I was thinking about getting a JLT oil separator for the passenger side. which one you guys get? there are 2 on JLT website. one is free floating and the other it said for whipple charged and it mounted, so no chance of it moving around plus cheaper too. my car is N/A. I don't know if the one for whipple charge is any different compare to the other. anyone knows the different please let me know?

thanks

I bought the 3.0 passenger side free floating. The hoses are fairly stiff, so leaving it hanging really isn't that big of a deal, but for good measure, I used a zip tie and secured it to another hose. It's not going anywhere and was a cake install.

My 3.0 has been free floating for 35k miles with no issues.

why you choose the free floating instead of the other from JLT that mounted secure with a bracket?

All reviews I've read have not reported any problems with the free floating option.

Here is a pic of my install with where I placed the zip tie making it quite secure. Also one of how much oil has been captured in just 350 miles. Not much but every bit is what didn’t go into my intake.

so, I contacted JLT and they message me back said, the 3024P or 3030p will work. you don't have to have a whipple supercharger to use the 3030p. I guess I am going to order the 3030p from them cause I like the idea that it is mounted.

Only thing you may want to consider is how easy it is to access to unscrew the bottom portion to drain it periodically. Though mine looks tight space wise you can actually reach underneath the overflow tank with both hands so you can let it drop into the non unscrewing hand. The mounted style runs a hose along side of the can. Hard to tell in photos. Maybe it’s even easier to access but just one more thing to consider before pulling the trigger.
