    Has anyone Installed an oil catch can from RX Performance on a 2017 Raptor? I got one from them and did exactly What they instructed me to do, even reinstall the sensor on the clean side via a vacuum hose from the kit. They said that will prevent the check engine light from coming on. My check engine light kept coming on, especially at WOT, i.e. getting on a on ramp, passing a vehicle etc...

    I have called them but didn't get anything out of them then "Well, sent it back if you can't figure it out"!!! WTF! I told them the vacuum would be too low due to the vacuum is too long and the vacuum would drop too fast. Basically they told me I was too stupid to know how to install it.

    I was wondering if anyone out there have the same problem and how to correct it. Thanks

    Still having issue with the engine light coming on. Emailed RX Performance but no replies. Look like I have to disassemble the unit and get a different unit. My suggestion is don't get this oil can from this company!! I've spend close to $500 on this system thinking was the best and was promised the engine would not come on. Now not even a return email, next time I'll go with a name brand company. Live and Learn !!!!!

    I'm glad I read this as I was just about to order their dual catch can set up for the dirty and clean side, however, I will not do business with a company that doesn't respect their customers or take care of them after the sale.

    There are several "rx" cans.
    Apparently they were all part of the same company at one point.
    I got one from team rxp when I had an issue the guy called me to troubleshoot.after getting all the line sorted out I've had no issues.

    You can’t go wrong with the JLT. It works with no issues.

    Has anyone out there installed any double oil catch cans with the engine light coming on? I just installed the RX Performance 2nd can which they promise the engine light will not come on. WRONG! it still comes on. Called the company with no responds. Am now posting this so everyone knows not to deal with this Shitty Ass company!

    Hate to hear your'e having issues. Are their arrows on the check valves installed in two of the three hoses? If so, make sure they're pointed away from the canister.

    I went with UPR and only had a two mix ups in them shipping. One was they forgot to ship an item and two they sent the wrong size fitting for the breather that fits into where the oil cap goes so pressure can escape should the system freeze in the winter somewhere around -20°.

    They resolved the issues quickly and professionally.

    I installed a complete system with no lights coming on.

    I'm a little familiar with Team RX system when I was doing research and it's one of the reasons I stayed away from them.

    Keep trying to get a hold of them or take a picture and post your connections and maybe I or someone else can offer more information.

    I have double and triple Checked all one way valves and lines, They 're are route the right way. I researched the net and found how to install the cans, but the engine light still comes on. I'm sure the engine light is on from the sensor thats leading from the left valve cover.
