Have never changed my AOS on 07 Cayman S. Spoke with Vertex about their modification that routes the dirty air to the other side of the throttle body, preventing the possibility of oil being ingested into intake manifold which happened to my friends Boxster S, which hydrolocked and broke the engine. What is your opinion of such an approach?

I don't have any experience with that modification. I opened a post in our forums. A Pelican community member may be able to answer your question.

Seems they are not very well made. Life cycle is about 35K. At least on my 01 986 S. I am installing my third one. I will not wait for smoke again and will make it a routine replacement part at 30K. Sad Porsche could not make a better diaphragm.
