Is it to late for an oil separator

My 2012 GT has 30,000 miles on it. Does it make any sense to put a passenger side oil separator on at this point?

Well an oil separator on a n/a car wont do much to begin with. However if you like to be cautious its always better late than never. Normally oil separators are just for f/a cars especially superchargers to prevent oil from getting on the screws depending on what kind of supercharger.

Was reading some past posts on this subject and it seems most separator users are NA and happy they did it. Just not sure if its too late!

No, it's never too late. Generally, blow by will increase with mileage, so the need for a catch can increases with mileage; however, on these newer engines, catch cans aren't really necessary on an N/A setup, but I wouldn't run FI without one. I guess it's better safe than sorry though.

I have 36k on my 2011 and just installed the JLT last week. I checked it the other day and there was oil in there.

I really doubt you could go wrong with a JLT catch can, but I'd see if anybody has tried Bob's catch can (which looks awesome with the carbon fiber colors). It seems like it'd be exceptional at removing blow by from the PCV system.
