    Review & Install Video

    The JLT V3 Oil Separator is a catch can setup with even more holding capabilities than previously offered through JLT, and it plugs into the intake tract. And it's a great way to protect an engine. It's a simple mod that does some good for all applications. You don't need to have a forced induction set-up to be able to utilize a catch can, but in the case of the turbocharged EcoBoost, it's especially important. A catch can might not be one of the first mods that's on your list or may not even be on your list at all, but it's a very functional piece that has benefits to it and it can do good for even a completely stock motor. I'll talk more about the install later, but I'm gonna call this one a one-out-of-three wrenches in the difficulty meter. So if we go back to the process of an internal combustion engine for a second, I can explain the benefits of an oil catch can like this one here. So the ignition of the air and fuel mixture inside of the combustion chamber is ignited and it forces the piston downwards. There is a small amount of mixture that leaks past the piston rings and into the crankcase. This is known as blow-by. And in that blow-by, there's an oil mist. The blow-by and oil mist will settle in the intake and over time they're gonna form a gunky build-up. Now, technically speaking, there can also sometimes be condensation along with the oil mist and the blow-by. And if you let all this hang out, or worst case this stuff can make into the oil inside of the crankcase. This is not a good thing and it's considered oil contamination and dilution. So you've got your PCV valve to help fight this issue. A PCV valve alone has its own list of weaknesses, and engines have regulations as far as emissions go. So the current set-up as far crankcase ventilation systems means an engine will have detonation or knock when oil is in the combustion chamber. If the knock sensors pick this up, they're gonna pull timing and that's never a good thing. Another thing that happens is carbon build-up on the piston tops and the valves as well. Enter into the scene the oil separating catch can. It's gonna push these gases, the blow-by and the oil misting condensation through a baffle system that's gonna trap the oil and separate it from the other gases. The gases are gonna be allowed to continue through the intake, so they can be burned off and the oil will stay inside the catch can, so it doesn't move on and cause issues for the engine. So this is a single can that mounts on the driver's side of the EcoBoost on the strut tower. Inside, there's a new multi-stage filter that's going to separate the oil from the air and the other gases. The filtering process consists of a fine mesh screen which then passes oil vapors through an aluminum honeycomb filter. The can itself can hold three ounces of fluid, and you'll notice that the better catch cans actually catch pretty much oil. So the larger capacity of this can means that you won't be having to empty it all the time, go a little bit longer between servicing. And the bottom of this can just unscrews when you wanna empty it. It's sealed with o-rings, so it won't leak at all. The kit is gonna include everything that you need for the install here. You have your mounting brackets, so you can mount this. And it's gonna be positioned, so the can is in an easily accessible area. So when you do need to empty it, it isn't gonna be a fight. It's also gonna come with direct-fit silicon hoses that have some pre-installed stock style quick disconnect fittings which make the install easy. It'll be completely plug-and-play. It doesn't get any more straightforward than this. And the can itself is a billed aluminum can that's sealed, like I mentioned earlier, and, of course, powder coated black. As far as price, you're looking at spending between $100 and $200 for this catch can. Now one thing I will say about catch cans in general is to be wary. You wanna make sure that you're getting a good one that will trap as much oil as possible. Some catch cans are just empty container with a few ports, but these kinds are not gonna condense oil vapor and trap as much oil as possible. You wanna make sure that the catch can has an internal baffling collection system like this one does. So the install here is really pretty easy. You're looking at spending an hour tops and it's gonna be a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. You just need some basic hand tools to get this all done, and I'd start by disconnecting your stock line form the PCV valve under the intake manifold on the engine block and behind the throttle body. You can wrap the hoses under the intake for the fitting that's right behind the throttle body, and the rear hose down towards the engine mount. All the hoses will just snap into place after you have them ran and that's all it's gonna take. Mount the separator assembly to the bracket getting your mounting bracket into place. Wrapping things up here, the JLT Oil catch can is a fast and easy way to protect the motor of the boosted S550 from blow-by. You can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Reduces Engine Sludge. This JLT Version 3.0 Air/Oil Separator is designed to collect even the finest crankcase exhaust vapor and drop it into the easily removable bottom while allowing clean air to pass into the intake. When venting crankcase exhaust back through your intake track, large amounts of oil vapor come along as well. This may even dilute your gas and lower its octane level. The JLT Oil Separator combats this by filtering out the oil vapor and turning it back into liquid form.

    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. This JLT Performance Air/Oil Separator is proudly manufactured right here in the USA. JLT CNC-machines their Air/Oil Separator from a solid block of billet aluminum for superior strength. Designed with a rubber o-ring, this Separator will maintain a tight leak-free seal. The base features a knurled texture, so that it can easily be gripped for removal during routine oil changes. JLT then completes their Catch Can in a durable black anodized finish for aggressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Easy Installation. JLT Performance engineered their Separator to be installed in under 10 minutes with just basic hand tools. This kit comes complete and includes two PCV lines with stock-style quick-disconnect fittings that allow for an easy plug-and-play installation. All the necessary parts are included, with no cutting or extra modifications required.

