The hose is designed to be that long so it's not a straight shot and also allows for more volume before it enters the catch can which allows for better coalescing. The hose should run straight down and the curve at the fuse panel like an S shape to allow for the best oil control. A straight shot creates too much airspeed and the Ford engines allow for too much oil to be sucked out by the intake vacuum.Just installed my pass side catch can. Well sorta
why is the VC hose so freaking long?
It could stand to be a hair shorter , like 4-6”
The drain line kit is a much cleaner setup when you have the space to install it below the UPR catch can. The setup makes draining a lot easier and much less headache. You can mount the drain line kit remotely to easily access it by just reaching under the car and having a short drain pan. We offer a stainless drain valve with braided hose and nickel fittings.I read a lot about those catch cans. But never saw a video or direction about how to get the 5030 empty ? the 5028, seems to need to be unscrew ( my feeling ) but what about the 5030? And if someone ever added the drain line kit? Would it be easier to drain? In my understanding of that drain line, when you lift the car, you can open the drine line valve isn't it? so this drive line seems to be essential ?
