    I don't think it would. It still maintains a closed-crankcase system. The only thing this does is separate the oil from the air, so the air goes back into your intake, but the sludge-producing oil goes into the catch can. Then you drain it and dispose of it.

    I have then on both sides. I put them on with 7 miles on the car. Got the car in Dec 2017(low number 2018). I live in snow country so I had time to play before driving. The Passenger side, if you want to cheep out, is the most important side. I collect about half a "can" of oil every 2-3K miles of "normal" driving, not track. It is good oil so I just dump it back into the engine. The drivers side collects maybe less than 1/2" in the same distance. They are both around $125 or so. Cheep insurance. The oil blow-by, without the separators, goes back into the engine behind the Throttle body onto the top of the valves. Gums up the valve train. (simple explanation) I agree with the rest of the people. They should be standard equipment along with a few other things. But they are not so you have to buy them. I got the JLT separators from LMR. I just looked. $139 each. PS. I now have 10600 miles on it. Love it. No problems. Been down south and out west with it. It has been a great addition to my stable.

    As far as I know oil separators (any) are not CARB approved. I don't think they will be until someone makes one that is self draining.

    I think the 2020 GT500 has a drain hose attached? Right back into the crankcase?

    Had to do a bit of improvising attaching the unit to the plastic valve cover.
    A zip tie & sheet metal screw did the trick.
    Piece of cake.

    I put the UPR dirty and clean side separators on my 2019 GT350R. I am extremely impressed with the part quality and fir and finish. Looks extremely professional. Took maybe 7 mins to install.
