  1. The UPR Plug n Play™ Catch Can Systems can be rotated to fit the WOT and or Clean Line with the fully adjustable mounting bracket. As well as the WOT and or Clean Line can be swapped to either side of the UPR Plug n Play™ Dual Valve Catch Can. All our Multi-Chamber Plug n Play™ Catch Can Systems are designed to be fully adjustable and for the fittings to freely swivel to the best relaxed position. The 5.3L engine has the Clean Side Vacuum on the Driver side of the Intake Manifold and the Dirty Side just below the Throttle Body. The 6.2L engine has the Clean Side Vacuum above the Throttle Body and the Dirty Side just below the Throttle Body. Joe / UPRproducts

  6. Install a single valve UPR Catch can on 2014 - 2019 Sierra / Silverado 5.3L Just wanted to add this video of a very nice UPR customer that took the time to do this video for everyone to see his installation of the UPR Plug n Play™ Single Valve Catch Can System on his 5.3L Z71.
  7. Hi Joe,

     

    That catch can setup you make is very nice. I would checkout on your website right now if I had the GM-Trucks discount code. How do I go about obtaining your discount offer?

     

    Here's what I want to purchase asap:

     

    - Dual Valve Catch Can

    - Pro Series Check Valve Upgrade

    - Magnetic Drain Plug

     

    Lastly, I will be adding a Whipple 2.9 Supercharger in the near future. Will part #5030-219-CSS work for me?

     

    Please let me know at your earliest convenience.

     

    Thank you!

      Forgot to ask, does this kit #5030-219-CSS include those neat OEM PVC snap fittings? If not, will you please provide part numbers for those I would need?

       

      Thanks, Joe!

  11. Thank you and we will always use UPR OEM plug n play™ and full UPR 300psi Braided Hoses that are made for fuel, oil, and E85 at no additional charge. We got away from the cheap rubber hose years ago and never looked back. We go through a few hundred thousand feet of UPR 300psi Braided Hoses a year and have it manufactured private label by a few of the largest manufacturers in the world. We won't allow the quality to suffer just to cut corners for profit. We're always working on continuously improving all our components and fine-tuning our catch cans airflow and coalescing properties. Our latest revision has improved airflow characteristics to deliver a better scavenging effect for maximum crankcase evacuation. This improves ring seal and delivers the best all around performance and we already have the most advanced filtration system that performs just as well in the heat as it does the cold mounting locations. We are not like all the other designs that require colder locations to give the best performance which actually creates a placebo effect and generates a ton of condensation and additional water that you have to drain. The UPR design is meant to be mounted in hotter locations to keep the catch can warm and reduce and even eliminate unwanted condensation and time lost emptying the catch can frequently from all the water buildup. This is where a catch can design comes into play as the filter size and airflow is what is tuned to deliver the very best coalescing and condensing in these hotter environments. UPR made sure to give you a system that will control unwanted oil and reduce the need for emptying it all the time. It's nice to see how we continually force the industry to update their offerings to stay competitive. A few companies copied our billet check valves all the way down to our custom hose barb design and have even conceded to OEM fittings and possibly braided hoses. We have so many great new offerings and updates and are always striving to improve our quality and still be able to maintain or lower our retail prices. Sorry to rant as I have been away for a while as my father has been going through prostate cancer and I've been by his side helping him get through this very tough ordeal. My father is the man that drove me to create UPR and always strive to deliver the best products. Our products praise and accomplishments are what we've been able to share with our fellow enthusiasts on more than just a business level. As we are no different than anyone else always looking to share and give our industry and community some incredible options and prices. We have some great Black Friday and Cyber Monday Specials going on currently! Hope everyone had the BEST Thanksgiving and or Holiday with their family and friends.... =============================================== PS, I've been having a Blast on my latest creation that I bought and have completely gone through and updated and redesigned the suspension and Lipo battery system. 45mph and goes 150-miles. Drove it to work today and then I'll meet my son later on his Bike and we ride for a few hours through Bike trails and Bike parks in the area. Yes, we are also very respectful of the people and other riders we ride with. Joe
  12. Crobinson16: UPR Single Valve Plug n Play is the way to go if you don't want the CSS and have the airaid and want to keep it simple. ----------------------- RDKILL: Usually hissing is from a restrictive or low flowing check valve which high airspeed or vacuum fighting through. Basically the same as when you hold your hand over the end of a vacuum and restrict it then you get a hissing or air squeal. Try opening the check valve and removing the internals and see if the hissing goes away. Certain hi-flow units with ceramic balls will create an air noise from the excessive flow as well. Joe
  13. Incorrect as the evacuation between both locations has a minimal difference in vacuum. This has been proven with a lot of testing done by our end users on GM, Ford, and Dodge trucks. We just prefer not to destroy a perfectly good intake tube and drill holes in factory parts and potentially cause any warranty issues for the end users. We have seen many truck owners have problems with the service departments and " The juice is not worth the squeeze" so anyone reading this is aware of potential headaches with any service writer and warranty. Some dealers will let it slide and to us it's never worth the risk for the nominal difference in performance as the vacuum at the end of the tube is almost identical. So now you have to consider some air intakes have the secondary vacuum connection close to the throttle body or midstream and this will give you very similar results with a factory style connection. ( No drilling required ) On a personal note. Drilling looks modified and incomplete, losing the OEM factory look and connections. Hope this helps anyone reading why not to drill any factory tubes. Joe
  14. DB, I just wanted to clear the air on octane stability and catching as much oil as possible are two variables that go hand in hand to consistently give you the very best MPG and Overall performance. Over the course of a year or two the system will pay itself off if you choose one of the top performing catch cans. I can do more than the other companies and confirm I too in the late 90's did not believe in catch cans. I have been working with testing and continually seeing the benefits of the most efficient catch cans vs all the generic low buck aKa suck through catch cans with generic baffling and I'm not talking about empty catch cans either. I am not here to tell you who's catch can to buy. I'm only here to let you know the more efficient your catch can is the greater the return in protection and performance. The placebo catch cans are abundant, not just eBay catch cans either as the majority have some internal baffling and collect oil making the purchaser think they did the job and got a great deal for so much less. You saved money which is always a bonus, the problem is you are still allowing the octane to be lowered from the oil that gets past the catch can that is only catching half or less of the oil that should all be caught. This reduces MPG over a clean combustion as well as the loss of a crisp responsive throttle. I just wanted to share that with you as all manufacturers are not just about sales and I can always answer questions and not just copy and paste the same form letter responses about results and pictures with catch cans being emptied that look like coffee with tons of condensation in them. I'm proud of our products and only offer performance upgrades with real-world results as we continually improve and deliver great products. I'm not one to use the placebo effect to sell products. BTW, thank you for sharing your findings as well. Joe
  15. You can use the second connection on you CAI and that will work perfectly without having to drill any additional holes. PM me any other questions. Joe
