The IAG Version 2 Subaru WRX / STI oil pickup replaces the OEM EJ25 oil pickup which is prone to failure. It's a well-known fact that the OEM oil pickups often crack and fail which in most cases destroys your motor from lack of oil pressure. The original IAG Performance pickup design has been improved in this all-new stainless steel version.
To avoid the cracking failures seen in the OEM oil pickup tubes, the oil pickup is manufactured from stainless steel tubing that is 2x thicker than OEM. Additionally, it features a flange machined from 3/8" stainless steel to mate with the block, sealed with a Viton O-ring. The integrated heavy-duty stainless steel mounting bracket uses two mounting points rather than the OEM single mounting point. Furthermore, the oil pickup features a formed bottom with an OEM style mesh screen for proper filtration.
The TIG-welded oil pickup increased material thickness matched with the two-point heavy-duty mounting bracket helps ensure it does not fatigue and fail over time like an OEM unit.
Install Note: 2.0 Liter cars need to switch to 2.5 oil pan
