Any thoughts on these. I know a lot of the force induction guys use them but I don't like the thought of oil in my air intake either. Who's running them and is it worth it even if I just have a naturally aspirated car?

Hey 03 Cris Mater

Can you share a little more insight on the oil can seperator thing and the quoted price of $20 bucks.

I recently changed my intake manifold due to coolant leak and the bottom of the intake manifold had a layer of oil, thicker than I would have liked to see. I would love to prevent oil in the new one.

Benefits, Cons, actual cost plus install unless its DIY (Which I would prefer). Where to buy this type of device at?

Made my passender side one from a $6 s/s waterbottle from Walmart, garden hose connector, rubber line and a K&N filter I had laying around. Was a fun & easy DIY

Mine cost $140. :shiftyeyes

nah, its nasty oil, i just pour it out into my drain pan.

I just put a brand new intake manifold on my car, so i should hopefully have close to zero oil building up in this one. It was too late to save my old one since i installed it 5 months ago and my car has close to 100k.

The one i have is sealed since it is under vacuum, very nice piece from Morosso.

I just vent my oil vapors out into the atmosphere. Looks much cleaner under the hood that way, and there's no oil in my intake manifold. I was disgusted by the amount of oil in the manifold...

Hey Trick flow, can you send me pictures of the setup, or maybe step to step type deal. I have a general idea, but seeing each step would prevent issues and solidify my idea!

Copy on the phone number PM.

Now in reference to purchasing an extra filter, what size on the open end clamping part? ~2 inch?
