    We installed the new oil separator kit from JLT this weekend. The JLT kit is custom-fit for the HC and takes only minutes to install.
    These images show the assembled kit as received, the mounting bracket, hardware and instructions, and also another separator in the alternative clear-anodized finish:

    Our subject vehicle, Kristi's Hellcat:

    Despite the fact that Dodge has taken extra steps to reduce oil drawn into the intake tract, there is significant oil visible in this vent line. This car had 217 miles on it at the time of this photo:

    The JLT kit installs in line between the valve cover vent and the inlet on the passenger side of the engine. OEM-style hose connections are used to ensure a leak-free seal. The steel bracket mounts to an existing attachment point on the engine using the provided hardware:

    The finished install looks factory. There are no modifications necessary as part of this upgrade, and the installation is completely reversible.

    While all JLT parts are fully tested prior to being offered to the public, we'll report back here in a couple hundred miles to show how much oil this unit collects. We use these separators on every car we own and highly recommend them.

    Good products. 1.5 Oz capacity is not much. NHRA specs 1 pint minimum (if that's important to you...)

    TallCool1...You may be confusing the oil separator with a coolant overflow. I don't think the NHRA has a spec'd capacity for the oil separator.

    Dragon...On late model cars, there are vent tubes that connect the crankcase and the engine inlet tract, intended to promote crankcase ventilation and to help keep oil temps down. Invariably, oil vapors contained in the air moving through these vent lines travel back into the engine, contaminating the throttle body, supercharger, intercooler, and intake manifold. Even worse, engine oil in the combustion chambers contributes to abnormal combustion, which is definitely something to avoid in a supercharged application. The JLT separator catches the oil while allowing the air to pass, so no functionality is compromised - the engine just breathes cleaner air.
    This is not a new concept - oil separators have been proven over the years in Mustangs, Camaros, CTS-V's, and N/A Challengers. There are many companies that offer oil separators, but I think the JLT unit is the best one.

    As a manufacturer, we only sell the parts we manufacture. These oil separator kits are engineered, assembled, and sold by JLT Performance. To purchase one of these oil separator kits, you should contact JLT Performance directly: JLT PERFORMANCE Home of the JLT TRUE COLD AIR KIT
    I know what goes into the manufacturing of these kits, and their price of $119 is pretty good.

    Isn't there a breather system on the drivers side also? On 5.7 Hemi there is only one PVC system, however, it was my understand that Hellcats had two (2); one on each side. If that is the case, why is only one collection system being offered?

    Most vehicles have crankcase vent lines from both the passenger and driver side into the engine. Part of JLT's development process includes choosing the side that captures the most oil, and choosing the side where it is most practical to mount the assembly.
    If JLT determines that a second separator for the driver's side is worthwhile, I suspect they will pursue it.

    It looks good, and high quality-but still feels...pricey-no offense.

    I am not sure I understand what you are saying, the 5.7 liter has one (1) pcv valve on the passenger side, so one (1) catch can is installed before it vents back into the intake, if the 6.2 liter Hellcat motor has two (2) pcv valves then two (2) catch cans or one (1) with both vent lines plumbed to it would be needed, otherwise, you are only catching half the oil that is making its way into the intake. By offering only one side, it appears to only solve half the problem. Just my 2 cents
