ive removed qts of oil since i put this on my car, and even more since i replaced my pcv valve.the glass here shows a couple oil changes worth. so around 6-8,000 miles i got it off ebay some time back, but they are still around. you want one like i have with the larger fittings that fit the hose good. heres a writeup i did when i installed it, i think the total cost was around $40. the small round cans on ebay for $10-$15 wont work and are junk

just curious as to what you replaced your pcv valve with, a different aftermarket one or another stock oem one? Never really heard of anyone changing pcv valves on these cars unless there's a problem with the original.

Nice work to make your own separator...Looks good under the hood. Is that an alternator shield? An '05 thing?

I ordered the V6 oil separator from JTL. It came within 4 days, and it fits like a glove! Comes with all the fittings pre-attached to just plug into your PCV valve and plug into your manifold. I ordered the black separator and it looks very high quality. Installs in less than 5 minutes if you're slow. Now to sit back and observe it catch oil! Yes, you pay $119 dollars for the complete set up, but it looks great like Ford installed it themselves, and it's made perfectly for our V6 engines. Great if you can afford it and don't feel like piecing one together.

So, the kit for the V6, it just sits there on the valve cover and is held in place by two rubber hoses? I'm not sure I like that.

I noticed the GT setup from them has a shock tower mount... much better looking, no "on and off" of hoses to dump the captured oil.

That depends on who's it is, the one you're likely referring to is UPR's. JLT's does the same thing for our 4.6's on the other side. Just an in-line solid hose.

While I can not and will not comment on the "norm", I will say my JLT for my own GT has been worthless. I'm guessing a defective filter. Only catches a slight amount of blow-by. Check at 50 miles and what you see in the pic is what is there, check after 3000, same amount. Just seems to get the first bit, then the rest makes it past. Of course it's been too long to get it refunded or exchanged via AmericanMuscle, so I was referred to speak with JLT. Hoping that will go smoother once I can get around to it. Likely just sell it assuming I can get it exchanged, as I think the way to go is homemade, as it's just as effective, more-so in this case, and costs 4 to 6 times less. Just not quite as pretty.

Note oil covering this end that fits to TB side, more to be had when you look in the tube and around the seal, and of course my TB was coated again, I've had to clean it a few times with this non-"catch-can":


All that it ever catches:


Easy to replicate effective home-brew, made for a 4.6 walk-thru, but really for 4.0, just change sides, that's the only diff:
