.
Do you take a lot of short trips where your car don't warm up all the way?Yea I got the jlt catch can which says to empty after 5000 miles but it is about full after like 1000-1500 miles, at first I was thinking I had terrible piston blow by but now that I see how much you have in there with 300 miles I have a bit more peace of mind
It keeps all of that oil in the can out of your intake. On my old 4.6L, the PCV line connected to the intake just before the throttle body. After a while the oil mist would dirty up the TB, slowing down the throttle response.So what does this do as far as performance? I thought this was a 5.0 only thing.
I dealt with a dirty throttle body before in my 3.8. Once cleaned, now that was a cheap mod you could feel a differenceIt keeps all of that oil in the can out of your intake.

Before the catch can, I was cleaning my TB every 2-3 months. After installing it, I never had to clean it. Instead, I'd just empty out the catch can. Plus, if that much grime is getting on the TB, then how much was going through the intake manifold and on the valves? I see a catch can as well worth the money.I dealt with a dirty throttle body before in my 3.8. Once cleaned, now that was a cheap mod you could feel a difference
How'd u make it! I wanna make one too lolSeems there has been quite a bit of "performance" topics here lately. Great discussions. Here's another option you may want to consider: an oil catch can. Ford dropped the conventional PCV type setup years ago, and went with a straight tube from the valve covers to the air inlet/intake to draw any engine blowby and have it re-burned. problem is, there is quite a bit of oil mist that gets drawn into the air intake, which can do a couple of things: one is that it can dilute the air mixture a bit, and secondly, it causes this oil to deposit on the valve top, and the pistons.
Before the nay sayers jump on me and say "why did'nt Ford add this", I'll state that I do not know. However, you can buy a pre-made kit for about $100.00, or make your own (as I did) for less that $25.00. You only need to add one on the passenger side. After only 300 miles after the install, this is how much oil mist I captured and prevented from entering the air intake manifold (see the bottom of the clear tube):
Only one way, going to work its is about 8 miles but the temp gauge just gets to normal operating temp as I pull up.jdavis96gt said:Do you take a lot of short trips where your car don't warm up all the way?
In my case, I drive about 700 miles a week, 90% highyway speeds of 70+ MPH, so the "short trip/no warm up" is not an issue by far.Only one way, going to work its is about 8 miles but the temp gauge just gets to normal operating temp as I pull up.
On the way home I take the long way home. I'd say it having been 0 to 5 below zero may have had something to do with it. Now that its wamed up I'll have to see how much there is the next time I change it
Not sure to be honest...after I cut the hard plastic molded lines off of the Ford connectors, I used fuel line hose I had hanging on the wall. I think it was 3/8.Did you use 3/8" lines.
