My last two (one on my V6 and now one on my V8) worked very well, kept oil out of the lines and intake. (1st one about 2 years ago) And for Ford To recommend them, well that is another reason I use them.

My JLT seems to work just fine

It does pick up oil and the hose on the left PVC side is oily. The hose on the right is always pretty dry. I really can't find any downside to the JLT at all but I'm sure there are some better ones with some features the JLT don't have.

I think anything you use is way better then no catch can at all.

Any good write ups on how to install for a n00b?

I got a bobs motor sports I need to put on.

Why do we only put it on one side? Isn't there oil on the drivers as well?

Mine has a valve on the bottom. Is that to drain oil?

I'm a little lost.

I mounted the RX can in the corner of the engine compartment next to the brake booster but I had to remove the sound tube. That was the only place that it would fit. I think the Saikou Michi has the same type of bracket welded to the can body as the RX did.

Hey Wayne, I was thinking just in front of the passenger strut tower. Could also reroute the washer fill tube with some flex and drop it in there. I don't think it comes with brackets but thought I would likely be fabing my own anyway. It's pretty damn big 3x7.

Is your bobs letting oil by now?

That sounds like a good place. It does come with some kind of bracket but I'm not sure what.

My Bob's can just lets a slight film get by. It does do a very good job.

1. Route Intake manifold line to the top of the can, route PCV to the bottom, thats pretty much it. As far as mounting it, i opted for the firewall mount, so i drilled 2 holes in the firewall to attach it, but i believe their default point is the strut tower.

2. Pressure differential. The drivers side PCV is actually bringing fresh air IN the crankcase. There is a vacuum in your intake, but due to the throttle body it is limited, and therefore less, than the vacuum in your intake manifold. Since one side of crankcase is connected to the IM and the other to the intake, the air actually flows in the drivers side, through the crankcase, and out the passenger side into the IM.

3. Yes, that is to drain it. Its important to make sure that stays closed, as you'll have a vacuum leak (as well as a mess) if it is left open.

You didn't say which version you got but here are a couple of pictures of how my Bob's is mounted to my strut tower.

The PCV valve that is on the passenger side. Is there any way to remove it and put in a larger one?

The PCV valve does come out but I'm not sure how. Some people install the PCV valve from a GT500 which is supposed to slow the amount of oil that comes out of the valve.

I believe if you remove the coil cover it just Pushes in with a twist, kind of like your oil cap, and seals with an O-ring.
