Thanks. It's a work in progress, but I'm almost done for a while. I've got a garage full of suspension parts I'm putting on this weekend, and then I'm giving up the mods for a while. I got the can directly from JLT. They don't have them on their site because the OEM hoses have been on backorder. I like it with the new wheels and no stripes also. I like it even better that I got the factory wheels/tires sold today, so the new ones essentially only cost me $300. A guy with an '08 GT bought them.

I just capped the holed on the intake and intake tube and put breather filters on the cam covers. Way cheaper than the catch cans.

I put a catch filter on my "01 4.6 and am surprised at what it holds , especially water. And that would have gone into the manifold? And the oil?:yelpleased:

NBK- A few questions:
1. How often do you have to clean those filters?
2. Does the oil ever saturate them?
3. Does your car ever throw error codes or check engine lights due to the lack of a a vacuum on the PVC system.
4. Lastly, do you have to do state emissions inspections and if so do you have any problems passing them?

Sorry for all the questions, just curious. I like your setup and think it's effective, just wondering how it works out for you.

1. I clean them every time I do an oil change.
2. They get some oil on them but not like dripping all over.
3. Nope as long as the holes in the intake and intake tube are plugged its just fine.
4. Yes, I do since the cars registered in NJ right now and it passed for emissions just last week.


Im looking for a different filter style tho, I want ones that will match the filter on the CAI I just ordered :p

One day of ~50 miles of spirited driving. I feel better about my purchase already.

I've had my JLT for a few days now but was in no hurry to install it. After seeing what your filter collected after such a short time I decided to finally get off my butt and put mine in as well!

The install was a breeze, just took a 13mm socket to take the 4 nuts off of the factory strut tower brace and a few tugs to remove the plastic engine cover. The JLT's OEM hose fittings snapped on to the factory locations perfectly. Total time to do the entire install was around 10 mins. VERY easy, almost too easy!

I'll post my results with the oil collection after I put some more miles on this separator.

Here's some pics of my install:

My separator had some plastic and metal shavings in it, cleaned it all out then I applied some anti-seize to the threads:
Took the strut tower brace off and plastic engine cover off:

Put the new JLT Oil Separator in:

Then put the engine cover and strut tower brace back on:

The JLT looks like a sweet piece with a very clean install.
