Video: Ford SVT Lightning JLT Oil Separator Installation (99-04 Passenger Side)
Published on 2014-08-11
Installing a JLT Oil Separator will help keep un-wanted oil vapor from entering your intake system. This oil vapor is extremely detrimental to forced induction vehicles such as the Ford SVT Lightning! This oil vapor can and will collect in the intercooler. Over time this vapor begins to clog the air passages and reduce the cooling abilities of your intercooler.
This makes a quality oil separator a must when on your F-150 Lightning! The JLT Oil Separator is available in a black or silver anodized version that will not only perform well but it will also look good under your hood. Each Lightning oil separator includes all needed hoses & hardware to finish off the installation in no time.

What's up everyone? It's Landan with LatemodelRestoration.com. And today, I'm going to show you how to prevent oil vapor from entering your intake, clogging your inner cooler, and robbing your Lightning of precious horsepower. Because of JLT's oil separator kits, keeping that unwanted oil vapor out of your intake system is extremely easy.
These kits come in a black or clear anodized finish version, include all needed hardware, and installation instructions. Now, let's go ahead and jump over here to my 2000 SVT Lightning. And let me show you how easy this install is.
Start by removing the factory vacuum line in the PCV and supercharger plug-in. Or if you have a makeshift separator like myself, remove it the same way. Next, install the included short vacuum hose on the side with the J.
Attach the included longer hose to the side with the T. You will reuse the plastic coupler. Attach this to the other end of the short vacuum hose. Next, you will attach the bracket to the top of the oil separator with the tow fine thread screws. Place the bracket against the plastic wire loom cover and mark the holes with the center punch or marker.
Drill the holes with a 9/32 drill bit. Be careful not to poke any wires behind the plastic wire loom cover. Next, install the oil separator with the two coarse thread screws. Connect the short hose to the PCV which is directly above your valve cover and the long hose to the supercharger plug-in.
And there you have it. Installation took me just under 15 minutes. For more Lightning how-tos, subscribe to our YouTube channel and head over to latemodelrestoration.com to check our great selection of restorations and performance mods for your SVT lightning.
