Simple installation for anyone.
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.

Could be better
The JLT 3.0 oil separator for the GT500 fits good and works like its supposed to but, it could be made better with a bracket to actually hold the reservoir so it's not vibrating against the valve cover. They put a cheap little pad on the bottom of it to help but it still makes a mark on the valve cover and it will only wear into the valve cover over time. 5500 miles with it on my car now and it has made its mark. I will make my own bracket to make it better.Helpful (1)

The amount if oil this caught in a weeks time is insane. Bang for buck theres hardly a better mod. The fabrication quality I'd high and took less than 20 seconds to install from start to finish. The felt pad below helps reduce rubbing but in time may leave a mark on the valve cover.Helpful (1)

Looks good, 2 min. Install. I have no idea if it is just a gimmick or not. Will find out in a few thousand miles. See if it caught stuff or if it is clean and I just bought an expensive cup.Helpful (0)

Extremely simple to install. Probably took all of 60 seconds. Fit on my 2009 Shelby was perfect and it looks like it came from the factory that way.Helpful (0)

Should I run both driver and passenger side oil separators? If not which side is the one I should use.
The JLT V3.0 Black Oil Separator - Passenger Side for the 07-14 GT500 Mustang can be combined with the driver side for maximum blow by engine sludge protection. If you would like to use just one side, the passenger side is preferred side if you are using just one. I have provided the link to the driver side below for you. https://www.americanmuscle.com/jlt-oil-separator-v3-black-driver-0714gt500.html
On the V3.0 for the 2014 GT500, is the separator completely supported in air by the hoses or does it rest on the engine? Thank you!!
The separator will be supported by the included hoses. This will not sit on the engine.
Can I ask why this would be non California emissions compliant?
An oil separator is a filter that sits in between your Mustang’s crankcase and intake that will filter the oil out of the vapors travelling to your intake. Since this is slightly changing the air that is emitted from your vehicle, it is not considered legal in the state of California until the product is tested and certified.
Can anyone explain to me how this device benefits my engine? I understand that it separates the oil from the engine gasses. What I don’t see is how the oil being returned to the induction system in the factory system hurts anything, Seems to me this oil would be either burned in the combustion chamber, or blown out the exhaust.
The JLT V3.0 Black Oil Separator will remove the oil from the PCV system. You are correct that this normally would be burned in the combustion chamber, however excessive oil can cause deposits in the combustion chamber, and fouling of the spark plugs, as well as having oil rather than just air/fuel can cause incomplete/inconsistent burning of the air/fuel mixture.
