My first build I had a small leak under the manifold and it soaked my harness - the coolant has such a high vapor pressure that it never really dried out - combine an...

I agree with you on the cop. My ka runs so much smoother than any other I've owned...part of it is the ati damper, but I got think the aem and cop are helping. All of my issues are self inflected at this point. Silly little problems that I caused when I inverted the damn battery

Wow, thats the best written set of instructions I've seen come out of any of the major Japanese brands...I kinda wish my own build was not as complete so I could give them some business.
