All of them lol except the drain valve kit. I opted for the magnetic drain plug. Having a hard time getting the CSS side installed. The factory yellow clips are a PITA to get off without breaking them.
Same here, there must be an easier way than a pick….

right?!? I can get one side but it seems impossible to get the back side blindly and get it to release. Maybe a second set of hands?

Once your able to get one the second will be easier because you’ll be able to rotate the hose

The other option I guess would be to cut the hose itself so you would rotate the factory clips as there would be no reason to reuse it and worst case scenario order a new one as I doubt it would be expensive. My only fear is that once it’s cut you have to get it off and install the clean side….or your stuck until you do at least haha

I just tried again and was able to get it. I used two mini right angle picks, stubby flat head and used my phone camera as a mirror so I could see where I was prying. I actually started with the intake one, blind side first and then did the single one and it popped right off. After I was able rotate the hose and got the other one.

Probably not, it is the clean side but here in ca, the upr catch can is tough to get. Lethal performance was able to ship it here even though upr themselves wouldn’t because of the CARB laws. So I figured, I’m going to do this once and get everything.

I installed the FP oil separator and the truck now has the check engine illuminated. Has anyone installed the FP separator without triggering the check engine light?
I wonder if that was triggered by unplugging the coils? If you didn't disconnect the battery that might be your answer. Probably just needs reset

Elected to go with UPR, pro series check valve, magnetic plug and o-rings with Memorial24 discount. Did not think I really needed clean side...the clean side on my GT350 never saw a drop. Normally prefer to go FP parts, but after watching the install video I decided to go with UPR for easy of install / removal and saved like $200.
