I contacted Accurate Machine Works about setting up a group purchase price schedule for the high quality AMW PCV Oil Catch Can kit and they agreed. Below are the price breakdowns. Please reply if your interested and send me a PM with your color choice and full name, so I put together a list for the group purchase.

These kits normally sell for $169.95 individually at AMW http://www.accmachtech.com/

5 standard AMW kits, any amount of different colors, $154.95 each.
10 standard AMW kits, any amount of different colors, $149.95 each.
15 standard AMW kits, any amount of different colors, $144.95 each.
20 standard AMW kits, any amount of different colors, $139.95 each.

Please add $9 shipping to anywhere in the USA.

I've done a lot of research on these oil catch can kits and I believe this is one of the better one's on the market IMO. There are a lot of cheaper kits out there, but I truely believe you get what you pay for with these AMW kits. These AMW kits are designed to capture more oil than the cheaper setups. These cheaper kits may catch some oil, but I think alot of oil never condenses and passes right through them due to a lack of baffles and other design features. I hope many of you decide to get on board with this group purchase. Thanks.

Gosh, I just bought mine last week. I wish I would have known about this! I highly recommend it, believe it or not, my truck instantly started running better, and I have picked up about .5 mpg. Got 19.5 on my last trip in the 06 (w/4.10 gears!)

Engines are prone to accumulation of an oil sludge mixture forming inside the intake tract due to crankcase pressure, piston blow-by, and inefficient combustion. And although oil in the intake track is normal it can reduce engine performance.
An oil catch can will trap most of this oily byproduct by removing it from PCV intake stream. By doing so, horsepower is then increased by eliminating the engine’s current requirement to try and burn this relatively non-combustible oil. Engine life is extended due to this oil not having the ability to gum up the valve train and other moving parts and sensors.

If you google "Benefits of an Oil Catch Can" you'll have enough reading to keep you busy for a very long time and you'll quickly find that this issue is a problem with all vehicles to some extent. You maybe wondering why if this such a problem why doesn't manufactures add these catch can systems directly from the factory? The truth of the matter is that some people will not even check their oil level or remember to change their vehicles oil when they're supposed to, so adding a catch can system that needs to be emptied in an enviromenatlly friendly way from time to time might definitly be asking too much of these mechanically reclined individuals.

Here is what I was given for shipping to Canada by Mike from AMW:

$9 for first class
$23 for priority, 6-10 days
$35 for express, 3-5 days

AMW seems to be quite reasonable on their shipping rates IMO.

Is this in addition to the $9 shipping to anywhere in the US? Either way, put me down for one, in blue.
