Default Brian Crower stuff

Ok so a company that I want to build me a motor want to use Brian Crower's 2.7L Stroker kit for the block with a different companies cams. I was curious, since I have heard bad things about Brians Cams, if anyone has ever used it or not. How are they compared to ones like the Cobb or the Gruppe-S kits? Any imput is appreciated,
Matt

I believe AR Fab took Crower's kit and just renamed it, but I can't say that with 100% certainty (OK, yes I can).
I've never heard anything bad about Crower and know a few people running his components that are extremely happy, but cams in a Subaru is something I know of no one running.
Brian is not a big fan of swapping out his components, but I've built a 2.7L kit using a part from each major manufacturer while only using the Crower crank.
As far as I can attest, it gets the thumbs up from me.

I've been hearing that all the BC products are different now, people with DSM's are testing their NEW cams to be better quality than HKS's and theyre a fraction of the price, I have no first hand experience besides that, but from what I'm hearing about their new stuff it seems pretty good
