Hmm, That might be the right site. Hope not, because the "airsep" doesn't
look even close. I don't know why it's integrated with a cone filter,
but that obviously don't work on our cars.
We need a small version of their airsep, and one that doesn't required
integration into the main intake...
Ahhh, here we go. This is more what I was looking for:
I'll have to give them a call and see if this little guy could be used in
a sealed system. It's also got a return -line- instead of a container,
that might be a little tricky to plumb. Any ideas how best to return the
oil to the crankcase? Maybe a cut in the lower crankcase breather hose
right near the block, insert a small section of pipe with a nipple on top?
