    Hey everybody,

    We're excited to share that we've been developing a catch can for the 2017+ Raptor 3.5L! In our previous 3.5L EcoBoost catch can projects, we found that the 3.5L produces a very large amount of blow-by. Even though the 2nd-gen 3.5L is dual-injected, we still want to keep the blow-by out of the engine so that your Raptor is running on nothing but clean fuel and air.

    Check out our quick development post below and let us know what you think!

    Thanks,
    -Steve


    History of Success – Baffled Oil Catch Can R&D: Production

    [​IMG]

    The old idiom “history repeats itself” is often used to point out the failures of the past, but in the context of the Ford F-150, that history is one of success. In recent years, Ford has been successful in introducing innovative technologies and ideas to the F-150 while retaining its renowned capability. Ford did face some skepticism in 2011 when they introduced the F-150 coupled to a direct-injected and turbocharged 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine. But, 8 years later, the F-150 is still the best-selling truck in America and, as of 2017, the EcoBoost platform makes up 65% of all F-150’s sold.

    For the 2017 model year, Ford added even more innovation to the 3.5L EcoBoost in the form of dual-injection. Instead of just injecting fuel directly into the cylinder like its predecessor, the 2nd-generation 3.5L combines the power and efficiency of direct-injection with the smooth idle of port-injection. The added port injectors also have the benefit of washing the back of the intake valves to help prevent carbon buildup.

    At Mishimoto, we also have a history of success, especially when it comes to protecting the EcoBoost line of engines from blow-by. That’s why we wanted to develop a catch can to continue protecting the 2nd-generation 3.5L EcoBoost. You might think that the 2nd-gen 3.5L’s port-injection removes the need for a catch can, but there’s more to the effects of blow-by than just carbon buildup.

    How does your catch can compare to others on the market. And will there be discounts available for FRF members? I’d like to get my hands on one.

    Thank you both for the support! @WHYUMAD I'm glad you like the 2.0T catch can :favorites13:

    All of the details are on our website here: Mishimoto 2017+ Ford Raptor 3.5L EcoBoost Catch Can. The catch can is on discounted pre-sale right now and should start shipping about the middle of next month!

    The biggest selling point for our kit over others is that we use a two can system that targets both the CCV and PCV side of the system, without having to permanently modify any of your stock parts or risk pieces of plastic damaging the turbos or engine. With a catch can on each side of the crankcase ventilation system, you'll have vacuum draw on the crankcase both at low load, and while under boost, just how Ford designed the system to work. We also pride ourselves in designing our brackets to meet the same rigorous expectations you have for your F-150. Our bracket is made from 3mm-thick steel and won't bend through repeated bumps and rough roads. We also back our catch cans, lines, and brackets with our Lifetime Warranty, so if you ever do have an issue, we'll be there to fix it for as long as you own the kit.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,
    -Steve

    I have install other POS catch can before and the check engine lights alway comes on when under load due to the sensor on the driver side line of the catch can. The POS company try to tell me I have installed it wrong when I followed their instruction to the letter and now they won't even return my call. Do your system also relocate the sensor?

    The answer to that is going to vary depending on the dealership you take the vehicle to for warranty work. In order for a dealer to deny warranty work due to a catch can, they have to reasonably prove that the catch can is the cause of the issue. If you come in with a transmission issue or a leaking rear diff, it's going to be very difficult for them to pin the issue on the catch can. If it's an engine issue, however, it might be a little easier. In our experience, most dealerships know what a catch can is an how it functions, and they don't have a problem with it. In other cases where the dealership does try to deny the work, a call or email to corporate solves the problem. In either case, if you are very worried about it, removing the catch can kit takes only a few minutes and can be done before taking the truck in to the dealer.

    Our catch can kit is engineered to work without throwing a CEL for the crankcase pressure sensor. We ran into this issue with our 2015-2016 3.5L EcoBoost catch can kit and solved the issue by moving the sensor to the outlet of the catch can. We did the same with this kit and have been running it on our R&D vehicle for several months without issue.

    Thank you for your business!

    Thanks everybody, feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.
