Mustang Black JLT 3.0 Oil Separator
JLT Performance’s newest 3.0 oil separator is redesigned to keep more oil out of your intake on your 2015-17 Mustang Ecoboost. During the process of venting crankcase pressure, large amounts of oil in the form of vapors can coat the inside of your intake manifold and even dilute your air fuel ratio, lowering its octane level.
To combat this, JLT has developed the new 3.0 oil separator to better trap these oil vapors. Milled from solid billet aluminum this is a rock solid piece. It has a knurled tank base for easy removal to drain the spent oil and an O ring seal to prevent any leaks. JLT took this unit a step further and added a Ford Motorcraft metal mesh PCV Pre Filter element. This element collects the last bit of oil droplets and drains back into the tank when the engine is shut down. JLT uses this exact filter in their hugely successful JLT Pre Filters for the 4.6 DOHC engines. The tank holds 3 oz of fluid, while that may not sound like a lot, you shouldn’t see that much oil in your PCV system. Drain it every oil change and you will never come close to filling it.
-This part number is designed to be mounted on the driver's side of the engine compartment.
I had purchased this JLT oil separator and on my initial attempt I couldn't get the bottom PCV connection off going at it with the front of the car on ramps. I waited a few days to try it again because I didn't want to break the piece attached to the block. The next attempt I was able to get it; the push button on top of fitting actually doesn't require much force, the trick is pulling the quick connect off because the stock PCV hose is fairly rigid. Also, the fitting going to the block will articulate so don't worry if it rotates. Behind the throttle body; a liitle push (on white button) and prying on the end of the fitting will get the stock piece off. Small hands are helpfull going on with the new JLT fitting up top; I mistakenly tried to route the hose up top under the intake instead of under the throttle body (like the instructions read) and that doesn't work. I have a Ford Racing strut tower brace I added to my ecoboost which made installing the catch can a little more tedious but not so that it warranted removing the strut tower. When I had a 5.0 GT, I installed the JLT oil seperator which was the most basic install. This is not so straight forward of an install on the Ecoboost but these cars apparently need this; maybe even more than NA cars not to mention concerns of valve fouling being direct injection.
