I just had RX Performance install one of their excellent catch cans and one way oil breather . Seeing is believing when we pulled the throttle body and looked down the intake runners at the back of the intake valves there were already some deposits from oil misting! This engine only had 2600 miles at the time! To those wondering why you get smoke when you go catless, this is the reason. Run a catch can on the ecoboost
2014 "Torrie 93 Octane Tune " Explorer 3.5l Ecoboost JMS Boost Max, JMS Pedal Max,3 Bar Map, AEM Dry Panel, RX Performance Catch Can and One Way Oil Breather,170° T-Stat, BOV's vent to atmosphere, no plastic engine cover to trap heat, rear hood gasket removed to let out heat


Did you get any results like on pg 2 of this thread:

Results seem to be varied across vehicles.  Maybe coz the engine is still breaking in?
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!
