Our AOS is designed to install it and then enjoy the benefits without any need for inspections or maintenance of any kind.

If you would like to check periodically to give yourself peace of mind, then pulling off the hose from the top port in each chamber where it meets your engine and checking for oil build up is the best way.

So today the temperature drops to about 8F and after a 20 minutes drive and watching oil temp reaches 180F, I stopped the car, open the hood and just wanted to feel how warm or cool the V3 AOS is.

Well the AOS is not warm but it is not chill either, it feels to my bare hand to be about 60F. A litter cooler than I expected but I guess it is OK.

Thanks for sharing this info and it's very good to hear!

Also keep in mind that our Dual chamber design has constant air flow through it so there is no condensation buildup inside of the system.

I'm still waiting on the V3 installation instructions for the 2008-2014 WRX. Will these be released any time soon?

Tried installing on my Ď13 WRX and Iím running into fitment issues before I even get to running hoses. Has anyone successfully gotten this installed that can shed some light on the process that doesnít refer to the instructions from Crawford?

Crawford are you going to ever release the install instructions you promised for the 08-14 WRX? You advertise your V3 AOS for this model car and then fail to provide any install instructions.

Here's my V3 Install on an EJ255.

EJ255 Crawford V3 https://imgur.com/gallery/teuB0

Let me know what questions you have and I'll do my best to explain each picture. The one that threw me for a loop was the "to intake". This line was run to the white plastic part just above the PCV.

I have questions.

To start, I looked at your photos and if "to intake" (port 3) goes to the white PCV connector, where does port 4 connect?

The Crawford "instructions" say to "white valve", and what you have port 3 connected to is the only "white valve" I can find.

Second, where is the 17" hose supposed to go? "Instructions" simply say FROM right valve cover vent hose extension, but doesn't say where it's supposed to connect TO.

Third, what is the 1/2' straight fitting for?

So what's going on with the V3 for the GD cars? Noticed they said something about the hood not clearing? Is that the only issue? Does it hit a spot that's easy enough to cut out some of the support to get it to fit?

The bracket comes with the bend.
When bolting up the bracket, the hardest part is lining up the bolt holes if they have shifted after removing the bolts. If you have someone around that can pull back on the cover, use a mirror to determine when the holes are lined up, have them hold it there, then re-insert/tighten the bolts.

The V3 AOS will only work as intended it if it is installed per the instructions. The design utilizes the vacuum within the PCV system, so without it, it will not function properly.

Hood clearance is the only issue. That being said, nothing can be trimmed on the car to make it fit. We are working on R&D for a new can for the GD's.

Wow I’m trying to decide what AOS to buy. The Crawford was on the top of the list. Not now!! I see they answered some of your guys questions but they failed to address the hard to answer ones like when will you provide the instructions with the $400 part you sold.

Glad to see I'm not the only one having issues with MY08-14 WRX. Any updates on the install for the V3 yet? Don't mind taking her in to the guys at Fine Line, but would rather save that $$ for more parts..

We have added a WRX specific amendment to the instructions while we wrap up the WRX specific install video.

In addition, this statement along with a port diagram is on the backside of all parts lists in each kit, which applies to either model:

1. The original Subaru hose from the crankcase vent to the intake manifold is removed, then the open port at the manifold is connected to Port 1 on the AOS, and the open port on the crankcase is connected to Port 2 on the AOS.

2. The original Subaru hose from the crankcase vent to the intake tube before the turbo is removed, then the open port at the intake tube is connected to Port 3 on the AOS, and the open port on the crankcase vent is connected to Port 4 on the AOS.

Any of our customers are welcome to email [email protected] for one-on-one assistance with their installs.

See instructions here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/11...22103953975123

The WRX specific video should be released in a few weeks.

Please email us at [email protected] for any further assistance in the meantime.

Will you guys ever make a v3 for FMIC? (S0699) Or offer for us current STI v3 owners a relocation kit? Almost all aftermarket FMIC kits have piping that goes thru the current AOS v3 mounting location.

We will continue R&D for all vehicles and fitment options. Sign up for our newsletter on our website for product release updates.

We thank you for your patience as we perfect our kits before releasing them to the market!

The mounting bracket on the S0699 is location specific, so it cannot be relocated. Upon proof of purchase of the TMIC kit, we can offer an upgrade discount for those who would like to purchase the FMIC kit when released.

We have only come across one instance of a hood clearance issue, from a customer who had some sort of aftermarket spacers that raised his intake manifold higher than stock.
The question from tcoffin014 was in regards to retrofitting our current kit that is meant for a 2008+ STi/2008-2014 WRX vs. the older 2007 models. Only reason it cannot fit is because of the hood height, and the kit is not advertised for those cars. 2002-2007 WRX and STI's will get their own kit, currently in R&D.
As a tip, the kit is only $337 on Rallysportdirect.com

Yoohoo finally some update on thread...

This is where it got me and confusing area with WRX(2011). I think i am done it right way the only time I got feedback from, but it was not easy as just written. I can't wait to see the Video update on this.

"Open port on the crankcase vent" is "f" shape split come out and connect to white sensor piece correct? That with 5"x1/2" hose will not reach. so I had to remove that zigzag shape hose from intake (under manifold which is really hard to get into) and basically extend out to port4.

Anyway, after couple of month driving, I started to see the "oil smear" on Duct (right after intercooler). So I took out intercooler, and of course there are oil(Blowby) inside duct.

Cleaned off duct, outside and inside, re-checked all the tubing by AOS etc...

Couple days after, I already start seeing "Smear" look on the same area.
I am hoping it just some left overs oils in the system is recirculated to cause those. (I did clean most of the area in initial but.... there is not really a way to check if AOS is really cacthing the oil and sending it back.

I am guess quick check will be Port #1 and #3 should be completely dry, when #2 and #4 can be bit wet.... is my understanding correct?



Oh and even stock WRX does rub on the Hood insulation pad, but that doesn't count right? ha
