    Well I wouldn't spend $300 on it either. But the group buy is $210, which is still a little pricey for a fancy catch can. But I'm liking the idea/design.

    Ya, $200 is better and should be normal price in my opinion, but not like what I think matters. Ha. I just think it's nifty in how it knocks out the needs for 2 separate units.

    $400!?!?! And i though $300 was bad. I've never seen the Prova design, nifty little knock off they did. Agreed on the price though, it should be $200. I guess thats why the group buy has over 70 people signed up.

    If I still had my Subaru I'd be on the list too.

    That is a good read. Some very good questions, I'm interested to see if GrimmSpeed can satisfy the critics. But I know nothing of the Crawford AOS, so i'll have to do some more research.

    I won't say that I dislike everything Crawford, but I do know that their reputation isn't anything to write home about. But if they have actually designed a more effective AOS, then good for them. Will I spend $380 on it, when I can run two catch cans for significantly cheaper? No, unless I win the lottery.

    I think I'll be spending some free time boning up on the PCV system.

    For the guys saying its a knock off of a prova, it definitely is not. Yes it may look similiar, but from a functionality stand point, it is a bit more advanced. Our allows you to vent both the heads AND the crank(not just heads like the competition). Also we have a very meety section of baffling in the middle of our AOS where as the compeition doesnt have any at all. Also, ours allows you to maintain your oem pcv valve which is a huge bonus.

    And as far as price, we are way under the competition. So for more features and a lower price...well you make the decision.

    Sorry, the "knock off" comment was meant in jest. It is obvious by looking at the product and reading the description that it is more advanced/has more features. And I was unaware of the $400+ price tag of the prova, so by comparison, your product is very well priced.

    No insults were meant, I'm a fan of GS products, you guys were great with me when a bought a DP and ran into fitment issues. Just trying to understand the product.
