Review & Install Video
Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with a way to keep your Coyote motor clean, and sludge free, thanks to these JLT oil separators available in a black, or satin finish for all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. So what do these do? Well, just about every internal combustion engine has what’s called PCV, or Positive Crank Case Ventilation. Basically what this does, is allows the oily vapors and gases that are produced during combustion, to escape the block or crank case in a controlled manner. A lot of times these oils and gases are routed through a PCV valve or a breather tube, back into the intake track to eventually be burned off by your engine. The only problem with this is these vapors can eventually dirty up the intake manifold over time and in some very extreme cases can cause damage, or lower your octane rating by diluting your fuel. This becomes even more of an issue on supercharged or turbocharged cars, where crank case pressures are increased, causing even more of this oily by product to occur. That’s where these oil separators from JLT come into play, these mount in line with your Mustang’s PCV system to catch any excess oil vapors or sludge. As a matter of fact, we did install one of these on our 2011 GT here a little while back, and since then we’ve been doing some spirited driving, and a few Dyno pulls, probably totaling 50-60 miles. Let’s take a look inside and see what we’ve collected. Alright, well there you go, that would have otherwise ended up back into our intake manifold. Taking a closer look at the kit, you’ll notice it’s actually pretty simple. JLT uses a 2 ounce, Billet aluminum collector, that’s available in your choice or either a satin silver, or a black finish, They also include these two preinstalled factory hoses, making this a completely easy plug and play install that should take you no more than 30 minutes. All you need to do is remove your factory tube connected your valve to the intake manifold, and plug the new JLT setup in its place. You will notice there are two PCV hoses on your Coyote motor, one on the passenger side and one on the driver side, does this mean you need to run two oil separators? Well, JLT claims that 80% of the oil and sludge on the Coyote motor comes from one side. Of course running one for each side would be the best option, especially if you’re running a boosted setup, but that’s for you to decide. So if you want to invest in a product that will help keep your Coyote motor free from sludge, then going with a product like this JLT oil separator would be a great place to start.
