Yes, You Should Get An Oil Catch Can

There are some things that don't add horsepower, may not be sexy but I tell you this; if you value your engine, you need an oil catch can. I only wish I knew about this from day one.

Normally, on factory setups, your PCV exhausts oil vapor which is directed to the intake manifold for re-burning and is an easy, non-maintenance way of getting rid of this. Unfortunately you may as well be pumping foul sludge into your intake and leaving carbon deposits on the back of your valves. You can look all this up and I don't have to give you the science to convince you. I just have to show you first hand what 500 miles collected and just think about that going BACK in your engine.

I went with the Mishimoto Baffled mid-sizei catch can after much research. Don't waste your time on EBAY specials...they still allow stuff through. What makes Mishimoto different is the filtration that wont allow the liquid or vapor to get by and defeat what you are trying to accomplish.

Here is what I bought

2 brass hose fittings (the vatch can comes with two but they are plastic)

Now to make sure I had good connections, I used the factory PCV and Manifold end connectors. I simply took it off and cut the plastic hose off it and used the hose I bought cut to size.

This was an easy install...toughest part is determining the best spot to mount with the easiest access to unscrew the can when I want to empty and keep the hoses clear. I used the back of my cold air breather box as a perfect mount. See pictures below and while I do show the sludge ...I wish you could smell it too. It smells like gas and oil mixed

I have the JLT catch can on my 08' Bullitt. At 65K miles I swapped out the stock intake manifold for a Ford Racing one. There were no traces of oil inside the intake manifold at all. The back of the intake valves were clean.

Thanks for that, just ordered one from Brenspeed, they said they collaborated with JLT on it.

Very true. I have purchased all of the performance parts for the Bullitt from Brenspeed. The cams, intake, throttle body, cold air intake, tune ect. It all works very well together.

Do you have headers on your Bullitt?
I'm looking, any recommendations?
I'm currently stock except for axle back Roush mufflers from 2008.

Yes, they are the JBA shorty style. Still have the stock cat pipe, but with a X-pipe in place of the factory H. Then Moroso mufflers at the rear.
