Hi all, new to the forum. Just purchased 2013 Boss 302 in School Bus Yellow last month. I've had Mustangs in the past & none compare to this. Had the car out a few times until the blast of cold & snow arrived.

Medicman:

Welcome to the Boss 302 Forum. Did your 2013 Boss come with any mods? If it's a low mileage unit you should install an oil catch can on the vacuum side of the IM.

Good luck & Drive well,

Mine almost filled up a 3oz JLT catch can in just 1500-2000 miles! I would definitely purchase one ASAP.

A good idea and only needed on passenger side as the driver side is drawing fresh intake air into the motor only. Pass. side is a vaccum and pulls out any oil contaminants to be burned. Unfortunately some oil follows through also. Now I've seen catch cans on both sides?

But you have to ask yourself would Ford have a warranty and extension if that amount of oil is harmful without the can? High compression engines have a certain amount of oil burning, leak by through the piston rings alone. Due to the high RPM, running long hrs. and extra hot the rings have a loose tolerance allowing for heat expansion to start with. Otherwise sieze ups, galling would be pretty standard.

On a cold startup your burning some oil regardless until the rings seal due to the viscosity, raw gas will also migrate to the crankcase untill rings are seated. Not enough either way really along with the initial amount of unburnt fuel in exhaust used for startup enrichment. I also have the catch can, one of those things that can't hurt if you have the money to spend.

Ever notice an oil change that has a gas smell to it or a vehicle actually burning oil, blue smoke exiting exhaust pipes.... Rings. Oil burn though could be valve seals and other things, just discussing catch cans now. A bad turbo charger bearing seal, unbelievable. Am I right or not so, you decide, I don't care. You'll always have somebody say "that's BS" lmao.

Just ordered oil separator/ catch can from CJ Pony. Even local Ford mechanic I spoke with encouraged me to pick one up. Thanks again for info.

I really like my JLT is it? Have to say they do catch oil regardless of my prior. Low profile, plug 'n play and made with Ford labeled hoses. Several other styles in use but can't confirm if they're any better.

JLT works great but is a closed system and requires maintenance. Nothing wrong with that. 

 

Peterson is Mo Betta...but Mo Work putting together and mounting.
