JLT oil separator

Hello

Easy upgrade.

It takes longer to unlock your car and pop the hood than it does to install this.

Any performance gains if we do this? Or mostly for engine maintenance?

It keeps oil vapor and other blow by from entering your intake stream. It also helps reduce the amount of oil getting all over the inside of your intake manifold.


This is what I have caught in 6k miles.

And it's not that it keeps the motor "safe". It keeps it cleaner, which hopefully means it run better over the life of the motor. Nothing unsafe about blow-by, it's normal operation in nearly 100% of vehicles on the road. The PCV line (positive crankcase ventilation) is involved with EGR (exhaust gas recirculation), where a small amount of exhaust gas is run back into your intake. It reduces emissions. The only problem is that some of the oil vapors from the crankcase seep into the PCV line, and then condensate in your intake manifold, valves, etc. A small amount, it's not unsafe. Just dirty and not good for the life of your engine. The oil separator has a filter in the PCV line to take these vapors out. You just need to empty out the can every couple thousand miles.

I installed mine about a month ago. Got about 1.5 - 2 Tablespoons of oil in there first 1,000 miles. Mainly maintenance but since it keeps the oil out it keeps the octane up.

I empty mine every 2500 miles or so. Not bad it takes 2 seconds.

So even though most of these are listed for the 5.0 motor, there isn't any real difference between them? Shelby has a nice one, but no V6 "option".

By nice are you talking about looks? Performance wise there should be no difference. Heck, a lot of people build their own for a few bucks, you can look up how-to's on Google.

Ford racing has stated that JLT catch cans will prevent oil vapors from lowering your Octane that cold cause pinging on Ford Racing tunes. Back in the day many Ford engines has these Catch Cans; but with today's no maintenance mindset they don't work out for everyday folks that wont empty the oil collected.

Nice in looks yes. They have a black anodized one with the CS logo engraved on it. Too bad Roush doesn't have one that would be nice, but all things considered I know they are all pretty much the same... but it will fit if it's for a 5.0?

I'm pretty sure it would. But please don't take my word for it, I really don't know.
