Thanks all. Any questions or needed clarification, just ask.


Also, this short video shows what causes most of the hydrolock piston/engine failures in the Ford Ecoboost to demonstrate. No it is not the same engine, but if you Google search "Ecoboost Engine Failures" you will find thousands of examples of these failures:





Our design makes sure this can't be ingested all at once, but cheap cans absolutely can. This video shows what was extracted out of the crankcase and dirty oil so you can see how severe the accumulation can get. This is comparable to our E2-X Ultra system.

Again, not making comments on Elite Engineering's catch cans.... just the concept of hydrolocking an engine due to oil.

The video said that was over 130 miles.... assuming the deposit was even (unlikely but still...) that's about 2 ml per mile.... assuming a few thousand revolutions per mile as well... that's like .002ml of oil per mile.

So if there was no catch can, the oil would have been blown into the motor via the PCV system a few .000ml at a time and would not have hydrolocked the motor.


Also, 130 miles? I know this is the 2013 EB's which are known for having very inferior PCV systems (it's the breather that's allowing all this oil as the new EB's have breathers that work alot like you are saying your Catchcan works), but I wonder if something is wrong with the car in that video... that's EXCESSIVE.



My point in all of this is, you don't run a risk of hydrolocking the engine from oil in the PCV without a catch can.... so if you choose to install a catch can, probably should get one that doesn't allow it to suck oil like a straw should it get full....

That video is 20 minutes....

Care to summarize? or atleast call out the particular time-stamp you are suggesting?

It appears to be about GDI engines, which the LS7 is not but just in case there is a nugget of information in there, I'd be all ears.
