    Many just go to Home Depot and get the air compressor filters....
    Here it is...
    Campbell Hausfeld Iron Force air/oil separator flowing at 57cfm
    Plumbing/clamps and the filter is like $25 bucks...

    just installing a air/oil separator won't grab all the mess getting back into the intake.You are gonna need some type of condensor to cool the air/oil mixture so the water and oil fall out of the air and stay in the separator.I used a alumium water jug 1qt cap and ran a 3/8 in steel line from the engine valve cover to the alum can...the pcv was installed in the top of the can and that ran to the air/oil separator...then bk to the intake.this setup grabbed all the oil.Unfortunately the air/oil sep filled up every week and i got sick of dumping it.So i took everyting back off and started using heavier engine oil.

    I'm having the same problem.

    And the conclusion is thicker oil... A catch can or filter is a good idea, if you check it regularly but using thicker oil is the best solution... Great, and I just bought a whole case of 10-30.
