+1 I definitely need one too. I may be stationed in Virginia a year from now. Hopefully it doesn’t take them that long to figure it out

I installed my UPR can today. It was a breeze and the can is polished aluminum and looks sharp.

I need help on removing the fitting for the clean side where the oil separator goes. It’s a different fitting than UPR shows in their video. Here’s a pic. Any idea on how to remove this? Thanks in advance.

It’s an oil/air separator for the PCV system; reduces the amount of oil mist entering the intake. Theoretically, it keeps the intake valves from coking
on direct injection engines since there’s no fuel going through the port to wash the valves down.

Is there a performance benefit?
