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 UPR 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

Will the UPR Billet One-Way Crankcase breather kit, Item 5013-03

http://www.uprproducts.com/billet-one-way-crankcase-breather-kit.html

work with this catch can? looks like a good clean install for the 2018. Thinking about installing a catch can system, to see if it controls fuel dilution issues. I have sent 4 oil analysis samples in, & last 3 have been 3.4-4.0 % fuel dilution in a 2400-3100 mile OCI.

If I don't see improvements in fuel dilution, can I return?

The 5013-03 does a great job of reducing crankcase pressure and cooling down the engine a bit with its ability to evacuate
hot air and positive pressure at all times. We use a heavier ceramic ball and much better baffling system so we were sure to
offer the very BEST One-Way Crankcase Breather only AVAILABLE from UPRproducts.

I've also experienced a nice improvement with my 3.5 Explorer and Expedition were more responsive due to the reduction
in internal temps. A big plus for hard driving and towing as well.

what is this option? I cant seem to find what the difference is between the 399 kit, and the 499 kit


[5030-238-1-ECSS](+100.00)

UPDATE, just read through the description.

So I would want this ECSS option for the 2018, Correct? That is the Driver side PCV sensor at 1:19-1:50 in the video?

Wanted to share exactly what the New UPR ECSS looks like and be sure you have the correct numbers for the UPR ECSS Kits.

The UPR ECSS is the full Plug n Play™ Catch Can System and it provides the very best protection across the board and is designed
to work seamlessly with the OEM sensors - Factory electronics. No tuning or programming required at all. This has been our biggest
breakthrough with the Ecoboost platform and has become an integral part of all New UPR Ecoboost Catch Can Systems.

This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1000x1000.


These Brand New System has two Utility patents pending.

UPR only uses OEM or better components throughout all our UPR Plug n Play™ Catch Can Systems for the Ecoboost Platform.


2015 and newer truck Kit part numbers are listed below to make it easier when ordering.


2015-2016 3.5 F150 = 5030-124-1-ECSS

2015-2016 3.5 F150 = 5030-124-1-ECSS

2017-2017 3.5 F150 = 5030-221-1-ECSS

2018-2019 3.5 F150 = 5030-238-1-ECSS

2015-2017 2.7 F150 = 5030-239-1-ECSS

2018-2019 2.7 F150 = 5030-166-1-ECSS


Thank you, Joe

So the new Electronic clean side separator doesn't allow any oil to be drawn into the intercooler from the drivers side turbo? Is it designed to collect it, & allow it to fall back into the valve cover? This does not connect to the catch can at all, & looks like it has a check valve installed. It must still draw (filtered) air externally, is it serviceable? All the oil residue vapors are removed from the passenger side pcv valve, right?

Just questioning if it can still be run with the oil fill breather replacement. I would feel safer using a catch can with a breather installed, in case of a malfunction with a check valve, which could cause excessive pressures inside the engine.

I am still curious to see how accessible it is to drain the can. Is there a drain hose attached to empty it?

Sorry for all the questions. I am a hands on kind of person, & need to see how it works & figure it out before I make a decision. I have logged 3 oil analysis samples, after a break in sample was submitted, & will likely do 1 or 2 more. I would like to see if this product shows any beneficial results that can be seen through oil analysis. Do you have any test data, supported through oil analysis before, and after installation?

1. There is no check valve as one cannot be run on a dedicated bi-directional line for the PCV fresh air intake.

Just questioning if it can still be run with the oil fill breather replacement. I would feel safer using a catch can with a breather installed, in case of a malfunction with a check valve, which could cause excessive pressures inside the engine.

2. We run the UPR One-Way Breather in conjunction to protect against boost/pressure spikes that can flow the reverse direction through the intake side of the PCV during WOT or heavy boost.

I am still curious to see how accessible it is to drain the can. Is there a drain hose attached to empty it?

3. The oil level internally goes up about a quarter way before it will return back into the valve cover.

4. The only testing we do it to keep track of oil travel/control and this has done the best job and requires no maintenance.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I prefer the Dual layer of protection from the UPR ECSS and the UPR One-Way Breather as
I've seen heavy towing and or boost levels require them both to positively control oil mist
and vapors effectively.

Thanks for the clarification.

I thought that the ECSS completely blocked the valve cover, and was a filter to draw outside air through it, pulling all required vacuum from the passenger side, while maintaining vacuum to the electronic sensor, so it would not throw a CEL.

Still not sure if you answered my question about draining the actual catch can mounted below the air intake on the F150. Am I able to access this easily from under the truck? I have the factory skid plate. How hard is it to reach the valve? Do you attach an extension hose, & drain it through the wheel well opening.

The UPR Drain Valve is easily accessible and easy to drain.

Here is a photo I just took on my 18 3.5 F150 so you can
see how easy you can get to the UPR Catch Can to drain
it from the front driver fender well.

UPR F150 DV Catch Can Drain.jpg

The inner fender well can just be lifted and to reach the
drain valve with the front wheel turned all the way left.
You can run a hose if you like. But, it's not really needed.

Can the ECSS be used by itself, & purchased separately, without the entire catch can? It would limit the amount of residue that I have been noticing in the hoses to the intercooler.
