Here's two rollers that I was able to get from our F cruise this past weekend when I was going home. My friend Barry also bought himself and I an AOS for Christmas - we tackled the install and he was able to figure out how to install it WITHOUT cutting the engine cover. He flipped the bracket that RR-Racing provided and re-positioned some of the hoses and was able to make it work.

Last three pics are not part of my build, but Barry did an awesome job wrapping his engine cover unicorn white (that's what I call it LOL). He made a few adjustments to the wrapped engine cover after I took the photos so they look even better now.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Steven, what a great Xmas to get car mods for presents!
How awesome you got aos installed without cutting! I lamented about cutting mine.
I will say that draining the canister in that mounting position looks hard to do...
When on track, I dump that thing each session. I recall you saying you want to track your car, so that may be an issue?
May be you can change the two oem bolts to some kind of quick release, then pull the whole unit, bracket and all, up out of the hole?
Lmk your thoughts. Do a test with the engine slightly warm so you can see how it may be like if engine is hot!!

Btw the cover looks great!

Hey Ming,

Thanks for your input! The only issue is that it is sitting lower than intended and that the radiator hose is there. It's still fairly easy to access since it's in a position where there's room for me to put my hand in and remove it - it's one bolt and two hoses to release the catch can. It does take a little longer compared to how it originally is supposed to be and harder to see when it's full, but at the cost of not having to cut the cover, I personally think it's worth it (I'll cut the engine cover and reinstall if emptying the AOS becomes too much of a chore for me to empty during track days).

I can try to make a quick release and I'll let you guys know. Gotta thank Barry for this as he did this mainly for people who did not want to cut their engine cover but wanted AOS to prevent oil from getting into their engine.

Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas/New Years!

Snapped a few photos a week ago but was busy with the new year so I didnít get to upload.

When this rain lightens up, Iíll be changing out my brake lines to StopTech stainless steel! As for now, Iím just taking BART to work

Sorry about the extra large pics - Iíll edit them to a more bearable size when I get home today.

Man those yellow calipers looks right on your car!! purty!!

you'll like the stop tech lines. Might as well change all the fluid while you’re at it.
I recommend Castro srf. Awesome stuff. Lil’ pricey though if you’re gonna bleed brakes all the time for track days.

Thank you Ming! Yeah, bleeding the brakes is definitely on the to do list. so thank you for the rec. I'm excited to see what the lines will do - I've heard nothing but good things.

Our Norcal F chat has talks of a track day in April/May at Thunderhill so hopefully we can make that happen. I'll probably buy some R888R for the OEM wheels and possibly pick up the TOMS suspension bracing if it's in the budget. Excited to see what this thing is capable of on bags!
