sorry, I have tried the search, & cant seem to find the information I am looking for. I recently purchased a new 2018 F150 3.5 Ecoboost. I completed the first oil change early at 3900 kilometers, or around 2400 miles for you Americans. I though oil was pretty black in appearance for a new engine, & had a gassy fuel dilution odor. I sent a sample to Fluid Life in Edmonton for Analysis.
Once I get results back I will share them.
I replaced oil with a store Brand, (Canadian Tire Formula 1) Shell Manufactured Synthetic Oil, & a Baldwin Filter.
I am having trouble finding the specs for a Ford filter, efficiency rating, & concerned about the differences in bypass settings. I have heard from other sources that some feel that adding an aftermarket oil separator catch can is beneficial to preventing the intake valves from carbon buildup, & might install a Team RXP, dual valve RX catch can, or UPR 5030-221-1 separator in the future. Would be monitoring oil through analysis to log if there is any benefit, or all gimmick.
The following is all I have found for Fords filter specs, I have attached a Baldwin summary as well
