    Ive done some research gathering information on this and reading other threads, but I’d rather get information from members here who are running the Livernois tune.
    Is the majority here using, or not using a catch can. I see the positives by lessening carbon buildup, and less wear on turbos. The negatives from what I read is the catch-can introduces pressure which “could” destroy motor. Please give me some feedback on which route to go. Thank you

    Where did you see that it could destroy your motor? Btw I run a RXP catch can system.

    Thanks for reply. I can’t remember exactly where I read this, but I think it may have been more in relation with dealer voiding power train issue because of catch can installed. I’ve also read on threads here from Livernois, that the catch cans provide no proven benefits.

    Iv'e been using this for 10k now. Just because what I read about ford's GDI engines collecting crap in the intercooler. Very little comes out at oil changes, but is more usefull in cold driving weather from what I heard. Last drain was the size of a beer can puddle. I would put this on any ford turbo. If I had any other car, I wouldn't be here. (empty beer can of course!!!!)
    Was RX when purchased. Who knows what it's called now. McNalley?

    Stock SHOs come with a oil separator built into the firewall valve cover, mine clogged and oil was oozing out of every intake tube and the maf jiggle joint dripping onto my valve cover. After RXP system I don't have that problem anymore....and it takes 15 mins to put back to stock before a stealer visit....

    Several brands listed as RXP but most a copy ripoff of the original engineer who made it. I think his name was Mcnaulty or something, the cheap versions are welded and made in china. Only thst above link and maybe summit racing has the real McCoy. Go to site and do your due diligence. I believe in this system and would recommend them and would buy it again. Btw mine is hidden under driver side wheel well which is also supposed to be best place for 2 reasons, 1st keeps in cool area away from engine heat which helps condense better and 2nd uses full length of hoses which also helps with condensing aspect.
