- How to Install JLT V3.0 Black Oil Separator - Passenger Side on your Mustang
Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a quick overview of the JLT 3.0 Oil Separator in your choice of either black or anodized, fitting all '11 to '17 GTs, '12 to '13 Boss 302s and '15 to '17 GT350s. So in this video, I'll be talking about the functionality of an oil separator, as well as its materials and construction. Toward the end, I'll even talk you through the installation process, which I'll tell you up front will get a very, very simple one-out-of-three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Let's jump right into it.The JLT 3.0 Oil Separator is gonna be for the '11 to '17 GT, the '12 to '13 Boss 302 or the '15 to '17 GT350 owner out there looking to pick up a part to reduce and actually prevent engine sludge from bogging down your engine's performance, all at the same time reducing blowby. Now if you're not entirely familiar with what an oil separator, otherwise known as a catch can, is or does, let me explain it to you in a nutshell. An oil separator can actually stop and help prevent oil sludge from robbing your engine of performance, as well as reduce blowby, which is essentially crankcase exhaust gases that escape into your intake manifold, robbing performance as well or if you're running a forced induction system, maybe even your supercharger. Now JLT has gracefully provided us with oil filters in the past which of course have gotten great reviews. However they've now upgraded to this new 3.0 version, which has a lot of upgraded features from the previous versions they've offered and also the other options on the market. This particular one comes with a three-ounce capacity, which is almost double what they've offered in the past. They've also upgraded their pre-filter, which before was using a Ford Motorcraft pre-filter. Now they've gone up to a half-inch thick one-sixth aluminum honeycomb filter with a stainless steel screen to help prevent even more oil vapors from gumming up your engine. Overall this thing offers a ton of pros and virtually no cons. Now to further elaborate on the materials and construction here, this one was manufactured right here in the USA and I've actually got one taken apart for you so you can see the stainless steel honeycomb backing here with the filter filtering down into the three-ounce capacity bottle. Now it all really just comes off with a simple screw of a top. Now with that said, this was all CNC machined out of a solid block of billet aluminum for superior strength, comes with a rubber O-ring for a leak-free seal, has a knurled, textured bottom here to actually give you grip while doing routine oil changes when you're taking this thing off here and obviously comes with your choice of either the durable black or the anodized finish to fit any preference.Now in my personal opinion, there is absolutely no reason why any of the aforementioned Mustang owners out there shouldn't pick this part up because it does nothing but good under your hood. You can expect to be picking it up for just about 140 bucks and again there are absolutely no cons, but a crap-load of pros. Now as far as the installation goes, guys, you won't even need any tools to get the job done. All you'll have to do is simply unplug the factory hose, replace it with the JLT 3.0 Oil Separator with its quick plug-in connectors here and you'll be good to go. Simply should take you just a minute or two to get the job done. I will absolutely be giving this one a one-out-of-three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Something easy enough for any novice to take care of. Well, just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of an '11 to '17 GT, '12 to '13 Boss 302 or '15 to '17 GT350, you might wanna check out the JLT 3.0 Oil Separator in your choice of either black or anodized to help reduce engine sludge and prevent blowby, which of course they're both available right here at americanmuscle.com.

JLT oil separator
Install was super easy, have not had a chance to open it up to check to see if it’s working but it gives me peace of mind the PCV valve is gone and not letting oil back into the throttle body and manifold.Helpful (0)

Don’t have much to say about it since I’ve only had it for a month but my buddy with same car has it and has had it for a while and he’s never said anything bad about it so I decided to get oneHelpful (0)

When I first got it out of the box, I thought the connectors were twisted at an odd angle. Turns out they were turned EXACTLY as they should be. It was a perfect fit and took literally two-three minutes including opening and closing the hood. The knurled bottom of the can makes it easy to twist off and replace without removing it from the car.Helpful (0)

Super easy to install, you can take the engine cover off without taking off the strut bar across to install. Does it’s job and looks good under engine bayHelpful (0)
Since the passenger side gets most of the vacuum, would it be OK to just install the passenger side separator and block the line on the driver's side?
Yes, you can definitely just install the passenger side oil separator on your Mustang to prevent sludge from getting in the engine.
Does the can just hang there or is it actually mounted to something? I don't want something flopping around or banging into something else while I drive.
It does not have mounts except for the two hoses that connect to the engine itself. You shouldn't have any issues with it bouncing around. I've had one on my 2012 GT for years and have yet to have a single issue with it.
I already own this oil separator prior to supercharging my 2013 GT. Does anyone know how to add this to my 624HP Ford Racing Supercharger kit? Are there hoses and connectors that I can replace without cutting the hoses provided with the kit to use this oil separator?
JLT does offer a set of conversion lines to be used with the 624HP when using Roush, VMP and Whipple Superchargers. As the Ford Performance kit does utilize a Whipple 2.3L Blower, this should be compatible with your setup, though we do recommend verifying this with JLT. At this time we do not offer this kit, however JLT's part number is 3011PCK-3020P and this is available directly through JLT.
I just received the JLT 3.0 Oil Separator and my questions is regarding the right side hose/intake side. Is the hose on the intake side (the one with the FoMoCo label) supposed to be or have a flat side. Meaning, the hose is not exactly round where the bend occurs near the label?
There will be a flat section in the hosing due to the bend.
Do you offer this black version with a clear anodized bottom cup? Easier to see and evaluate oil in the clear bottom cup but the black top blends in better in the engine compartment. Don't want to buy both colors and swap.
Unfortunately, the JLT V3.0 Black Oil Separator is not available with a clear bottom half.
It is possible, however, it is not what this was designed for and not recommended. The filter and housing of the oil separator would not be able to handle two banks of cylinders and their blowby.
This isn't going to remove oil, and will not require replacing your oil. This simply reduces Blow-By and Engine Sludge.
The entire unit is secure and physically attached to the vehicle.
We still recommend changing your oil as the manufacturer requires for your vehicle.
This is not suitable for supercharged applications.
We cannot confirm if this product affects the Ford factory warranty. We recommend contacting your local dealership for warranty information.
No, this does not have fitment for a 2018 GT model.
Unfortunately we are unable to determine if this would fit as we have not tested this with any turbo kits at this time.
We would suggest only running one side such as this for the passengers side.
No, there would be clearance issues when using this with a Paxton supercharger.
