The AOS increases intercooler efficiency by reducing the amount of oil deposited into your intercooler and intake system! As blow-by/oil builds up inside your intercooler, the less efficient it becomes due to less heat being transferred away from your engine. This leads to power loss and detonation, which can be damaging to your engine.
The PERRIN Air Oil Separator is not a catch can. Catch cans capture water and oil vapor filling with a sticky mess requiring it to be emptied. The PERRIN AOS separates engine oil from water vapor and allows it to drain back into the engine. Oil entering from the crankcase vents spins counter clockwise through the entire body of the AOS, passing along four walls equaling roughly 50.25 sq/in of surface area. The multiple baffle walls in our compact design simulate the surface area of an AOS that is 13.5" tall!As oil accumulates on all the walls, gravity pulls it to the bottom of the can where it drains back to the engine block while water vapor and air merge with the intake air and are re-burned in the engine. This means little maintenance or upkeep.
Instead of using a universal type fitting, we have designed a purpose built crank case fitting that does the job perfectly. Like the AOS body, the drain fitting is threaded to except virtually any kind of fitting to allow for easy customization on special projects.
Powder coated for protection against the elements, the textured finish will look awesome for years to come. The PERRIN AOS is available in black or red texture powder coating.
