Air-Oil Separators

I can see the benefit of installing one on my GT. I received mine today. Just before I opened the box, I noticed the following statement on the box label, "Not legal for sale or use on pollution control veh,"

I live in a county where emission control testing is mandatory every two years in order to renew your plates. Although I won't have to have it tested for some time, I wonder if it's OK to install it.

Re: Air-Oil Separators

You are fine. But if you think it will be a issue then take it off before your inspection,replace with the stock one and when inspection is over put it back on.

I would think that your emissions would be cleaner by not burning oil. Provided you dispose of the captured oil properly, you're making the world safe for fairies and unicorns.

Thanks all, my thinking was it would be better for the environment. Since I plan on changing the oil myself, it would be a matter of draining the separator into the old oil and taking it in for recycle. Maybe I could make a t-shirt stating I'm doing my part to keep the planet safe and clean for fairies & unicorns

Thanks! I work in IT, and it's a little known fact, but everything I do is powered by unicorn farts and fairy/pixie dust. I appreciate your part in helping to keep my expenses down.

Seriously though, it probably just says that since the PCV system is part of the emissions system and some bullshizzle federal mandate says it can't be modified in any way, even if said way has no negative impact on its function. I would take it off before you go in, one less thing for them to hassle you about.

Re: Air-Oil Separators

Installed my JLT oil separator a few minutes ago. I could see residue in the old line, so I feel better already.

Wanted to bring up an old subject. So is it a good idea to run one passenger and driver side? I saw a recent episode of Horsepower TV where the installed one on both sides. Thoughts?

Agreed. You can do both but it's not needed.

If you're running FI, yes. If you're running NA it's a waste of money.
