All engines face a common danger. Large amounts of oil in the form of vapor can gather in your vehicle’s intake tube during the process of venting crankcase pressure back through the intake track. This oil vapor can accumulate in the intake manifold runners and dilute the gas, thus lowering the octane level. This type of problem can be even worsened in supercharged or turbocharged (forced inducted) vehicles with increased crankcase pressures. By using the tried and true JLT Performance (3036P-B) Black Passenger Side 3.0 Oil Separator Kit, your 2011-2014 F-150 or F-150 Raptor can easily eliminate this issue.
Features and Benefits:
- 3oz Capacity
- Solid Billet Construction
- OEM Style Quick Connect PCV fittings
- Easy Plug & Play Installation
- Multi Stage Filter System
Built from billet aluminum and created as a rock solid, sturdy piece, this oil separator works by collecting fine vapors and dropping them into the removable bottom, while still letting clean air through the intake. Draining the spent oil is very easy, as the knurled tank base is removable. No leaks are allowed with the O-ring seal. Oil vapors are trapped by a thin, mesh, stainless steel filter screen and released when they are heavy enough to fall. By passing through the 1/2” thick 1/16” aluminum honeycomb filter, the oil vapors grow larger and fall to the bottom. In the time it takes for the oil to pass through the filter, it becomes too heavy to go through the intake. This oil separator kit will only hold 3 ounces of oil, but worry not, the PVC system doesn’t produce an abundant amount a lot of oil.
Tech Tip: Drain this system every 2000-3000 miles to ensure that you never come close to filling it.
