oil seperators...who needs them?

Been seeing oil seperators for sale. Are these of use to folks without superchargers or turbo chargers? Didn't know if they would prolong the life of a stock engine. Regardless, what is the best brand to get? Could someone also explain what these are for in more detail than a marketing pitch? Thanks in advance.

They separate the oil from the pvc system, and can be used on a stock car or modified with super or tubo charger. It all comes down to what you want to spend on one in the end.

i used it stock and now that i'm s/c. It takes out double the amount now that i've got the blower, but it worked very well still N/A and took out a lot of junk that would have gone back into the engine.

I've got a big UPR catch can BTW

The worst part about the PCV oil vapor on the stock V6 is that it collects on the backside of the throttle body, and the EGR bakes all that gunk on there.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like it's a good modification to buy. An ounce of prevention if you will. I plan on keeping my car for a long time, so I want it to be like new as long as possible. Of course now you folks got me wanting to save up from a super charger Baby steps for now I guess. Thanks again for helping me clear that up.

I just got one of these from Home Depot. Less than $15.



Make sure the filter is sintered bronze and not some plastic or ceramic material. The other stuff can crumble over time.

I replaced the bottom valve with a pipe plug, since it seals only under pressure and not vacuum.

I used 1/4" pipe instead of hose fittings. It's the right size to splice into the stock PCV line. Use a heat gun if necessary.

My '06 GT used to suffer from "smokey startups", about every third time I would start it. I installed the UPR can and problem solved. It's usually pretty full after 4K-5K miles. I am convinced this adds to the carbon around the plugs problem and to breaking plugs.

If you have a setup like Hotshot's, then you're in business. If not, good luck on finding proper hoses to fit the adapters on the manifold and TB. You need those that will not collapse under pressure, i.e. gas/oil hoses and they're stiff as hell.

I think you mean under vacuum.

The drivers side hose needs to be 9/16"id and the line that runs from the passangerside to the CAI is 3/8"id. You only need one on the drivers side and you can fing the hose at PEP Boys. The can I got from AM looks great but the hose that came with it was useless. I ended up buying braided line that would hold up better.

RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

The hose that came with my KB (stiff fuel line I think) would collapse when I blipped the throttle.

I went with braided also.

Mines just spliced into the factory rigid tube. Works great, and I didin't have to buy any extra hose.

You can see it on the far left in this pic, under the strut brace.

My JLT separator reuses the stock tube also. I liked it for the aluminum stock look and the grip on the tank.
