blondie-tuco I never got a straight answer other than “buy both”. I bought a mishimoto, and don’t expect performance increase, just doing it to keep the intake clean.

Find someone with long skinny arms to help you.

Now I'm confused.
Yeah so am I!? Not sure why they offer both a drivers and a passengers side catch can. I would think you'd only need one with two being overkill. The stock PCV/oil separator is on the drivers side of the motor and this unit from Ford definitely would keep everything under the hood looking "factory" were you to install one.

Do us all a favor and use the "Contact" option on the Ford Performance Parts website and ask them!

SgtJeep I'm more concerned about the residue the oil leaves in the intake tract and on the back side of the valves. How long before it builds up and starts causing problems?

So how much extra power do you think your making with that catch can installed? Unless your engine was pushing a quart of oil into the intake every 500 miles it's a waste of money. I suggest you try dyno'ing before and after the catch can installation, then get back with us and show the results.

On a stock car there really is no advantage to having a catch can. The PCV system is designed to route those crankcase gases back into the intake tract and burned as part of the normal combustion process. However in modified high compression engines, or engines that run a lot of boost the amount of oil vapors in the crankcase are increased and sometimes too much oil gets picked up in the PCV system and sucked into the intake tract. This can in extreme cases foul a plug.

Most of the time people see oil in the intake tract and freak out so they install a catch can thinking it will help with performance. However in reality the small amount of oil vapors being sucked back into the intake has little to no impact on overall performance.

Neither, it's from the crankcase.
