Black JLT Oil Separator - Necessary?

Black JLT Oil Separator - Passenger Side (11-14 GT)

Is the above part necessary. I don't see how ford would allow a car to go into production if the excess oil sprayed into the engine would be damaging. I want to protect the engine, but is this part really going to provide any enhancement performance wise? Hp, torque, mpg? anything specific?

Just curious if anyone has one of these and if so is it a noticeable change?

I dont know much about what exactly is going back into the engine but I have one and every two weeks it is half full of what looks like gas and oil mixed together, not so sure its a bad thing that it goes back into the engine but it works, and looks good too, no hp or gains what so ever

JLT catch can doesn't catch all the oil. I switched to breathers cause I had oil in the tube after the can.

A specific group of people are going to come tell you that I'm wrong, but with breathers you are allowing oil vapor into your engine compartment. You might not notice it, but it's there ... getting all over everything. I wouldn't run them on a street car that gets driven often - just my 2c.

If/when my JLT breaks I will replace it with a better designed unit such as the UPR or Moroso.

I'd rather have to clean up the engine bay a little more often than have oil getting past that crappy jlt can like I was seeing.

I don't get that much on mine. Maybe a quarter of a can every couple of weeks or so. Don't know the ins and outs about them. But they do seem to work. And hey for the price, if it helps the longevity of the engine. Then I'm in.

Installed the catch can on my 3.7 the first day I took delivery of the car. Finally checked it after 1850 miles.

Been running them for over a month and no oil everywhere....long as you clean them your fine....

My engine compartment may have dirt everywhere but not oil. You'd feel the oil. Isn't there.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this depends on how you drive. I stand on the accelerator at every chance, which is likely why I fill up more than others. I am NA for now, so a can is fine for my purposes

So the difference between the two is what exactly?
From what I can tell they both do the same thing, filter out oil and gas, but in different ways. The JLT does seem easier to install....

Lol. The breathers r super easy. 5 min install. The breathers completely eliminate the chance of oil going into ur intake. The jlt can does not.

Took my breathers off and reinstalled in .54 seconds. Lmao. Naw. But it took less then a minute to disconnect hose. Then you slip on breather and tighten it down with a flat head. I got my unborn child to help.
I think it was $70 for both pass and driver side. Came with everything you need.

everything you need for both sides. Plugs, breathers, etc.

$240 from JLT to do an 80% job that the breathers do 100% job on for $60...

If your gonna waste money on a k&n drop in filter, might as well waste all you can by supporting a good company like AM.

Thinking about buying some as well. How often do you have to clean the filters? Mines a DD, and i drive a TON of miles, so im wondering if the catch cans may be better for me.

I put 1120 miles a month on the car minimum. That is just me driving too work. Not counting everything else. I clean them once a month at this point. They don't stop working because they are super oily. Then only thing that might happen if you don't clean them enough is oil might actually get in the engine bay.

Awesome. Im gonna go ahead and order a pair then. $60 is definitely worth the extra protection.

I guess I didn't notice before how much farther the passenger's side breathers stuck out than the drivers side. Maybe a factor in the whole low-pressure, high-pressure jib-jab?

Passenger side has the PCV valve, driver side doesn't

Its actually the opposite. The more you get on your accelerator then LESS the engine is in vacuum therefore its sucking in less. I babied my car for the first ~1000 miles and installed a bobs oil seperator and check it at around 2000 and it had a good amount of oil in it. I will post pictures when I get home. Love the bobs oil separator btw its top notch. I got the carbon fiber finish and it looks awesome.

In reading about this (catch can verses breather filters), I found that installing filters deletes the engines vacuum ability to remove it's gases and water vapor. I installed a breather filter on the drivers side, as this side draws in fresh air into the crankcase. On the passenger side, you want the PVC and a tube from it connected to the intake. This has the vacuum at needed at idle, when the intake pressure is higher than the crankcase, allowing for the gas fumes/blowby to be drawn from the crankcase, and into the intake to be burned. Without this tube connected to the intake, and using just a breather filter as I had done initially, does not get the gases/blowby out of the crankcase as well, and can contaminate the oil.

Place a catch can inline with this tube to seperate any of the oil mist within this tube, and preventing it from contaminating the throttle body/seats of the valves.

In short, here's what was recommended:


•Leave the PCV exactly as it is and ensure it is clean and functioning correctly
•Enlarge the outlets from the crank case for breathing purposes
•Add a good catch can inline with the breather hose(s)
•If legal, vent the breather to the atmosphere through a smallish filter rather than into the intake or turbo inlet

To me, this sounds like using the catch can on the drivers side, but then the outlet of the catch can is connected to a filter, rather than the intake.
