Justin: The JLT 3.0 Driver Side Oil Separator that we are talking about here today in Satin will be for the 2018 and newer GT owners out there who are looking for the ultimate in protection in regards to capturing the oily vapors produced during combustion from being reintroduced back into your car's intake tract through the PCV system. Now, the driver's side here would be a great compliment to the passenger side option also from JLT which can also be found here on the site as well.Materials in this case, guys, again, feature a billet aluminum three-ounce container complete with the factory style hoses and fittings which will help make the install a bit easier all for just north of 100 bucks. Now, speaking of the install, well, expect a bit more work here compared to that passenger side due to the sound tube so therefore the site will nudge this one up to a soft two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour or so to complete from start to finish but hang out with me towards the end of this video and we'll show you how it's done.So unless you've been living under a rock recently, you probably know about or at least are aware of some of the benefits of running an oil separator on your stock or your modified Mustang. Now the point of these guys here is to capture those oily vapors or blowby that are produced during combustion and otherwise get rerouted back into your intake tract through that PCV system. The problem is over time, these vapors can kinda gum up the intake manifold along with the valves themselves and in some very rare and extreme cases will even contribute to lowering the octane rating of your fuel.Now, the nice thing about the 2018 and newer gen three Coyote is that it does still have that port injector in place to kinda help clean off the backside of that valve but this "coking," as it's called, can still be an issue over time. Now, full disclosure here, guys, the passenger side separator should be your priority as far as installing one of these is concerned because that's where most of the collecting will occur due to the design of the PCV system with these cars. However, there is still a benefit of installing the driver side as well and that, again, will offer you the most protection against this sludge when both are ultimately in place.So now that you know why you might wanna invest into an oil separator, let's talk about how this thing actually works, and again, that oily vapor or junk, whatever, is gonna pass through your car's PCV system into the actual JLT separator. At that point the solid's present in this vapor. Basically, those tiny little particles of oil and whatever else get caught up in that aluminum honeycomb and stainless steel mesh material at the very top of the JLT and then at that point drop down into the canister allowing that clean air to pass through into your intake keeping the PCV system happy and keeping your intake tract from getting all gummed up.Now, JLT claims that checking and emptying these things every few thousand miles would certainly be a good idea and honestly, guys, you're gonna be very surprised at what these little guys do collect over time. In fact, if you don't believe me, feel free to read up on some of the JLT reviews here on the site.Now, construction is going to be extremely solid with the JLT separator and will include that kinda neural billet aluminum canister, three ounces of capacity hence the 3.0 name along with the CNC cut JLT logo right on top of this puppy. Now, this particular option does feature that satin silver finish but if you prefer to keep things a little bit more stealthy under the good you could always opt for the black version here on the site instead. Now, the big pro of the JLT kit, in my opinion, is going to be the inclusion of the factory style hoses here and more importantly those factory style connectors, which in turn will deliver a very factory-like fit.Now because this product is designed to be installed on the driver's side of your gen three Coyote it will ultimately interfere with the factory sound tube that is in place and is responsible for pumping that intake noise into the actual car. So because of that, JLT does include a delete kit for that sound tube including a plug for the firewall along with a cap here to cap off the connection on your intake for proper installation of the JLT, and ultimately, guys, getting rid of that sound tube is something a lot of Mustang owners end up doing just because it cleans up the engine bay substantially.Now, it is something to be aware of and if you're in love with that sound tube, well then, I might steer you just more towards that passenger side instead. But nevertheless, guys, let's show you how this install will go down, how you will have to delete that sound tube and to give you a better idea of the job here is our detailed walkthrough along with that tool breakdown.Man: Tools required for this job, pushpin removal tool, Philips head screwdriver, 11-millimeter wrench, a set of pliers, 15-millimeter socket, 10-millimeter socket, 10-millimeter quarter-inch socket, three-eights socket, three-eights-inch extension, quarter-inch drive, three-eights-inch ratchet, churn panel removal tool, and optional is an impact.All right, so the first up is to remove the four nuts. They are 15 millimeters holding the strut tower brace. There's two on this side and two on the other. All right, so on the passenger side you are gonna have a little plastic clip here holding your harness onto the threads. Just take that off. And then remove your strut tower brace.All right, so we're gonna be using a plastic trim panel removal tool to remove that. Then underneath that is a 10-millimeter nut holding the engine cover on. We're gonna do that on the other side as well. All right, now you're able to remove your engine cover. All right, our next step is to remove our factory sound tube. It runs from your intake all the way to your firewall and you can accomplish this with a set of pliers and a 10 millimeter. All right, now we're gonna be a using a pushpin removal tool to pop this off the strut tower brace.Next, we're gonna be using a 10-millimeter quarter-inch drive to take off the sound tube at the firewall. All right, so this is gonna be a little tough to see but there is a 10-millimeter nut. I'm using a quarter-inch drive with a deep well socket. All right, with that 10-millimeter nut out of the way, we can remove our factory sound tube. You gotta snake it around a couple of these lines. All right, this is gonna plug the hole where the factory sound tube went into the cabin and then this is gonna plug the intake.All right, now remove your factory PCV system. Now, there is a little tab here. You just move it ever so slightly and pull it out. All right, next we're gonna be installing our oil separator bracket with the supplied hardware. We're gonna be using a three-eights on the top and a 10-millimeter on the bottom. I'm just gonna get them started right now.All right, now we are going to be installing our oil separator. Now, I want the long hose in the front and the short hose towards the back for the valve cover and we're gonna be using the supplied Philips hardware.All right, now we are going to attach our lines. All right, now that you have your oil separator on, we are going to reinstall our engine cover and strut tower brace. All right, now we're gonna be installing our strut tower brace. Remember, this one underneath the harness.All right, that's gonna wrap up my install of the JLT 3.0 oil separator and you can get yours right here at americanmuscle.com.
