Review & Install Video
Hey. What's going on guys? Adam here with www.americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed review of the JLT 3.0 Passenger Side, Air Oil Separator, available in either anodized or black options, fitting all '07 to '14 GT 500s. So in this video, I'll be talking about the functionality of the JLT 3.0 Oil Separator and it's operated materials and construction, but I'll even walk you through the installation which I'll tell you will be very simple, anything for a novice to take care of, which will get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Let's jump right into it.
The JLT 3.0 Passenger Side, Air Oil Separator in either black or anodized will be for all '07 to '14 Shelby GT 500 owners out there looking to pick up a part to reduce engine oil sludge from robbing your engine of its performance, as well as reducing the blow by. So, if you're not entirely aware of what an oil separator or also known as a catch can can do, let me explain it to you in a nutshell. An oil separator also known as a catch can, will help prevent oil from sludging up and corrupting your engine, robbing it of its performance, and also prevent blow by which is actually crankcase, exhaust gases which will build up in your engine intake manifold. And since we're speaking of a forced induction Shelby GT 500, it will also stop it from building up in your super charger.
JLT has provided us with a lot of oil separators in the past which have gotten great reviews. They've since upgraded to the 3.0 version you see here today. Now, this one offers a lot of upgraded features and I've actually opened one up to show you what's inside. This one offers a three ounce capacity oil catch can which is almost double their other versions in the past, and some of the other options on the market. Up top here, you'll see they've upgraded from a pre-filter from Ford Motorcraft, to a half inch thick, one sixth aluminum honey comb filter, with a stainless steel screen to help prevent even more oil vapors from building up in your engine. Overall, this thing offers a ton of pros and virtually no cons.
So, to elaborate on materials and construction, other than the upgrades I just mentioned, this is manufactured right here in the USA CNC machine from a solid aluminum block offers a rubber o-ring for a tight lid free seal, and mold textured finish right here on the bottom for good grip while you're performing routine oil changes. All on top of that, offered in a black or anodized finish to fit each of your preferences.
Now, honestly in my personal opinion, there's absolutely no reason why any of the Shelby GT 500 owners I just mentioned will pick up this oil separator simply because it does nothing but good under your hood. Expect to pick it up for just about 140 bucks and like I said, offers a lot of pros, and I don't really see any cons here guys. So, there's a lot of bang for your buck with this product.
Now, installation wise you can expect to get this done in just a few minutes and it won't even require any hand tools. All you have to do is simply unplug the factory hose and replace it with this particular JLT 3.0 Passenger Side Air Oil Separator with its quick plug connectors. Once it's plugged in, you're good to go. Again, a couple of minutes to get it done, definitely giving this one a one of the three wrenches on our difficulty meter.
Well guys, just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2007 or a 2014 Shelby GT 500, and you're looking for a part to pick up to help prevent oil from sludging up and robbing you of your performance while also reducing any blow by, a moment to check out the JLT 3.0 Passenger Side Air Oil Separator and your choice of either black or anodized finishes, all available right here at americanmuscle.com.
Reduces Engine Sludge.
A JLT Version 3.0 Air/Oil Separator (sometimes known as a catch can) will stop engine sludge from hampering the performance of your supercharged Shelby GT500. Crankcase exhaust gases (better known as blow-by) is an oily vapor that re-enters through your engines PCV system and will gradually coat the inside of your supercharger and intake manifold. Overtime this oily residue can thicken and become engine sludge robbing you of power. A JLT 3.0 Separator is a must have upgrade for all GT500 owners that want to prevent the formation of this sludge in order to maintain peak power and performance.Version 3.0.
JLT improved on the designed of their old Oil Separator with the introduction of their new and improved Version 3.0. The first big change you will notice is that the Version 3.0 Separator has a larger 3 oz capacity, that is almost double that of their previous model. Another important difference is the filter media. Older JLT Separators used a Ford Motorcraft pre-filter, but now JLT uses a 1/2" thick 1/16th" aluminum honeycomb filter with a mesh stainless steel screen to trap even more fine oil vapors than before to prevent them from gumming up your engine.Superior Quality.
