New Ford Performance oil separator.

Ford Performance has come out with a new oil separator for the 11-16 coyote 5.0. I'm not sure if they have the lines out yet for the supercharged applications. A guy on this forum Lethal Performance NEW PRODUCT: Ford Performance Coyote 5.0L Air-Oil Separator! - 2015+ S550 Mustang Forum (GT, GT350, GT500, I4, V6) - Mustang6G.com bought one and installed it.

So there is another option out there and this one says "Ford" on it for the purists out there.

That's what I thought after seeing the inside pictures of it. Basically it only has the screen to prevent oil from going into the intake and I don't know if that's enough.

Does that look hard to empty to anyone but me? Odd that they would make it look like that too, so different from everyone else's......

From what I understand, it uses those plastic push pins to mount it to the edge of the valve cover and it has Ford factory quick connect connectors to remove it from the lines. It probably is easier to remove than it seems. You than remove the four screws to the lid to dump it. I guess you could also use a turkey baster or something like that to just suck the oil out once you got the lid off without removing the main body.

The biggest question is how well does that screen work. It looks pretty fine but I guess oil film could still get through it.

I'm very interested... I love the look, as it will appear factory. But my car is a daily driver, and this looks like it will be hard to empty every week. No Bueno! I'm waiting for somebody to try it first.

I don't think it needs to be emptied every week as it looks like it has a rather large reservoir.

Go to American Muscle and you can purchase either Silver or Black one for $119.99, with free shipping. The other one is overpriced and cheap looking.

Open it up and lets get a view of the inside. That's really the only way to tell if its a paperweight or an oil separator.

Follow the original link. All the pics you want from every angle. Still not clear on Fords plan for emptying it.

If you are talking about the JLT catch cans, I have not read very many good things about them and I wouldn't put them on my car. You can buy a Bob's can which is a lot better one for less than the JLT.

I'm thinking about buying one, but first I'd like to know how you empty it, etc.

I don't mind paying a little more or having to replace the one I already have on my car, as I like the "Ford" branded parts. Makes the car look more OEM.

Go to the link I provided in the original post and it has all of my pictures that I took of it to include open ones.

So far Ford Performance has not put out the instructions for this product yet but just by looking at it, there are a few methods you can use to drain it.
1. Remove the separator from the car and either remove the top section and pour the oil out or leave the lid on and just pour out the oil through the inlet barb.
2. You can leave it mounted in the car and take off the lid and use a turkey baster or something like it to suck the oil out.

This thing only took me a few minutes to install so it should only take a few minutes to remove, dump oil out through barb, and re-install.

Here is a link to a different thread I started that has all of my initial pictures in the beginning of the thread for those of you that don't want to read through the original link I posted.
Here is the new Ford Performance oil separator for the 5.0

Do you think it's possible that Ford's intent is to allow the canister to fill, and self-drain back down the inlet? I hope not... Just curious.

I doubt it. Instructions for this are supposed to be coming out soon. They should have had them ready before selling the product though.

I see they finally put the instructions out. I also see they list this for the 2015-16 Mustang when all of the other information I've seen states it's for the 11-16 5.0 and not vehicle specific.

Those instructions that show "2015-2016 Mustang Oil Separator" are under the ford performance racing parts site and they say it "Fits 2011-2016 5.0L Coyote Engines". So maybe there are slightly different instructions for the 11-14.
Or not!

The instructions are pretty much the same for the 11-14. On my 14, I just removed the holder for the cam wires that was installed in the lower hole on the valve cover. I then installed the separator in the two holes on the valve cover and pushed the push pins down to secure it. I then installed the two lines and that was it. It took me longer to remove the little plastic cam wire holder from the lower hole than it did to install the separator.
