And the ratio of the oil mass to the fuel mass in the intake charge will determine how much it lowers the octane by.
Derp.

Ironically I had my intercooler off this weekend, not near enough oil to make me concerned. But luckily the internetz tell me I'm reducing my efficiency of my motor, though my data logs do not reflect this in anyway.

I have had a GS since they started with first group buy. No issues, no milky material. I think it reduced the oil/sludge I would see in the intercooler elbows and TB hose, but it's tough to tell. Only a DD so no extreme driving, other than some sprited runs.

Unless you race I think the AOS or catch can really are not best mod and money could be better spent.

No one on the planet has any proof that any solution will increase intercooler efficiency and/or impact real or apparent octane. It is all theory with no practical proof. Once again...the lack of these has blown up zero motors ever. You can buy one if you like if that makes you sleep good at night. But, do so knowing that there is zero proof that they actually do anything beneficial.


<-----------has one installed on his car and STILL does not recommend them

I'd consider it if it were in the 20% off and ready to be shipped immediately...My build will hopefully be done about the time the groupbuy is done and I'm planning on getting one anyways, just from Boston Motorsports.

The separators will be boxed and ready to ship the last day of the GB, and every year we reach the 20% off mark

Happy Holidays!
