    Free to Roam - Catch Can R&D, Part 3: Test Results

    Our 2019+ Ford Ranger has been roaming the streets of Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey for the past 1,000 miles testing our direct-fit oil catch can. In this post, we'll be emptying the catch can to see what, if anything, it caught. If all goes to plan, we'll also be kicking off the pre-sale so you can protect your Ranger from blow-by, without blowing your budget.

    In our last post, we looked at the stock crankcase ventilation system on the 2019+ Ranger's 2.3L EcoBoost. We explained that the system was divided into two parts: the CCV side and the PCV side. The CCV side is active when the turbocharger is pressurizing the intake manifold, while the PCV side is active when cruising or idling. The CCV side also incorporates a pressure sensor that we've fought with

    The 2.3L EcoBoost in the 2019+ Ranger was designed to preserve the earth so that you can roam it freely for years to come. It sips fuel while bounding across fields and crawling up dunes, but the 2.3L also sips something that might eventually send it to the landfill: blow-by. That's why Mishimoto has been working on a catch can to help protect your Ranger. In our last post, we looked at blow-by and how it can affect your 2.3L EcoBoost. In this post, we'll show what we're going to do about it.

    Before we discuss our design for the catch can kit, we need to learn about the Ranger's stock crankcase ventilation system. Because the 2.3L EcoBoost is turbocharged, its CCV system is split into two sides. One side of the system operates when the turbocharger is inactive and is known as the PCV

    Free to Roam - Catch Can R&D, Part 1: Introduction

    The 2019+ Ford Ranger was built to roam free. To go anywhere, anytime. It was built to roam the wilderness and the city streets; the mountain trails and the grocery store parking lots. No matter where you're going, the Ranger was built to take you there. And, thanks to its powerful, direct-injected and turbocharged engine, it's built to take you there quickly and efficiently.

    Since its inception in the early 1970s, the Ranger has always been a fuel-conscious, do-it-all truck. That mentality hasn't changed with its return to North America for the 2019 model year. Despite being smaller than its F-150 brother, the 2019 Ranger still boasts an impressive 7,500 lb. tow capacity and over 1,800 lbs. of payload capacity that help you roam with whatever you could need close behind. While the suspension
