  1. Ok, put 700 miles of hard driving (read dragon tail and blue ridge parkway) No failure. Installing three scopes to start monitering what is happening internally, also installed 4 pressure ssnsors and will start datalogging. Ill keep you all up to date.
  2. The one I made is from stainless, thinking for a final production unit I might consider aluminum.
  3. If it works I will construct a more visually appealing version.
  4. Sorry for my spelling, I am posting from my phone.
  5. I built a new aos system for my boxster. I will begin testing it tomorrow. This is about the 3rd version in as many weeks. I think this one might have it though. I will report back if all goes well. It really looks unique, and was partially inspired by the motirsports version, but taken to the next level with multiple chambers and multiple vapor seperation points. It is also constructed of stainless steel and serviceable. Time to flog the car...
  6. replaced the aos, and the car is much better so far. We will see.
  7. Ok, I can make that in no time. I will attempt, but I think that I will try the new aos first.
  8. The car never overheats, has no oil in the coolant or visa versa, does not consume any coolant, has no check engine lights, and idles relatively smooth. There have been no metal particles in the oil. Never been in an accident, has good compression accross the board. Car really runs awesome.
  9. The oil level is in the middle. I checked my new j-tube that I replaced at the time of the aos swap, and it was full of oil. The aos diaphram is also completely coated in oil. What else would cause the failure? Excess crank case pressure? The car has absolutely no leaks, I would assume excess crankcase pressure woild cause rms failure, and other leaks elsewhere.
  10. like the first post, I have also been an engineer for a long time. I am currently an engineer for eaton. I am looking at a couple different styles of check valves and the combination of baffles internal to the current aos frame. I am also considering a couple inline aos that are available in the after market. I understand the theory behind the aos and have had cars that I had to design kiys for. I have even looked at pressure activated pumps (i used a pump on my mustang to releive crankcase pressure). I have also wondered what the simple addition of a couple screens would do. I have alot of ideas and much of the equipment to bring them to life. Sorry if my post is a little broken up, I generally reply from my phone.
  11. Well, my replacement AOS is faulty!!! its a shame. I am looking at the design and thinking about makeing a replacement from scratch. I think I can pull it off. We will see.
  12. my problem now is I believe that my new AOS was faulty. I am trying to get ahold of the porsche dealer I purchased it from to get a replacement. It is less than a week old.
  13. Cut the old bellows hose and remove your old AOS, then put a screw clamp on the replacement and put it on. Very simple.
