This is BY FAR the best explanation of why using a catch can is a good idea. Please watch the whole video.
I installed this can and it collect 2-3 oz about every month or two. Mild throttle and really short distances 4 Days a week. Gonna start tracking the amounts and time between draining now that it’s been on for a while. The stuff that drains is nasty milky oil crud!! It definitely collects a bunch of nastiness that would be going back into the engine!!
Here is pics of draining the can just now!

Some just don't. There are those here who will tell you theirs produces a lot of crud so yours should too. But there have been enough guys catch very little with a can that was known to be installed properly, and of good quality, for me to say with reasonable certainty that some just don't produce much to catch.I got a catch can, installed the catch can, I have gotten zero sludge from the catch can!
I did get a new engine put in about 7k miles ago. I don't know if this is something that will happen over time but after 7K miles I have gotten no sludge.

Joe, I'm trying to find the part number for the Quick connect fitting you put in the intake tube around the 9 minute mark of the video. Can you help me out?Just wanted to share this installation video with everyone on an installation of the BRAND NEW
UPR 17-19 F150 Ecoboost Plug n Play™ Dual Valve Catch Can with ECSS™ - Electronic Clean Side Separator
This has been developed to eliminate the CEL=Check Engine Light and give you the best protection at the exit and entrance of the PCV system.
Enjoy the Video and we're now offering this kit for all 2015-2019 F150's and we have the Patent Pending UPR ECSS available as a separate option
for all the 2015-2019 F150 trucks as well.
The ECSS is a brand new option for the F150 Ecoboost Trucks and SUV's.
I added this here to share the UPR Plug n Play Catch Can as an OEM or better option that protects the clean side and the dirty side. This
design has a Utility patent-pending to protect the function of the ECSS as maintains the correct airflow and eliminates pressure the drops
that cause the Variable Pressure Sensor voltage to go out of range and trip the CEL - Check Engine Light.
The Ecoboost Engine always have to protect both the clean side and the dirty side of the PCV system.
Keeping it simple for the Clean and Dirty side of the PCV.
1.) The UPR Plug n Play™ Dual Valve Catch Can Function
This can gets mounted in the engine bay and is routed between the PCV valve and the intake manifold vacuum and is the main point of entry for oil
ingestion into the Ecoboost intake manifold, runners and combustion chambers. We keep it in a location where it will stay hot so it will reduce the
amount of condensation that gets collected reducing the need to drain it more frequently.
2.) The UPR Plug n Play™ Dual Valve Cath Can WOT Function - (WOT) = Wide Open Throttle
This is the second vacuum source that comes off the UPR Plug n Play™ Dual Valve Catch Can. The main function of this line is to eliminate BOOST
pressure from entering your crankcase and pressurizing it at WOT. The WOT function comes into play when you go into any BOOST and your primary
check valve on the clean line from the catch can that connects to the vacuum from the intake manifold has positive pressure. When BOOST activates
the primary check valve to close the PCV no longer has anywhere to get vacuum from or release the positive pressure from the BOOST/Blow-by.
The WOT line now goes into full effect by providing a secondary vacuum source to the PCV system. This is why we call it a UPR (DUAL Valve) Catch
Can. By providing this additional vacuum source we effectively reroute the PCV flow into the suction side of the intake tube before the turbo where no
BOOST is and it only has vacuum drawing from the intake side of the turbo.
3.) The UPR Plug n Play™ Dual Valve Cath Can ECSS Function - (ECSS) = Electronic Clean Side Separator
The ECSS is for the intake/clean side of the PCV system where the fresh air is drawn into the PCV system from the driver side turbo air intake tube
before the turbo. This is the problem side that can trip the CEL when modified if the sensor does not see the correct airflow it will go out of range
and light up the CEL on your dash. The ECSS is Brand New system and developed exclusively by UPR to protect the clean side from spitting oil into
the intake tube before the turbo when in boost or towing. This is a very common problem with the ecoboost and no other catch can have been able
to address this problem correctly.
The ECSS has a multi-stage internal design that controls oil ingestion and maintains the proper pressure at the VPS sensor effectively eliminating the
CEL. We have worked long and hard on this system and tuned the internal design and flow path of the ECSS to function in the same range with the
VPS sensor and keep that unsightly CEL off. We are in the process of releasing this to work with any catch can system as a stand-alone ECSS system.
I hope this helps with the PCV function and understanding how to properly protect the Ecoboost PCV System from Oil Ingestion at BOTH sides of the PCV.
Thank you, Joe
