Mishimoto R&D: 6.7L Powerstroke Direct-Fit Catch Can Kit

Hey everybody,

Mishimoto is excited to announce that we're developing a direct-fit catch can kit for the 2011-2016 and 2017+ 6.7L Powerstroke! Check out our review of the stock CCV system below and let us know what you think!

Thanks,
-Steve



Dirty Work Ė Oil Catch Can Kit R&D, Part 1: Stock Review


The most rewarding work is hard work. But hard work is often dirty work. If youíre a car or truck enthusiast, you know the feeling of accomplishment you get from the hard work of fixing or modifying your vehicle. You also know the struggle of trying to scrub away the grime from under your fingernails afterwards.

Few people know the reward of hard work more than those who work on diesel trucks or those who use them every day to make a living. Youíd be hard-pressed to find a construction site, landscaping job, or farm without a diesel truck somewhere nearby. If the owner of that truck is really serious about hard work, itís likely a Ford Powerstroke. Fordís latest addition to the Powerstroke lineage, the 6.7L, has been serving hard-working Americans since 2011. The 6.7L Powerstroke is one of the best engines ever fitted to Fordís Super Duty trucks, but itís not without its flaws.


If youíve ever pulled an intercooler pipe off a 6.7L Powerstroke, you know just how much blow-by makes its way into the intake and turbo system. This blow-by is full of carbon, oil, fuel, water, and other byproducts of combustion that have made their way past the piston rings and into the crankcase.


Blow-by gushing from the CCV system of our 2011 6.7L Powerstroke

To keep the crankcase from becoming over-pressurized, the 6.7L vents the blow-by into the turbo inlet to be reburned with the rest of the intake air. But, before it gets back to the cylinder to be burned, the blow-by coats the turbo compressor wheel and hot-side intercooler pipe. Then, it fills the tiny channels in the intercooler and covers the cold-side intercooler pipe before spreading itself all over the intake. This blow-by eventually builds up to the point that it affects the engineís exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system, lowers the intercoolerís efficiency, and coats the intake valves in carbon; all of which reduces the amount of power produced from your 6.7L Powerstroke.

I just got caught in the mishimoto deal of unloading old parts myself. Not a single one of those guys at support before or after buying the ORIGINAL radiator made any mention that it was an old version. Now im out of town with a truck who wont cool worth a damn towing 5000 lbs in 95 degree weather.

All I gotta do is choke up another 300 bucks and roll the dice again for an updated one.

Not at all pleased with how itís been handled so far. I could have gotten the right tool for the job and done it once. Now Im ****ed.

Is mishimoto still on this site? Iíve pm them and itís been crickets.

I received this customer's PM on Friday and forwarded their concerns to our customer service team. Our customer service team is not in the office over the weekend and we were off for the Labor Day Holiday.

The customer purchased the radiator off of Ebay, not from us directly, but we are doing what we can to help them. As I've said previously, the F2D-03 radiator is designed for light-duty/unmodified trucks and is not an outdated or old-stock product. We've reached out to our distributors to remove mentions of "performance" benefits from marketing information, but we cannot control how every seller communicates. Customer service should be getting back to this customer shortly.

Thanks,
-Steve

Hey everybody,

Check out the next update to this product development below! We're getting really close to a pre-sale for this catch can, so keep an eye out for the next update too!

Thanks,
-Steve

Dirty Work Ė Oil Catch Can Kit R&D, Part 2: Design


Connecting our catch can to the factory 6.7L CCV system is not be a simple task. In order for our catch can to protect the engine, we need to intercept the blow-by between the CCV filter box and the valve cover. To make matters more difficult, the CCV filter boxes in both the 2011Ė2016 and 2017+ bolt directly to the engineís valve cover with only a few centimeters between them and the firewall. That means clearance for lines or adapters is extremely tight. Fitting lines within this area in a way that retains the filter box and still flows enough to let the massive 6.7L crankcase breathe requires a clever design and precise measurements.


When our measurements need to be accurate down to the millimeter, we break out our 3D laser scanner. The Faro Design ScanArm measures surfaces at 560,000 points per second and is sensitive enough to map the ink on a sticker, making it perfect for designing parts in small spaces. To start our measuring process, we began by mapping the firewall and valve cover area with the CCV filter box on. This scan will be used to check clearances between the filter box and the firewall to tell us how much space we have available.
