Ecoboost Fuel Injection

Recommended Posts

I heard the latest generation Ecoboost added port injection to prevent buildup on the intake valves. Has this been effective. Are people still installing "catch cans" on the new Ecoboost?

It was added for emissions, the side benefit is it helps clean the valves. Toyota has the same setup on the 3.5 in the Tacoma.

 

As far as catch cans, that's a personal choice. If I was going to keep the vehicle and work it hard I would install one.

 

Mine's a lease so I'm not worried about it.

Thanks. I am hearing the catch can is not as big a deal with the port injection serving to clean the valves. I'm getting a Navigator, so I don't expect to work it very hard. Thanks for the reply.

Catch Cans - LOL.  Who said "A Fool and his money are soon parted"????

 

I've got 2 Gen 1 EB 3.5s. 

 

#1 in a 2010 SHO - 138k no catch can and it runs as great as the day it rolled off the line.  Smooth idle, performance, and the only issue is the startup rattle that the early ones are known for.  Fully expect to get 150-200k before I think about the timing chains.

#2 in a 2011 F150.  101k no can and it spends the summer towing a 10k camper.  So worked hard.  Runs as good as the day I bought it at 38k.  Outside of exhaust manifolds, it has been rock solid.

 

Cans are not needed on the EB 3.5.  As a matter of fact one of the can manufacturers could not provide dyno or other data to support his claims of performance.

Thank you. As I started looking into it, it seemed unnecessary, but just wanted to hear what some of your thoughts. I appreciate it.
