    Ok I've. been hearing a lot about catch cans on the Gen 2 , I am totally ignorant when it comes to these so can someone explain this? do the Gen 2's actually have them? pictures of one? if so where are they located? if not where do they mount? what is their purpose? (I'm guessing it has to do with the Turbos and oil ). Any replies would be appreciated

    I understand the motor is both DI and PI but I'm not entirely sold that the PI runs all the time and cleaning the valves. So, I went ahead and I bought the JLT can. It should be here this week. IMHO, the catch can is a nominal prevention investment. That and I have a boosted FoMoCo motor in my other vehicle which is just DI. The OCC in that car catches all kinds of yeck.

    The other benefit is that it helps stop most of the oil buildup inside the intercooler.

    Installed the JLT OCC today. Very easy. Had to trim the engine cover which was easy because it's made of foam. Time will tell if it was worth it.

    Heard good things about these. Next on my list. What did you use to trim the engine cover?

    I installed my JLT CATCH CAN last week in about 30 minutes. I just adjusted hose routing so I did not have to trim engine cover on my 2017 raptor.

    did you get the JLT updated version that mounts near the battery? I installed this new version on mine a couple weeks ago. Piece of cake

    3000 miles. Highway and hammer down driving. Smelled of fuel, not surprising. Had some white gelatinous gunk on the bottom...Maybe 1/2 cup total.

    Does anyone know if the JLT Oil Separator will void the engine warranty?

    I don't believe there is any clear documentation that would indicate the catch can would in any way be a warranty issue.
