  1. math_10silverado We have several new designs coming out that eliminate all crankcase pressure issues and they will be available in the next month or two. Feel free to contact me for any questions as they are a blessing for all engine seals and letting out every bit of positive crankcase pressure without causing any vacuum issues. We have several patents in process before we release as it's a completely new design for any climate or power level. Feel free to PM as I can guarantee it will perform perfect in any conditions. Joe
  2. Just wanted to reach and share with everyone how to contact ( UPR's Catch Can Man ) Steve he can be reached by email for all new catch can specials and tech help for your cars and trucks. Please email him at [email protected] .com to get the best deals and tech help for your application. He can explain the basics and what makes UPR catch cans so much better than all other catch cans on the market without any double talk or BS. Were not into a bunch of scare tactics and doctored up before pictures from other people posts like the competition. Most importantly we only focus on delivering a true plug n play™ catch can system that includes braided hoses and all billet hose ends so you get an OEM or better quality setup for your vehicle. We do not use the cheap little clips that you have to use a pliers and struggle to install them on the hose or get them to lined up. We only use the best and will take the time to make sure you get the best deal and quality for your money with a 100% tested design that has several utility patents behind it. Our multi-chamber multi-stage catch cans are the main focus and we are continually improving what we offer. Thank you for taking the time to read this and feel free to ask questions or request pricing as we do offer a discount for GM-Truck members when you order direct. www.UPRproducts.com
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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!

  7. 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
  8. 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

  12. 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]
  13. 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
  14. 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.

  16. The CSS improves the quality of air/oil protection on the clean side of the intake on the PCV as that line flows both ways depending on engine load and blow-by. Oil does get pulled through the clean side when you are towing or driving spirited. The UPR CSS is just a very precise way to make sure your engine is getting the cleanest fresh air into the PCV system/crankcase at all times. The factory air filter is only the first line of defense and this is the second layer. A catch can without a CSS only protects the dirty side of the PCV and it can ingest whatever contaminants find their way through. Basically, it extends the longevity of your vehicle. The UPR CSS has a uniquely designed internal multi-stage system with an SS coalescing filter and Billet internal splash shield.

  18. I never noticed that the small can is just a billet inline fuel filter with a hole drilled in the sie of it! How much was that system? The internal filter image on their website is from a regular fuel filter. You can get that filter on eBay for $18 Shipped and RX sells it for $149.00!!! I would send that back as you are not getting any deal unless it's a FREE kit they sent you to test. Also, they are advertising a heat exchanger feature and adding a nipple to the end of the diffuser like a drip tube is not a heat exchanger. Just saw that after your image post as I used to watch RX make many claims with different parts that were not above board. I don't like seeing anyone taken advantage of as these boards are to share and educate fellow enthusiasts about good products and companies. Just search eBay for this part name. - billet aluminum inline fuel filter https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=billet+aluminum+inline+fuel+filter&_sacat=0 I hope this helps you get a better setup that is meant to deal with the PCV system.

  20. 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.
  21. Send me a picture of the kit you have installed on your truck and I will take a picture with sizes of the fittings you need. Thank you, Joe
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
