2016 and up Ford Ecoboost 2.7L
(can be used for other 2.7L platforms as well, only mount location will vary and orientation of the engine)
The can will install on the inside of the engine compartment off of the bolt for the radiator shroud: (Note, bend offset extension in vise to achieve as level of can mount).
You will remove the hard line from the passenger side valve cover and intake manifold and set aside to retain if in the future you wish to revert back to stock. The hose from the center of the can will have no check valve, but will have a T near the drivers side that you run a 3/8” hose to the flow/pressure sensor you unsnap from the stock driver side clean line. It then connects to the passenger side valve cover with the OEM 90* snap on fitting, and the other end to the can center.
Now one outlet form the can with check valve inline flowing away from the can will connect to the vacuum barb left open on the passenger side of the intake manifold.
We now move to the drivers side. You remove the hard line that connects to the driver side turbo inlet, and unsnap carefully the flow/pressure sensor from the stock line. Keep the stock hard line for future if needed, and you will take the length of 3/8” hose and clamp one end to the flow sensor. The other end of this hose connects to the 1/2”x1/2”x3/8” T that is installed into the center line from the can as mentioned earlier.
This should prevent any CEL light from coming on in relation to the PCV system. Cap the barb left open now on the driver side valve cover with included vacuum cap:
This also shows the flow/pressure sensor relocated and clamped to 3/8” hose. Zip tie to other line to secure. Install the lower plastic base of the clean side unit to the oil fill cap, and set aside and keep your original cap if needed for later:
CSS CLEAN SIDE SEPARATOR IS OPTIONAL:
So you simply push CSS in to seal, and pull to remove for adding oil in future.
Second outlet from can w/check valve inline flowing away from the can will then snap onto the barb left open on driver side turbo inlet. IF you wish to have the best available evacuation when in boost, you will drill and tap into the passenger side turbo inlet tube. As close to the turbo inlet as possible, and then T passenger and drivers side together and then to check valve hose to second can outlet.
Final step, drill and top into the upper section of the stock air box on the side that faces to the rear of the truck, and install 90* barb and connect line from this to the CSS barb. (add the quick snap clamps to this barb to secure hose tight).
You should now be complete. Drain is a ¼ turn ball valve that is closed when sideways, and open when straight up and down. Always drain after engine is warm and off, not running. Check at 500 miles to begin to judge the rate of filling for your engine, and then 1-2,000 miles after this. Cold climates below 45* F you may need to when below freezing drain every 400-500 miles!!! Due to the added water and un-burnt fuel present.
Always dispose of contents as you would drain oil. Don't pollute!
What your catching is a mix of the contaminates that would other wise accumulate in your engine oil and be ingested as well. This is far more than oil, these systems are so effective they remove and trap the water, fuel, acids, and particulate matter as well as other contaminate before they can settle and mix with your engine oil.
