Update - Finally took delivery of Bronco last Tuesday, today was first chance to install the catch can. Quick and easy install, took less than 10 minutes. Test drove about 50 miles afterwards, no engine codes. Will follow up after first oil change as amount of oil collected in catch can, plan to change the oil shortly after 1000 miles, might be a while since this is not a daily driver.
Pictures follow.

Original Post Below

Ordered an UPR Oil Catch for 2.7, arrived today. Very well made and packaged. Also ordered the magnetic drain plug, remote drain kit and one way breather. Will be approx 6 - 7 weeks before install. Bronco Badlands build week 10/4, dealer estimated last week Oct or first week Nov delivery. Present plan is to install day of delivery. Reviewing the installation instructions should only be approx 10 minute install. Present plan is not to install the remote drain kit, thought is to wait and see what the actual service interval is, if excessive then use the drain line kit to install a remote tank. Only reason the mag drain plug was ordered was to see if there was actually any metal particles flowing thru the PCV system, highly doubtful IMHO. Plan to update thread after install and results after being driven over time.

Reasons for selecting the UPR kit, it's available now so it can be installed on first day, UPR has excellent rep for their catch cans, made in the USA and UPR is a Florida Company, believe in buying local whenever possible. In addition if needed it can be very easily / quickly removed and return to stock if needed for warranty work. Note, if ordering from UPR they have a 7 to 14 day lead time after placing the order to manufacture the kit. Have called them a couple of times in reference to the order and product specs, you couldn't ask for better support.

Not wanting to start another debate on catch cans, main reason for installing is simply to keep the blow by oil fumes from coating the intake system and intercooler, oil coating the inter-cooler internals affects it's thermal efficiency. Have a 2005 Duramax that is mildly modified, had have issues under high boost conditions with blowing the hoses off the boost tubes due to oil coating inside of the boost tube hoses.

Nice!! Their kit looks really good compared to some others. I need one for my 2.3. I called, they just need a vehicle to test fit and develop.

I am guessing you ordered direct from UPR?

Do any of the site sponsors carry this kit?

Correct, direct from UPR

Unknown at present if any site sponsors are carrying the UPR 2.7 kit, believe there's a post a few weeks back about one from Jaggernatpower that appears to be the UPR product but I can't state for certain that it is the same product. Quote from from that post inserted below




Plug and play catch can for the 2.7L listed as available. 2.3L version as well as CARB (California) legal versions in the works.
Came across it in a FB group. Use coupon code BRONCO6X for discount and free shipping.

In response to a question, they confirmed it can be removed in a minute or two if needed to comply with smog inspections. But note that the site says CA orders will be automatically refunded.

UPR has something of a sordid history. I will personally never buy from them.

you definitely made a good investment for you new Bronco but I'm curious if this set up will set off the check engine light like most of these catch cans do on turbos .... IMHO the better route will be a 3 port dual catch can set up

show me a company that's been in business for a while, that doesn't have it's supporters and detractors, my personal opinion of UPR and their product at this point in time is neutral pending installation and testing.

Case in point, all that someone has to do is read the posts on the Bronco6G forum, and one would have to conclude that Ford also has a sordid history, and then look at the same people stating that fact and then are still buying from Ford.

With that said I personally do not have any issues with Ford or the way they conduct business.

I don't see why it should set any codes, unless it isn't maintained and emptied as needed, will update after installation if it causes codes to be set.

Isn’t a catch can unnecessary at stock boost levels?
catch cans are a very debatable subject, lots of pros and cons, do your own research and remember you can't believe everything you see and read whether it's positive or negative about the subject.

UPR's history is darker than just having "detractors." They're in the category with Hennessy and JR Granatelli.

I have the prototype @Mishimoto dual can set up in my 2.7. We have to put 1k miles on the bronco and get it back to them and then they get it in production. I"ll take some pics tonight.
