Some of our friends (Andy and Mark) have reported good success with the AntiSplat system, so we’ve decided to take the plunge. We’ve always had a haze of oil on our cowling as our existing separator dumps at the cowling join line. I don’t know if the actual separator is better or if it’s mostly a function of the siphon valve connected to the exhaust, but both have reported oil-free bellies since installing these.

The unit comes with a mount that I attached high on the firewall with a large hose to the breather (it came with a replacement for the hose connector to the engine), the suction to the exhaust, and a drain back to the engine. I had a devil of a time getting the plug out of the accessory drain to connect the oil return to… if it weren’t for that, this would’ve been an hour or so job.

Yes, I know it’s upside down in this picture
