    Would you do this again as a First Mod

    I am still waiting for my car to arrive and I am debating the first mod. I have read several forums and I am debating what to do first.

    How many of you if you could do it over again would chose to put in an Crawford AOS (Air\Oil Separator) as a first mod. I know a lot of people want more power though since this would be my DD I would like to keep for a good amount of time.

    An AOS would not be on my list of "first modifications"

    I have the Grimspeed and would recommend that over the Crawford. There are a lot better places to start though.

    Ive looked at the grimspeed, though I have had some people suggest the Crawford. Then again they were making way more HP then stock

    I'd say a good first mod would be a catback or an axleback exhaust. Nothin like the unique exhaust note these cars have.

    personally Id allow the car to operate as completely mod-less as possible for the first 1,000 miles. As for the AOS, Grimmspeed is the unit to buy and your not really needing it until stage 2+
