I run the husky one on a 3/8" line and it works rather well in my application. I was having al sorts of oil build up in the elbow to the CAI filter because of the blower drawing on it. Slipped in the Husky seperator and it's been clean for over a year now.

Kenne Bell includes a husky seperator as part of their blower kits..
