They come in 2.3 L EcoBoost I4 as well.
Yup and I bought it... but it doesn’t fit the ranger. ? For the 2.3L mustang, Ford makes 2 the Pcv and CCV side. I bought the CCV side (turbo side) but it doesn’t fit the ranger and can’t easily be made to do so, therefore I had to send it back.

I understand why this might dissuade some from installing the Ford system, but I don’t see how they can point to this for a warrantee denial. It is designed by Ford engineers to keep the blow-by crud out of the intake system! I personally do all my own maintenance and if I were to suspect that there could be an issue in bringing the truck in for a warrantee item, I would simply un-plug it and re-connect the original lines.
I am anxiously awaiting its arrival for sale on the Ford Performance site for my ordered Ranger that is due in at my dealer tomorrow.

To be clear, the reason Ford is selling this product is because they think enough people will buy it that Ford can make a profit.

“Competition use only” ?
Costs a lot of money & red tape to get it CARB certified. They obviously know the DI design creates valve carbon build-up.

We are all welcome to our own opinions. I for one feel that there are numerous ways for Ford to make profits without expending as much effort in design and testing as has been done on this dual system (PCV/CCV).
