      I just ordered one...

      I pulled a sample from the oil the Steelership had in it.
      I was not pleased with the results.

      I upgraded the lube and ordered the separator

      I will pull another sample in 4-5000 miles

      Here is the result from my sample

      Wow! I see the fuel/oil number...Hopefully the oil trapped in the JLT is the fuel/oil material that spiked that SOAP analysis you did. When I used to fly piston aircraft, oil analysis checks were the norm. Rare to see it performed with cars/trucks. Thanks for posting!

      Being in the oil biz I do them all the time. Big trucks use it to determine Oil change interval

      I also do them for my race teams.

      I'm guessing the oil I drained out is non synthetic. I may wait to install the jlt after I have a few thosand miles on the AMSOIL.

      Understandable.

      Good Luck!

      EZ Install

      While you are poking your head under the hood, you might as well perform the blow off valve treatment. Since you cant get a good exhaust note out of this steed, you might as well make some blow off valve swoosh sounds.

      Another ez task to perform with a cold engine bay.

      I believe all the models for the U.S. market come from the factory with the synthetic blend oil.

      It had 19,000 miles on it. So I hope it had a oil change or 2. But none the less that oil that was in there did not hold up. Not sure what the dealer uses to service their cars.

      Ok installed mine today. was a piece of cake

      Not sure if the lines were suppose to come with, but being in the AMSOIL biz, I had some laying around from a Bypass Filter set up.

      As far as the plastic cover rubbing, I just trimmed the end a little to allow it to clear the hose.

      Yes the lines SHOULD have come with yours! They are lucky you are the one to receive missing parts. Great job!

      What's the magic about this catch can to make it worth 2x other offerings? The mounting bracket isn't even "custom," you need to drill your own holes etc.

      The catch can is actually a decorative shot glass...After 10,000 miles you can enjoy a nice shot of 5W-30. Well worth it!

      Mine has been on less than 2000 miles
      here is a bad photo of what came out of it.
      [​IMG]

      it wasn't pure oil, looked like some water or fuel mixed in it.

      I would say the catch can works...

      I cleaned it 15 days ago
      about 10 ml of oil

      The 2nd report was better... But I'm thinking it was more the better oil than the catch can.

      I am due to pull another sample in about 500 miles.

      Still trying to get a handle on this.

      PCV system purpose.

      The idea was to recover crankcase oil vapor and sending it through air intake to be consumed in normal engine combustion. It also helps to regulate crankcase pressure which, if you are driving high miles vehicle, can compromise aged gaskets and seals and leave you wondering where all the engine oil is going even if there's no blue exhaust and the spark plugs are not sooted.

      So hear is my question - if the engines PCV system is being serviced at the appropriate intervals, how does this oil separator unit improve on factory design?

      The main reason for these recovery systems is to keep the vapors out of the intake track on direct injection motors. These vapors will stick to the valves which in DI motors have no fuel to wash the valves which results in increased carbon biuld up on the valves. Other companys like BMW have placed injectors that spray into the plenum to reduce the carbon build up. There are alot of threads related to this and just as many opinions. BTW this is just what I have researched and not personal opinion. As we know there is a lot of snake oil on the internet.

      I was told the oil vapors provided lubrication/ anti-corrosion throughout the intake system; also as the rings seat through break-in, the blow-by decreases.

      Thats a good explanation, I understand it better now.

      So he says best solution is updated or improved software for the ECM.....as opposed to a oil catch can.

      I also wonder why when Ford does the big media EcoBoost teardown after 200,000 miles we arent seeing this.

      Just completed the JLT oil separator install. There were a few fitment issues for the 2016 3.5 ecoboost install on my sport. I contacted JLT and provided them with the information to address the 16.
