Did 1st oil change at 1500 miles and installed JLT's oil catch can ($150) same time (currently have 2000 miles). Took maybe 15 min to install. Thought I'd check the collection amount so far. Had about 2 teaspoons of oil maybe....maybe. Better in there than where it would have gone. Took 5 minutes tops to unscrew can, clean and replace. Great system!

What does the catch can do for performance and maintenance?
During the process of venting crankcase pressure back through your intake track, large amounts of oil in the form of vapors can coat your blower rotors, intake valves, intercooler fins, and even dilute your gas lowering its octane level. This happens on all engines and is even worse when supercharged and turbocharged as crankcase pressures are increased. To combat this, we have developed an oil separator of our own design. Milled from solid billet aluminum this is a rock-solid piece. It has a knurled tank base for easy removal to drain the spent oil and an O-ring seal to prevent any leaks.

Filtering consists of a fine mesh stainless steel screen that traps fine oil vapors and releases them once heavy enough to fall. They then pass through a 1/2" thick 1/16th" aluminum honeycomb filter where they grow every larger and then fall into the bottom. By the time the oil gets through the filter it's too heavy to be passed on into the intake. The tank holds 3 oz of fluid, while that may not sound like a lot, you shouldn’t see that much oil in your PCV system. Drain it every 2000-3000 miles and you will never come close to filling it.

Hey everyone, the new UPR website is up, and we are working out some bugs. Here is the PDF for the install instructions. https://uprproducts.com/content/5030-249-ECSS.pdf It shows the Orange driver side PCV fitting removal. It takes a little patience and a 90 or hook pic to release the 3 tabs under the fitting.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me at steveb@uprproducts.com.
