Unlike traditional oil separators, this Ford Performance separator incorporates a drain back hose that connects to the valve cover which essentially makes this oil separator maintenance-free.


Applications:

  • Fits 2020 GT500 w/o Track Package
  • Will also work with 2011-17 5.0L and 2015-19 5.2L engines with the addition of M-6067-M52S aluminum cam covers. May require modifications of the provided hoses for fitment on 2011-2019 Mustang and Shelby GT350 engines.

Ford Performance GT500 Oil Separator
Combat excess oil vapor from entering your engine with Ford Performance's 2020 Shelby GT500 oil separator! This is the same oil separator included with the 2020 GT500 Track Package edition. Ford Performance catch cans are designed with a unique filter media to separate the oil vapor from the air in the PCV system. Once this process is complete, the captured oil is recycled back into the oil pan through the RH coil cover. This makes the oil separator maintenance-free and does not require the oil to be emptied from the catch can!

Ford Quality & Fitment
Developed and engineered by Ford Performance means that the fit and finish is second to none. Thousands of miles of testing went into the best fitting OEM oil separator on the market for the 5.2L supercharged 2020 GT500. The precision fitment is designed to be bolted directly to the 2020 GT500 passenger side valve cover making the fitment much cleaner than the universal catch cans on the market!

Cleaner Intake & More Power
Over the years, emissions have become tighter making engines cleaner but for the Mustang enthusiast, these emission changes have created problems like excess oil from the crankcase to enter the intake manifold via the PCV system. This excess oil can cause intercoolers to become clogged with oil vapor reducing the effectiveness of the supercharger cooling system. Excess oil in the air charge also can cause the fuel octane level to be reduced causing the engine to make less power and have chances of detonation under boost. The Ford Performance oil separator is your best line of defense to prevent this excess oil from causing these negative effects on your 2020 GT500!

Fitment Notes
Will work with 2011-2017 5.0L and 2015-2019 5.2L engines with the addition of M-6067-M52S aluminum cam covers. May require modifications of the provided hoses for fitment on 2011-2019 Mustang and Shelby GT350 engines.

Applications
-Fits 2020 GT500 without Track Package
