Not trying to call you out or anything but i just went FI as well and anytime someone has an issue with their car i want to see exactly what caused it so i can look out for signs haha.
Pretty sure she said Kraftworks. Does Kraftworks come with a tune? I see a ECUTEK but does it come with a tune? You may be guessing where I am going with the questions.

Yeah, Kraftwerks. But the data doesn't support her claim. There are literally thousands upon thousands of Rotrex SC units in use with no failures. I'm not saying it isn't possible only that it is highly improbable as long as it was maintained properly. Sounds like the engine failed, but the Rotrex didn't cause it.

TL;DR
Catch cans are great preventive measures, dual cans for FI, single for NA.

A catch can prevents oil from entering the intake.

You have compressed air & fuel in the cylinder, spark ignites it, expanding gas moves the piston.

Sometimes the pressure pushes past the piston and enters the crankcase (which is full of oil). There is a positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve to release pressure, which is routed by a house back into the intake. This results in oil collecting in the intake manifold, valves, etc.

A catch can is placed between the PCV valve and intake, allowing the oil to condense and collect in the can (if it's a baffled catch can).

This will help keep components free of "gunk". Keep in mind the Twins D4S (direct/port fuel injection) will help clean the valves: port injection = fuel on valves, and fuel is an excellent solvent.

*I'm no expert on the matter, just sharing the knowledge I acquired through research here and online.

In regular GDI cars this can really extend engine life (in theory anyway) by preventing oil/gunk/carbon from collecting on the backside of the intake valves. In our car, the intake valves aren't dry so it's less of a concern. But that oil and gunk does get mixed with the air/fuel mixture and can effectively reduce the fuel octane (at least during those times when there's blow by).

It's an easy mod. If done right there's no down side and can only help but does require some upkeep

A couple of people have now asked you what kind of power your boyfriend was running - just helpful to know what power levels these engines are blowing at - the more data the better etc.....

Unless I've missed a reply (in which case sorry), it is annoying how you will happily go to the community for help, but are unwilling to give something back.

A question I would of been asking is what color is the metal material they found in the motor? This will lead you to what failed and when you know what failed then you can start asking the questions as to why.

As others have stated there are plenty of people out there running various breads of superchargers. The fact of the mater is your run FI you need to do more maintenance to maintain reliability, I don't care how good your setup is. You neglect maintenance your gunna have a bad time.

Good luck with the new motor!
