Up for sale, didn't quite work out with all my other mods. Used about 2 weeks.
<OEM connections>
Seemed to work pretty good for what it is designed to do. I'll take a bennie for it.
Price is firm.
Located in NE TX.
PM for payment/shipping info.

I'm using the same JLT so I'm curious why it's not working out, can you explain in more detail? The JLT is working great for me.

🚬 Had a smoker after doing the downpipe install.
Went to the T+ UPR setup & no more issue.
Yes, it is a well made setup.
The learning curve continues.

I was planning on buying the Ford performance catch can for incognito stuffs, but I would take this one off your hands for a good deal.

Would you do $80 shipped for a fellow frugal Texan 😁?

Had a smoker? Maybe it's too early for me and my brain isn't on full power yet, but I don't understand how the JLT caused issues after a downpipe install? I also have a catted downpipe and didn't experience any issues. Anyway, glad it worked out for you.

One thing I noticed about the JLT is that it can fill up in 1k miles under certain conditions so it should be checked and emptied often. After installing the CFM valve cover breather the amount of blow-by reduced by more than half so I don't need to empty the JLT as often as pre-valve cover breather. I also noticed that a tune doubles the amount of blow-by vs. OEM tune in my configuration.

Yes 🚬 Had to give it the nicoderm treatment via the Radium plate/UPR catch-can method.
Had to install the Radium Pcv plate and gut the pcv valve, then with the UPR catch can and its check valve assembly- no more smoking. This was a issue at idle on occasion, and it was noticeable. Evidently this can be a problem on some of our vehicles when getting into mods. It's not the JLT can that caused the concern.
'One thing leads to another'.
Exactly why is something that a resident expert here on the forum would have to explain.
In a nutshell- boost gets past the connector right after the TB and then past the PCV which causes the smoke out the tailpipe.
It took some homework to resolve the concern and fortunately there was Tune+ Inc. that had the answer. Adam B. was helpful and put up with my dumb questions to get me sorted out.

Okay -- sounds like they had a stronger offer. If that falls through, I'll help you out and take it off your hands :). If not, nbd :) get the best deal you can, for sure.

Thanks for thinking of me, but I'm leaning towards the Ford Performance one. I have a suspicion it will be easier to run incognito at the dealership service jobs.

If you were really just looking to get rid of it, I would buy it for 80 bucks shipped. I'm in Austin TX, so shipping should be pretty light.

hey jimbo,
i was just reading your post.so your car was smoking because it was burning oil when you installed your downpipe from too much crankcase pressure?? Can you explain like I'm a complete noob(or like I'm a 4 year old,lol)

I only noticed the concern at C/T idle.
There is a reasonably good explanation of the issue on the Tune+ website associated with the fix that's probably better then I can explain.
Seems to occur when getting into mods, such as the aftermarket downpipe.
How the factory keeps it from happening with the OEM setup is something a well versed tech would have to explain.
While I certianly understand forced induction theory, I'm still learning plenty about the finer points of it.
