Several people have shown interest in starting another buy in the previous thread, so here's the chance for more.

In order to get a discount price direct from AMW we must order a minimum of 10 units. ANY color they offer (black, blue, red, satin) you desire can be ordered. The discount price would be $120 (no further discount) per unit plus freight to me, then USPS Flat rate box of $10.35 for me to ship them (Canada shipments $25.95). Approximate total price should be around $135 per unit shipped in the US, $146.95 to Canada. Regualr price when available is $161.95 plus shipping.

If you would like to get in please post here or send me a PM that your in for the purchase. I will let the purchase open until Oct. 8th. I then will start asking for the total amount to be paid, once I recieve the final quote from AMW. After all payments are recieved, I will send a cashiers check as required by AMW to purchase the units. Once I recieve them I will notify everyone and begin to ship them out.

These are going quick compared to the first purchase. I need a minimum of 10 units to place the order, it can be any number over 10 that can be ordered. I will let this go until Oct. 8th, which is 1 week after shootout.

Price remains the same $120 per unit plus the shipping to me, then shipping to you.

See the first group buy post for installation photos and the positive results from the first buy.

8 days left on this buy and we still need at least 2 more units accounted for to make the order. The 2 people from the first thread that asked for another buy are MIA :confused: on this, which would account for the minimum 10 order???

Thank you Ryan for your PM and for setting up this group buy. I hadn't seen this thread. I'm in for a clear one and very pleased to see that we have the required amount to make this happen. ;)

Let me know if you want the funds prior to Oct.8

Only couple days to go, Friday I will end the Group Buy and then send PM's to those signed up. I plan to call AMW for the total and have it all squared away on the 11th.

No problem, I'll be able to still add up until I actually place the order. If you got one for the boss and painted it a lime green, I'm sure she'd let you get one.

I should still be able to add yet, what color and how many do you want. I have not found another website that sells the AMW units yet.

Thomas A
10-11-2010, 06:53 PM
I guess I am trying to decide if it is worth buying it now at the GP price and letting it sit in the box for a couple of years or just buying one at regular price when I am actually ready for it.

I found them finally doing a google search for Haney Motorsports PCV, regular price is $161.95, in black only with limited quantities.

Does anyone know 93tbird06? I have sent him a couple PM's but he has not logged on here since 10-5-10, and he is the last one I am awaiting payment information on.

rzimmerl
10-14-2010, 07:58 PM
Ok since I am waiting on a payment to be mailed in I can leave the buy open until the end of next week when I get the cashiers check. So if your deciding if you want one or not now is the time to do it, and you'll have until next Thursday to pay at the latest, if its not in it won't get ordered. I probably won't be doing another buy after this one, so here's the last chance.

If you see the first post the order has not even been placed yet. It took nearly 2 months the last time from when I started to take money, to the time they were recieved by everyone. If you don't want to wait and would like your money back you have until Sunday to do so. Monday is the first time I have available to get a cashiers check, then send it Registered mail, since I just recieved the last payment yesterday. It will be a few weeks by the time they ship me the units and I ship them out to you.

I am doing this as a FREE service to everyone on my spare time, I am not making a dime on any of these sales just trying to help fellow SC members.

No I am not, I shipped out a USPS Flat Rate box last week and I had to pay for delivery confirmation. I'll look into it but assume your not getting it.

Not delivery confirmation. Tracking numbers are those looong numbers on the receipt they give you. You can plug them into the UPS web site and track your package for free. And if the package is never delivered it is the number you need to give UPS so they can figure out where it did go.

Delivery confirmation is just that, and yes, they do charge extra for it.

11-05-2010, 05:43 PM
I am not going to post all those tracking numbers up, I have to create a USPS account, fill out and print all these labels to get the tracking information. Sorry, if you don't get it by the end of the week send me a PM and I'll send you the tracking information. I am doing this on my free time which is limited since I am leaving tomorrow morning for the weekend. Couple of the orders have to go Fedex since the USPS boxes won't fit more then 1 unit, and I have to fill out the customs forms for the International orders which I have to do at the post office since they are very picky on how they are filled out. Sorry if I sound like a prick but it takes alot of time to do all of this, hence this is why this is the last order I will be doing.

I had a way cheaper oil separator system installed on my SC and it caused erratic idle, stalling and oil leaks out of my valve covers due to the oil separator causing the PVC valve not to do it's full job of relieving the crank pressure. It acted like a vacuum leak I was told. I removed the set up and my car ran so much better and made more power. Has anyone else heard of any issues when running a oil separator? Now again my set up was not anywhere as professional or nice this one so I am not wanting to stir up any bad blood I am just trying to educate myself.

Nope no problems with these units when you have them plumbed correctly. I have used mine all year, no differences in driveability, and I've removed quite a few ounces of oily stuff from it. It sounds like your unit was not hooked up correctly allowing the PCV valve to do its job and that will cause the issues you are describing.

All the Canadian shipments went out on 11-6. When I shipped them from the post office no tracking information was given and I could not purchase delivery confirmation. I marked the box on the customs form to return to sender for a fee if there was any issues with it. If the box is returned to me, I will require the return fee and shipping cost payment to ship it out again. Sorry guys, but thats the way it goes with international shipments. I am not making any profit on these sales so there is nothing for me to cover the shipping costs with.

FraserThat's true, but there really wasn't any other available real estate in my engine compartment. Another option to drain it is to unscrew the top and suction the oil out....this is likely the option I will use.

That's how I drained mine. Only takes a couple minutes to remove the upper hose, unscrew the top and suction it out with a brake bleeder pump.
