    I've seen the Mishimoto can installed and can tell you that it fits perfectly and comes with molded, silicone hoses. That's a huge plus, in my opinion.

    I would go UPR. The hoses come with quick connects on both ends that work much better than the factory ones.

    I have heard more talk about the UPR -- I have a Mishimoto and it grabs oil, but people say that the UPR is better.
    Sorry I can't be of more help -- I like mine and think it does a good job.

    I have the mishimoto oil can and am happy with mines. I too heard that UPR is better but don't know. Guess it comes down to price and preference. But I know that if you plan on keeping your stang for the long term that the oil can is a must.

    Adam at Tune+ basically insisted I get the UPR dual valve. The Mishi and JLT only work the dirty side. The UPR does both and includes check valves.

    And that polished can looks darn good in my engine bay...

    How hard was that to install? I looked at the instructions they were pretty basic, not really showing me a whole lot.

    Mine was pretty easy --- it went on the PCV hose connections. Hardest thing was to get the fingers up at the connections.

    I was watching this thread looking for recommendations too. While it does look like the UPR might be better, the idea of drilling holes into my intake tract before the turbo was a little offputting in their installation instructions. I ordered the Mishimoto, so I'll install it before July...

    Your watching OLD info!!! The UPR comes with the silicon intake to turbo connection that T's off to the can...no drilling.....As I'm writing this, I checked out UPR's site. The install info is OLD. Cancel the Mishi....Call UPR...561.588.6630

    This post I copied has been here for over 2 years...with 0 responses????? That says to me, that this company has been on track with our motors before we knew what was going on. This is the can that Adam Tune+ swears by...with the no drill coupler version


    What is the most important reason to go with a UPR Dual Valve Catch Can System over a Single Valve ?

    The reason is simple to explain and makes perfect sense.

    A Single Valve Catch Can will do a good job. But because the PCV will still be able to push air/oil backwards out the unprotected side through your intake stream it will not be able to function properly. Reducing Performance and MPG at WOT.

    The UPR Dual Valve Catch Can System will do the best job because it will not only protect your system while cruising. It has the second valve to rely on during WOT. When your engine goes into boost it will be able to provide a very strong vacuum for crankcase evacuation improving MPG and Overall Performance.

    This is something that a Single Valve or Twin Catch Can System will never be able to do. When they are under WOT they both just pressurize the crankcase and allow pressure to be on top and on bottom of the piston. The key is protect your engine and make it more efficient not less. This is why vacuum pumps are so effective because they are under constant one direction suction controlling the direction the oil flows.

    This is the same thing as a Dual Valve Catch Can System accomplishes by having the UPR WOT Dual Valve Setup. So when the engine goes into boost the intake tube gets pressurized and closes the check valve and stops you from boosting your catch can and crankcase, resulting in higher boost and more power. Now the WOT line becomes active utilizing the vacuum from the inlet side of the turbo creating a stronger vacuum to compensate for the extra scavenging and oil control needed.

    This is the only way to provide the proper evacuation throughout the RPM range with turbo's and supercharger's. These systems are the only choice on the Ecoboost platform for optimum results and performance.

    So if I order from them, can I get your kickback? UPR hasn't posted here in nearly 2 years, so we don't have a discount code from them. I like supporting vendors that support the community. If the vendor I bought the Mishimoto from started carrying the UPR today and I could use my discounts for it I'd consider cancelling and re-ordering.

    While I understand the technical reason, I also understand that any company who makes a change to their product but doesn't change their installation instructions to reflect that change is doing only half the job.
