  1. I design something similar for aircraft engines now. Ours include a debris monitor since lubrication related engine failure at 20,000 feet is typically not good.

  2. Will IAG AOL UNIT adapt to a Ford Mustang I-4 L turbo 2016?.i curre ntly use a” JTL AOL Separator-DS”-since 1st. Track event 2017 ..I empty 3 to 5 oz. After each 2 day event..IAG Unit appears larger & returns oil to pan..$$$ Thx in advance for ur expert videos

  3. I have tracked this 2016 Mustang EcoBoost 6 spd manual for over 30,00 miles in 41,430mi. I live 26 mi from the “TAIL OF THE DRAGON” -318 TURN -11.mile Terror Ride in Tn. FOR STREET DUTY usually…upgraded race suspension/brakes/wheels & tires Toyo R88R or RR track days…I also Instruct HPDE with NASA-SE @ ROAD ATLANTA; VIR Alton Va ;ROEBLING ROAD,SC…THX SO MUCH FOR UR WISDOM SHAREING..BACK THE BLUE TOO

    1. The Killer B unit is also a great unit. It is the best of the nonheated AOSs. The main advantage the IAG part has is that it is heated to reduce sludging. This happens in short-hop street driving and cold weather. It is also more likely to happen when running E85. If you don’t want the complexity of running coolant to your AOS and are willing to forgo heating, the Killer Bee is the best.

  4. How does that compares to the Radium AOS i was planning to buy soon? I live in frosty Quebec and my car is my daily driver so a regular catch can is out of the question.
