It catches oil from the crankcase ventilation and keeps it out of the intake. Oil in the combustion mix just takes away from the power. I would much rather keep the oil where is supposed to be.

This is my next mod however I'm not going to buy an off-the-shelf catch can. I'm going to use some schedule 40 PVC tube, cap, and ends to build my own. A little carbon fiber vinyl and paint and it'll be functional and presentable. Just an idea from a mad scientist...

Sounds too "farm". Don't cobble something together like that and stick it under the hood of your beautiful ride. What are you gonna mount it to the motor with, duct tape?

Re: Jlt iol seperator

I've got a good sense of humor, I can laugh at the duct tape reference however... I'm an Engineer. I've built and restored many vehicles, including several full bore race cars, classic Porsche's, etc. When I say I'm gonna make a catch can that looks decent, I am... You don't realy have to beleive me or not. Did you notice that the oil seperator they show in that video is just floating there, not attached to anything except the rubber hoses that feed the oil to and from the catch can? Well, I'm not trying to start anything other than to open you mind a bit so that you don't always have to buy a shiny $100+ metal can in order to "Do it properly"... Sure, that will work but I think I can do it better, and I will...

I would honestly like to see Ur creation of this. In Ur own personal way. I always like to see something that's fabricated from people's mind.

I am an mechanical engineer by trade as well. Been so for 20+ years. From what you describe doing its what we would call farm. Yes you can design a decent canister but that isn't going to come from PVC pipe. The shiny meal collection can as you call it isn't just suspended between two rubber lines. Rubbers flexible as you know so it wouldn't stay up there. It is actually a formed section of plastic pipe with the correct fittings to interlock with the oem connectors. It's a well engineered unit. My comment is why cobble something up with PVC on the cheap. You can wrap it in whatever you want but it will still look like something thrown together on the farm. Whats next, Campbell's soup can collectors?

I wouldn't use PVC and I think that JLT makes a good product for the money. There are catch can kits for less but the formed lines and fittings make it worth the extra $

Re: Jlt iol seperator

That's good to know the lines are formed plastic, that would make the JLT catch can more secure than being secured from flexible tubing, so thanks for the feedback. Agreed, it's better for the engine to not be injesting oil down the intake tract. For anyone who already has a catch can or catch can's, can you tell us do you see more oil in the can from the passenger side, and how much oil do you get from the driver side by comparison?

Passenger side see most oil. Drivers side very little. But any oil is too much if it can be prevented.

Forgot to mention that the oil separator has a wire mesh insert in the top where the lines enter and exit. That knocks the oil out of suspension with the air so it will collect in the can.
