Just installed another Steeda oil separator on the driver's side. After driving only a few miles I can see an oily film on the inside of the bowl. The passenger side is still crystal clear. That leads me to believe that only one oil separator is needed on these cars....on the driver's side.

Not arguing at all; but I drained a few ounces of oil from my passenger-side catch can yesterday.

Good to know. I'll keep the passenger side separator installed too and monitor it.

On a forced induction set-up you need a catch can on BOTH sides; trust me.
Wait long enough and you'll collect some oil on the passenger side as well, especially if you rev the motor to high rpm.

After 2+ weeks for driving the car I can see several ounces of oil in the driver's side separator but the passenger's side is still bone dry. It is amazing how much oil was getting into my TB before I installed the separator.

That oil would have come from the passenger side valve cover so I'm surprised that the catch can on that side is still dry.

When I first had my shop install the sparator on the passenger side, it was not catching much at all if memory services me right. When I learned that it should be on the driver side with the 197 set-up that's when the oil started collecting in the catch can.

Driver side it is
