@Buschur have the second batch started shipping yet? just picked mine up today and want to get the can on asap.
Unfortunately our tubing supplier screwed up and didn't put our order in. The tubing was just shipped to us late last week. As soon as it gets here it is priority to get them built, I have a lot of orders here waiting, we can build them quickly since it's all in house and the powder coater is across the street.

I agree to using these with direct injected engines like these but from experience with my ecoboost mustang they aren’t worth the risk of hydro locking the engine if the container isn’t watched carefully and drained during the winter months. Mine would fill up with milky oil and need to be dumped every 2-4 weeks. A few times the cup was full to the rim. The engine produces too much condensation in the cup when it cools down in freezing weather. I thought it was something I was doing wrong only to find out from others in the massachhsetts area they have the same problem with catch can setups during the winter. Not worth the risk to me living here but if I lived in a southern state I’d run one for sure.

It’s probably too expensive to engineer for the more economical motors but I’m hoping to see more engines like the 2.7 liter in the Bronco with dual injection. One direct into cylinder the other via the intake port. They say it improves atomization of the fuel/air for ignition but also and I think more importantly the fuel washes carbon off back of the valves avoiding the carbon buildup that’s been a problem with direct injection over port injection. Ive also heard the fuel cools the valve and valve seats prolonging their life and avoiding a dropped valve.

There is absolutely no way a catch can is going to hydro lock an engine, zero, nada, impossible.

haha I expected that !!:) . Just tell me where is the fluid going to flow when the can is full and the turbo keeps building pressure. It’s certainly not going backward. So tell me.. what’s my agenda telling you about a real issue. I know all about hydro locked motors but let’s put that aside and ask what sort of problems will that fluid cause even just getting into the intake plenum or freezing in the catch can or lines. That can of milk has only one place to flow and it didn’t need to be all that much getting into the cylinders to cause a problem. But hey it’s our choice to buy or not. I’ve thrown my money away once on one and for the reasons I mentioned won’t be buying another one. I didn’t wanna go there to scare off your customers but I guess the underlying takeaway now that so much been said is that anyone thinking about installing one should to do a little research before buying one. It’s a known fact that cold weather can be an issue and if your not aware of that potential then I’m a little suspect.

I think you have to ask yourself one question with this device—If it’s purely beneficial why wouldn’t the manufacture not install one? There has to be a reason?

R&D cost
Tooling cost
Material cost
Assembly cost/time
Base MSRP increase
Dumb owners that would never empty them
