I saw this on another site and was wondering if someone could confirm if this was installed correctly on the LLT since it is the first time I have seen one installed on a V6. I am considering doing this to my 2010 in the future to go along with my catch can.

Thanks for the help.

I know Freddie from C5 and also he's in the same club that I'm in. I've seen it installed in his Camaro and he's not had any reported problems. I would PM on C5 and ask him about it. Tell him Baldman recommended you talk to him.

$99 plus $10 &H for the RX version....1/2 price GM's and nicer looking. Installs the same way and yes, they work great. Stop the clean side ingestion that occurs at WOT when there is no measureable vacuum and oil mist enters upstream of the throttle body.

But remember, clean side ingestion is only 1-3% of the oil ingestion via the intake air charge.....the dirty side is where nearly all comes from and you need to stop that before looking further.

Is this a better solution than the breather? If so, how is it better?

Yes and no....the breather completely eliminates the clean side ingestion path by giving the crankcase a separate filtered air source with eliminating the OEM cleanside tube, and has an integrated flow controlling checkvalve so the ECU/PCM can adapt and keep the fuel trims within the preset parameters needed.

The 1LE style keeps this path intact so all air entering the intake air charge is 100% metered allowing more accurate fuel trims, but it also may allow a small amount of oil mist to enter upstream of the throttle body....but the amount would be so minor the benefit of more accurate fuel trims IMHO outweighs the standard RX breather, so the 1LE style is really the ideal solution.

Revised RX Billet unit. Easily take apart to clean if desired, and far more effective that the plastic GM unit at 1/2 the price. $99

Anyone wants to install one of these PM me for a one time price deal......there is no better cleanside solution to date. 1/2 the cost of the plastic GM version and billet with removable top to be able to inspect and clean if desired, super easy install and unlike the VR open breather messing w/fuel trims, this retains 100% metered air and NO pressure issues.

I received one of these separator's from Tracy for testing. I was able to install it the day before I went into storage. I like the idea of what it will do over the breather. Looks nice too. I will have further comments on it in the spring when I get a chance to put some miles on it.
