  1. Sorry to get so technical, I just meant that it's very important to explain the function and how performance can be affected in different temperatures with different catch cans and how critical location is for winter months. You're all set as long as your not freezing or having restrictions or flow issues. Feel free to pm me or ask any questions. Have a great weekend, Joe
  2. That location is ok if you do not experience extreme winter cold and you drain the catch can regularly. I just try to keep the UPR Catch Can System in a warmer location as we have taken so much time to develop the best internal coalescing system with multiple stages of coalescing screens, filters and chambers with different holes and baffles throughout the internal diffuser system. Many boast of how many chambers and other variables that mean nothing. We have worked very hard to ensure the oil coalescing with a few friends from FRAM and they told us the science behind proper oil coalescing and engine temps that allowed us to build the best internal design and performing catch cans in the marketplace. As long as the location works for you that is all that matters and if you need to adjust you can move your setup closer or further away from the engine heat depending on the efficiency of the catch can. BTW, hope everyone had a great 4th! Joe
  3. Just a heads up with catch cans in cold weather. 1.) Drain them immediately after your done driving for the day while the contents are still warm and will flow out. 2.) Make sure you catch can system is mounted close to the engine or exhaust so it operates at engine temps or close. 3.) Most important is not to mount catch can far away from engine heat and make sure the can is designed to coalesce efficiently in heat. 4.) Some people even run a cloth winter sock on the catch can or wrap them to keep them warm and insulated. 5.) Never leave the contents in the can from the day before in freezing weather or can blow a seal or vc gasket if its overfull. UPR Catch Cans are designed to run in the hottest locations and weather and coalesce properly in that environment so you will never experience any of the above issues with a UPR Catch Can if you follow the simple steps. Just wanted to share. Everyone grab you UPR Catch Can Systems while the 4th Of July Sale is running and you can see the code in the image below or on the rotating banners of the UPR Website homepage. 10% OFF CODE: USA2019 Thank you and have a happy and safe 4th of July!

  5. We see over time small shavings in the bottom of the catch cans on the Trucks with mid to high miles. As for the media, they are all tightly woven custom non-magnetic Stainless Steel and are designed to last the life of the vehicle without any interference with debris that gets in the bottom of the catch can except to eliminate the chance of anything getting pulled past the filter. We only use custom formed/manufactured custom SS coalescing media that in wire form to eliminate any breakdown and make sure to deliver the very best setup available in every aspect. As we have seen first hand Ford and GM trucks get trash on the magnetic drain plugs and the engines are perfect and last forever. I've seen just normal wear and tear on the engine as it usually comes from under the valve cover when you have metal shaving or debris that travel from there to the oil pan and can eventually get ingested in the engine as the magnetic drain plug was something we added after discovering steel shavings in some catch cans. Since we do not use anything that can create metal shaving in any of our catch cans we decided to add the magnetic drain plugs and have been using them ever since with good luck as they collect chips over time. Glad you brought this up as I didn't even leave the option for the drain valve vs the magnet plug. Thank you for mentioning. Joe
  6. The magnetic drain plug is removable and what everyone needs to remember is the UPR Plug n Play™ Catch Can is designed just to simply unscrew the bottom and drain it out without any mess. No need to ever remove the magnetic drain plug as it will catch and trash that comes through the engine. To tighten the can closed you simply snug it against the o-ring without cranking it or using any force as this was designed for the o-ring to secure it. Joe

  10. I'm getting a vibration in my gas pedal after installing the dual valve with CSS. Is this normal? I seen people comment and I have read some reviews on here. Can you help? All my check valves are running away from the can

      Not normal,

       

      I've heard some guys use a Plastic or Delrin washer between the booster and the mounting bracket.

       

      Never hear about a vibration in the gas pedal from the installation.

       

      Install looks great.

  11. I have to say that's one of the BEST looking engine bays I've seen, from the white engine cover with the Storm Trooper is a very COOL look. Thank you for the honest and flattering review of the UPR Catch Can. I've been working hard on continually updating the UPR Plug n Play™ Catch Can Fittings and love to hear the feedback as it helps me to improve our products and ease of installation. No Bias here but I love how clean the UPR Catch Can looks with the UPR Braided Hoses and Plug n Play™ Fittings that all flow together like a factory product or NICER. Feel free to hit me up if you come up with a good alternative mounting location for the catch can. Thank you, [email protected]
  12. It's extremely critical to keep the vacuum stong and airspeed up so be sure to have the least restrictive setup possible on the dirty line of the PCV system. This is where the vacuum is utilized to help the rings seal and evacuate crankcase pressure which is very similar to a vacuum pump. So basically, you will be introducing a reduced flow/small line system where you should have something that flows the same as factory or better. I would really be looking for a much higher flow unit to go in the PCV line so you do not lose the benefits of the strong vacuum signal from the intake manifold. This is the reason we build UPR Plug n Play™ Catch Cans with OEM and larger UPR braided hoses and UPR plug n play™ fittings so they always flow the same or more than the existing line/setup. It's very important to keep your PCV system flowing smooth and maintain vacuum at all times as any snake down in line is detrimental to the efficiency of the PCV and the overall performance and mpg of your vehicle. The benefits of the oil you catch will be negated by the lack of vacuum and any restriction smaller lines and traps can cause. You have the right idea, just need to get some serious flow parts to accomplish oil control while maintaining the same or better vacuum. Hope this helps. Joe
  13. Exactly, where is the dirty line protection? The way the system is routed it's only protecting the air box from ingesting oil. It's missing 90% or more of the possible oil ingestion.
