    Hey guys, new to the forum and to the ecoboost/Ford family. I just bought a 2013 FX4 supercab via a salvage auction, it has 87,000 miles but seems to be in real good shape. I am an engineer, and have been looking into as many things I can do to 1. Prevent carbon build up, and 2. Increase the...
  2. Cali 1st Gen smog cert with catch can: anyone got experience with that?

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Has anyone in CA had their 1st Gen ecoboost with catch can smogged since Jan 2019? My 2012 Lariat smog cert is due by May 31st, and I had a bad experience last October with my '03 Cobra. The Cobra has a Diablo Predator chip tune in it, and as soon as they hooked it up the system cancelled the...

    Excited to be in the EcoBoost group. Live in Utah but bought my truck from Alberta. Guy before me added CAI and catback exhaust which I was pumped about. I have put about 3k miles on since purchase (68000 currently). Noticed when I get in the throttle I get the shudder. Been reading up on it...

    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    I have a new 2018 3.5 EcoBoost F150 supercrew 10 speed. It is 100% stock I completed the first oil change earlier than recommended at 4000 kilometers (about 2500 miles). The IOLM was still showing 80% oil life remaining, but I wanted to do an early oil change to eliminate break in metals, &...

    Hey everyone! Looking forward to sifting through the crazy amount of knowledge and experience here. I'm excited about my new truck and I was wondering if anyone has found any issues with their ecoboosts? I have seen a little bit about people adding catch cans and other things to prevent long...
  9. Added 2 MPG for $180 this past weekend

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    The answer? New plugs and a catch can! I recently picked up a 2016 F150 2.7L 4x4 with 82k highway miles. When I had my '13 FX2, I added a catch can and swapped plugs when I bought it. It really helped, so I figured the same for this 2.7L engine. I got the JLT catch can for $140 and new plugs for...
  10. 2.7L UPR CC Hose/sensor length issues??

    F150 Ecoboost Performance
    I know, another catch can thread... Well I'm having an issue with the clean side separator hoses. It seems my sensor wire harness is shorter than average, and perhaps I was sent a shorter hose than usual. The hose that connects from the manifold to the clean side separator is too short to reach...

  16. How Many "Reputable" Catch-Can Mfg's Have You Heard of For Our Trucks?

    F150 Ecoboost Maintenance
    I have read thread after thread and build after build (and argument after argument) on this forum about catch-cans. Who needs them? Why? Whose is better? Etc. In all of my readings on here, I keep seeing the same big players mentioned; UPR, Full Race, and RX, but has anyone else heard of others...

    So I did tons of reading on this forum about the benefits of a catch can, some believe it some don't. What I want to know is the EXACT instructions of how to install on the 2015 Eco 3.5. There are plenty of videos and pictures of the previous models 11-14, but nothing for the 15's........ I...
  18. UPR MEGA Catch Can Click

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Sometimes when letting off the throttle and quickly snapping the throttle back open a 'tap' sound is heard. Is this sound coming from the check valves in the braided lines? Just a bit anxious after installing this system... Thanks.

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Just joined the forum. Next Tuesday, I will be taking delivery of a 2013 Ford F150 FX4 Supercrew with max tow package (to the best of my knowledge as the dealer was not confidence inspiring--window sticker link posted below).
