I have searched and can't find a how to on installing a catch can on a 4.7l engine for a 4th gen (I am hoping someone can prove me wrong).

Thank you

I'm pretty sure Rick (Hornet) has one on his 4.7, he'll chime in.

Sorry,i missed this one.

I have a Moroso can on my 4.7.
I like the Moroso can,as it has a valve that allows you to drain it.
I copied my buddy Audio1's idea of running a hose to the bottom of the frame,and adding an extra 1/4 turn ball valve.
The ball valve at the bottom prevents the hose from dripping on the garage floor

I used a Ford Mod motor can,as it had an easily modified bracket.
Mine bolts to the firewall by the brake booster.
The PCV line is on that side of the engine.
I cut and rewelded the bracket,and added a plate to it.
It wasn't hard to make it bolt to the firewall,but i did have to do some welding.
As far as i know,there isn't a 4.7 specific catch can,so you'll have to do some modding to make one work.
I'm a firm believer in them on 4.7's,i drain mine every couple thous kilometers,and it's always got a couple ounces of oil in it

Thanks Hornet! I will look at adding it....Just when I thought I was almost done. I like the idea of a drain hose. Thanks again for your help.
