    I own a 2010 Mustang GT 4.6. I have been doing some reading about oil seperators and have made up my mind to get one as the benefits seem to merit the price. I read that it is recommend to install an oil separator on the passenger side on the 5.0 GT due to the fact that the passanger side being much more problematic. I was wondering if thats the same thing for the 4.6 GT. Which side should i go for, or is it best to install on both sides?

    You could install one on both sides, but it's a "diminishing returns" thing. I have one on my 3V though and it catches quite a bit of oil.

    Oil separators are really not needed for N/A applications. Save your money for something that will actually benefit your car.

    Maybe not on your car. My 3V NA (like the OP's car) fills my oil separator about half way between oil changes. I don't want that stuff in my intake manifold.