    Application. This JLT Performance Version 3.0 Black Driver Side Air/Oil Separator is designed for use on 2015-2020 EcoBoost models. Installs on the driver side, same side as the PCV valve.

    Technical Note. This JLT Air/Oil Separator is

    not CARB certified, therefore it is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards. It is intended for off-road use only.

            Essential First Mod

            You need this. An oil separator is the first mod you should make to your EcoBoost, and this one is very well-engineered. It’s a simple install, but wow! That fitting on the intake is tight. Installed, though, it looks factory. And, it comes with peace of mind.

            Excellent catch can

            I installed this a few weeks ago. Installation took about 1.5 hours using jack stands. Both lines are difficult to get to if you have big hands and a hot car. It looks great under the hood and I just did my first dump yesterday. I had about 0.5 oz of oil that could have dirtied up my intake valves. Excellent product and I will buy JLT products again in the future.

            Oil Catcher

            The first product I received was defective from the manufacturer. The connector on one end was too small and didn’t fit. My car was stuck inoperable for a couple days while waiting for a new part... not cool. Fortunately the new part that came in was actually quality inspected and works great! Easy instal if you get a good part.

            These should be included from Ford!

            Installation took about 30 minutes, and the available video was very useful. I would never attempt this without a lift due to the placement of the lower hose, but it would be doable I suppose. After only a few hundred miles I already have 1/4" or more oil in the receptacle, and while the 2019 is a dual injector model, that's just excess carbon to cook on / build up over time. This piece is very reasonably priced and I can't imagine anyone opting to skip it from the onset if they care about the long term performance of their car. THANKS JLT!

            Oil Separator

            Great construction, solid, OEM looking part. Goes well with the look of a stock / semi-stock engine compartment. A great inexpensive part that will help keep your engine clean. The hoses seem to be a little longer than they need to be but they're tough and flexible enough to not get in the way. Install tip: put your mustang on a ramp / lift to get to the bottom clamp. It's seemingly impossible to get it on and off from the top. Install tip: when putting the hoses onto the fittings make sure you gently push on the green locking tab to 'snap' the fitting on once in place. If not, your hose will pop off when under acceleration, have a high idle and throw a P2282 code. I hope this helps!!

            Must have

            It's a simple install once you figure out where the PCV line is. It's a very tight squeeze to get too. You need to lift the car to get to the hose on the engine side. If you have a strut tower brace, you will find it a lot easier to install if you remove it. Looks great and does what it's supposed to do.

            JLT Oil Seperator

            This is an awesome product so far. You can tell it has high quality materials, definitely exceeding the quality of OEM. I thought about getting a cheap one off ebay or amazon and I'm glad that I didn't. This one was easy to mount and install. Furthermore, it looks good under the hood. This is a good product no matter which way you look at it, protects your engine and looks good. Install took me maybe an hour at most. Only cause I didn't know what i was doing. Sad part is I even had a lift to do it. The clips on the PVC hose or whatever can be a pain in the behind to get off, I reccomend using an L shaped pick, like a dental pick, and a flathead screwdriver to pull the old clips off. Pry up with the flathead, stick the pick underneath and pull it off. Overall good product and I would reccomend for sure. Worth the extra $$$.

            catch can

            after the install one week later I pulled the cup off just to see and found that it was half full of a mixture of fluids that would of normally ran through the valves and into the exhaust , seeing that I ordered another JLT V3.O catch can and modified the vent tube on the passenger side that runs to the fresh air tube in order to keep out any fluids from the turbo intake side that would then be passing into the intercooler and back to the throttle body . so far so good . not sure if this caused any issues as for air fuel mixture , so I am going to do a data log and forward to BAMA for adjustment if needed .

            High Quality Product

            Product is of outstanding quality. I would recommend bending the hoses every which way to make them more malleable. The ecoboost has an incredible amount of lines in the way and fighting these in the midst of it all is not worth it. If you are not able to lift the car to gain good access to the rear PCV valve, I would recommend removing the intake manifold to gain access from the top. This adds quite a bit of time and steps tot he installation but you dont need a lift! I spent about 2hrs from the time I grabbed my toolbox to the time I put my toolbox up. My ecoboost only has 35,000 miles on it, and the inside of my intake manifold, pcv line and cylinder head intake ports had a thin oily residue all throughout, so the longer you put this mod off, the more oil vapors that accumulate on the inside of your intake, valves, ect. I imagine that the accumulation rate of this catch can mostly depends on the driving amount and stress of each engine. Also the connectors were of the best quality!

            No an easy install and after looking at it no one want to do it and if they do they want a hour and a half of labor. May never go on . I think changing oil every 3 thousand miles is a better option and always using synthetic and top tier premium fuel.
