New Ford Performance oil separator.

I don't know if you guys have seen this one yet. It is from Ford Racing. Here is a link to a thread on another site where there is some minimal info and pictures from a few of us who have purchased one.
Lethal Performance NEW PRODUCT: Ford Performance Coyote 5.0L Air-Oil Separator! - 2015+ S550 Mustang Forum (GT, GT350, GT500, I4, V6) - Mustang6G.com

No one knows how well it works yet since it just came out for purchase. My car is still put up for the winter so I won't get to try it out for a couple of months yet.

That is actually an oil separator and not oil.

Usmc1488,

It greatly reduces the oil mist being sent to the intake which otherwise can cause pre-ignition/detonation.

The FRPP oil separator appears to have different sceen sizes in it and this arrangement will let the tiny drops coalesce into larger drops that will drain off the wires into the bottom reservoir. The reservoir has to be manually drained from time to time, just like most other oil separators. The coalescing media looks pretty impressive compared to other separators but we need to see some real-world data to confirm that it works as good as it looks (like it should work).

HTH,

Chris

There is only one screen in this separator but each side of it looks different, almost like the back side of it is painted with something. There is two pictures of the front and back of the screen in the original link I posted.

Do some more research because a lot of people consider them the least effective out of all the top name brands out there.

After using this for a while, please write a summarized review based on your impressions and compare it to the Bob's can.
It's by far more esthetically pleasing to my eyes. I wish it had a drain valve though.

Least effective for Mustangs or just any vehicle? I've seen good reviews for them on lightnings. Either way I'll have to look into it.

I will. The car is still put up for the winter and I store it in a different location than I live at that is a little ways away so it might be awhile before I can give more details.

Any vehicles because the design of the can doesn't change no matter what it's used on.

You have to remember that how much oil a can catches is only part of the equation. In my opinion, the most important aspect is how well does the separator keep oil out of the intake.

A lot of people only focus on how much oil they are catching but don't check the outlet line to see if liquid oil is still passing through the can. No can is 100% effective but the best ones will only show trace signs of oil such as a slight film which is what my Bob's can and my newer style four chamber UPR show.

My original style UPR can and the first version of the four chamber UPR can would get liquid oil in the outlet lines which told me that they were not as effective as my other ones.

While I have never personally used a JLT can, I have read many accounts of liquid oil being found in the outlet line, even using the upgraded latest version of their can.

A lot of people like this can because it uses factory connectors and lines and is very easy to install and remove. Some people have experienced the plastic fittings on the can themselves breaking causing a vacuum leak. This can is also not attached to anything other than the lines which some people consider an issue.

There is a lot of information out there on oil separators and the different brands, it just takes time to find and read it all.

I checked mine a couple of weeks ago after about 300 miles. I think I had about 2ml in the bottom of it. I did find some slight oil film in the exit tube. It was about the same as what I find with my Bob's can. While I had my Ford separator open, I added a Stainless steel Scotch Brite scrub pad inside the bottom section to see if that helps eliminate the oil film. With this addition, It is set up pretty much like the Bob's can. I don't really expect this to make a real difference as no oil separator is 100% effective and I think you will always see some slight signs of oil no matter what you do.

It was a cheap mod to try so if it doesn't help, I'm not out any real money.

I also discovered that this Ford separator does not get scalding hot like the metal ones do. It only gets warm. They say a cooler can is more effective but who really knows.
