cobrajet429 Nothing yet. I have 29,000 . My MPG is the same.

chumlee Has anyone taken pics of the valves as suggested by an earlier post? Has anyone installed a can? Anyone with high mileage have problems with carbon buildup? Believe this is a relevant topic which should be continued as mileage build up for the MK3's.

jcw122 Does anyone know if TORQUERULES ended up following through with this mod or not?

TboneZX3 A PCV catch can is a great idea. Unfortunately the PCV system in the NA Focus is difficult to access due to the PCV and oil separator being obscured by the intake manifold. I don't believe anyone has successfully installed one yet.

jcw122 Steeda replied to my inquiry stating that it's not applicable since the NA is not turbo'ed, and they aren't sure it would fit since it was designed for the ST. So...not really any help there.

Gi_Jo_Nathan Don't see why that couldn't be made to work on an NA.

Looks like Steeda has a solution for the ST.

cobrajet429 The gradual decrease in power over time would be hard to detect seat of the pants.

Yeah I mean, I guess thats all I'm saying.. But I've seen plenty of foci's about with well over 50 thousand plus miles on them and none of them even know what cleaning a DI is or how you'd do it lol. So I'm guessing its one of those things you can do but it doesn't matter.
