Found an "open box" Corsa resonator delete for my truck

They sell for $220 new and this one was $110 shipped

I will see how it affects mileage, and sound

Corsa resonator delete arrived............very impressed with the quality.........304 stainless steel with a 3/8" thick flange

I will hopefully get some sound clips, before and after the install.......which looks VERY simple and straightforward

Who is running a 'catch can' on their truck?

Dual or single?

Some are $400 and some are $150, which and why?

I took off the charge pipe this weekend and its was pretty nasty, like a mocha oil/water mix coming out of the intercooler

I am not but did glance at doing one. I have 130k on mine and havent had any problems without one. Havent pulled the intercooler or any charge pipes though.

I did have a hiccup once while on a long road trip that i thought was due to high humidity/fog but it hasnt acted up other than that one time.

Post up what you end up doing or finding. Id be interested to see the setup.

Same thing happened to mine...except it happened 3 times for me. Drilled the weep hole and have never had an issue since.

I have also looked at catch cans but haven't decided what to do yet. I did drill a weep hole a while back and must have had 1/2 a quart if oil and what not come out. I am at 84,xxx miles so time will tell if that was a good idea but it was a bit alarming to see what was in the CAC.

Stock resonator is OUT and the Corsa delete pipe is IN

Removal went smooth, broke off the two bolts on the flange end the broke the bolt on the clamp in

Heat from a torch loosened up the clamp up fast and a large pipe wrench helped to turn and loosen it

Total install time was an hour

Nice rumble at idle.........sounds pretty damn good for a V6. I will drive it tomorrow and see how it does on the road

I have a '17 transit t350 being built right now. If there is any room under the hood I might throw a catch can on it. Anything else you guys might recommend doing on a new one after having one for 100k?

I am running Full-Race's Catch Can, different design than UPR's and such. So far have had it on for about 3K miles and have gotten about 16-20oz of fluid with it. Watery, milky smelly liquid.....glad to its not being suck into my intake and potentially beginning deposited on the valves. I have also recently drill the weep hole in the intercooler, so hopefully I won't have to worry about condensation.

Check out F150Ecoboost Forum classifieds, there are usually a few catch cans up for sale because of guys upgrading to +15 models.

How's the resy delete tube sound?

The delete pipe sounds great, very pleased with it..........for $110 shipped it was a deal, but not sure I would spend $220 on it

Can barely hear any noise difference in the cab, just a tad mellow increase

Outside at idle it is also just a tab louder, deeper

Definitely not loud and not like a weed wacker

I might be crazy, but I swear the truck accelerates better and feels much more responsive down low

had to take my '12 (75k) in to the dealer last week. had a nasty miss under acceleration. drilled the weep hole and had a good amount of mocha colored fluid come out but the problem still existed. dealer looked at it and had to perform tsb 13-10-10 on it. runs better than ever now.

Well the dealer can't find the constant clunk, which only happens on acceleration

They can duplicate it, but cannot fix it

Pathetic......I am going to try to tighten the differential mounting bolts ( which on some Raptor trucks are loose or work loose?) and also try swapping in the Raptor V8 trans mount, which they claim to help with driveline vibs because it uses a more dense rubber

If not, I am going to have the slip joints on the rear driveshaft greased and then look into new front shocks/struts

I honestly love them...........I am very glad I went this more simple route and cheaper route, compared to air bags

They are there when I need them, and go un-noticed when not needed

I have not noticed any of the harshness or bouncy ride, that some have warned of

Anybody put an AFE throttle body spacer on? A guy I know bought one, never put it on, and says he will sell it to me cheap. If it helps at all without tuning I figure it's worth a shot.

Honestly, I've always been pretty skeptical of them at all. Never put one on anything. The idea sounds good and all but then you have everybody saying they're useless. Turbo chargers make me even more skeptical that it'd make a difference. But for twenty bucks I'm tempted to see.

I ran an aFe TB spacer and an aFe cold charge pipe

I did not see any MPG gains, but maybe a slightly smoother acceleration

I did not like how the charge pipe fit to the intercooler, so both parts were taken off

I am currently running a VMAX throttle body

Time to change the oil in my expedition. What oil is everyone using? I plan to get motorcraft filters from rockauto but need to figure out what oil to get.

Mobil 1 full synthetic here.

Side note: Up to 137k miles on my echo with no issues at all other than regular maintenance! (Minus a trans reflash at 52k)

Used some online coupons and bought some Moog links at Advanced Auto

Definately thicker and much more heavy duty than the stockers

They were like $30 each!! The links for my friends 2011 Silverado were $20 for a set

Oh well, hopefully they cure the clank

Again, simple.......simple install

As easy as removing the top nut and removing the bottom nut, do this on both sides first

Then, just lift up the end of the sway bar about 2" and the stock end links will come right out

I did not have to use a jack or anything, just my cordless impact driver

On the reinstall, it did help to turn each tire/wheel out of the way slightly

The stockers did not have a zerk grease fitting, but these Moogs did

I was kind of surprised that the two mounting nuts were not nylon lock nuts, so I used some blue Loctite on reassembly

The Moogs also did not come with a grease fitting cap, thankfully I have a few on hand
