    I think that is normal? @RMB_Ryan I was talking to you sometime last year and you said it would smell and have a little oil come out, at least that is what I remember.

    I talked to UPR and that seems to be the general consensus that some oil out is normal. Definition of "some" is relative. I didn't have much out but I wont be using the breather again. Oil goes in and comes out during an oil change. I hate an oily mess in the engine bay. The usual dirt and grime is not a problem but when there are oil leaks (this I consider intentional) then I draw the line.

    Turbos do create a lot of blow by so I'm not hating on UPR, just not my preference. I will probably sell it for half price if I can find a local taker.

    Long term updates continue.

    I resisted the urge to do an April fools post, I thought I might jinx myself.

    Nothing new to report lately. Mileage is holding steady, no oil usage, not adding to the oil, no coolant loss. I have a distinct fuel smell in the oil after using the breather and repeated WOT runs. I will likely change the oil early because of the fuel smell, it has never been this strong before. I have also been keeping a closer eye on the dipstick thinking maybe an injector stuck open, but so far no changes in the level on the stick.

    Finally starting a true spring weather pattern in Texas now (sorry to rub it in) so I will have a few maintenance items to do coming up.

    Long term updates continue...

    Time for a cabin air filter, this one was dirty! It went in May 2018.

    7mm on a nut driver and 5 minutes. Easy once a year job.

    $2,694 + $17 = $2,711

    Long term updates continue.

    Time for an oil change.

    As usual, Castrol Magnatec 5w-30 and a motorcraft filter. No issues or problems.

    Oil out was black as night and smelled like gas more than any previous oil change. Filter looked almost new. The Ronin oil pan plug was a no mess easy to use product.

    2,711+36=$2,747

    Long-term updates continue.
