As other people have already pointed out, moving it after the impeller doesn’t change anything really. You’re just increasing the back pressure.

I did it in a previous dust collector because it helped me keep the footprint smaller, but the big risk is that your impeller is unprotected. Accidentally sucked one jar of Shellawax one day while cleaning, and the next day I was converting it so the separator came before the impeller.
