Nice seat of the pants power....can't wait to go to the track now. :thumbsup:

Also made my own oil seperator. Didn't put it where I wanted to originally as I didn't have enough tubing to reach, but you get the general idea.

Looks good!

I think I'm going to do the oil separator thing too...

When street driving, after a hard pull(after being naughty :naughty: )... in an attempt to keep my wheels free of brake dust a little longer... I let it coast down in one of the lower gears(usually the one I was just in)...

This is the time when manifold vacuum is the highest, and when most of the oil vapor gets sucked into the intake tract.

So for me(until I get louder exhaust :rolleyes: ).... this mod makes a lot of sense.

BTW Mike.. if you have not already done it , you will want to get a little vacuum plug for that top nipple on the 90 degree adapter on your PCV valve.

That is a vacuum leak, if left unplugged.(unmetered air = lean = bad)... $.49 easy fix.

That's the PCV valve I got at AutoZone. I don't like it one bit b/c it has two "adapters" you can use, but it did come with it's own plug so I've got that under control.

Guys, let me know if you want me to make you one of the oil seperators, it's not a hard job....just gotta figure out how to mount mine better and out of the way. :thumbsup:

Here's where I'd LIKE to install it:

I just got another idea....what about putting ANOTHER seperator on the other side from the valve cover to the intake tube??? Think that'd work as well??? :dunno:

YES!!
It is a good idea on boosted cars, or older cars with some miles on them.
Quite a few High boost Terminator guys are running two already!
Most have commented on how surprised the were, at the amount of oil being caught.......... that used to be spewed onto the intercooler, and then into the cylinders!!!

When oil gets into the intake air stream, it lowers the effective octane rating of whatever gas you are running(makes detonation events more likely)

So as you can see there are multiple benefits to this "low buck/home grown" mod.

I just bought the kit so I could mount it on the firewall as you show Mike. I am interested in another one that I could just put inline to the intake. I think I have seen that for some reason most of the oil comes out the drivers side, even for guys with 2 units installed.
Mine fills up pretty quick. I have heard of guys piping in an oil return so you do not have to empty the thing. Any good ideas how to do this without a big hassle?

I was looking into the same thing Henry. I haven't installed mine yet trying to figure out the best way to do it. I don't wanna forget to empty em and have them filled up.

I'll have to look at the plumbing, but I don't think it should be all that hard. :thumbsup:
