New to the world of catch cans and trying to keep the truck in the best condition possible. Anyone have any opinions on the various models of catch cans out there? There is a massive price differential across manufacturers!

Thank you

I believe I read there are two injectors per cylinder. One DI and one on the valves.
Someone chime in if I am wrong but that is what my 2021 3.5 had.

Correct, they added port injection on top of DI in the 2nd gen EB

Port injection was added to the 3.5 Ecoboost in the 2017 model year.
And honestly, if the reason for adding a catch can to the 2011-2016 3.5 Ecoboost was concern for keeping the valves clean, history has now revealed that wasn't much to have worried about. In fact, there were probably more issues caused by altering the oem crankcase ventilation improperly than a catchcan ever prevented.

Finally, and on the Powerboost? I don't think I'd dare. Lol
The engine management on that amazing ensemble of of hardware under the hood is daunting. At least to me it is.
