Just saw this picture, and wanted to point out that my canistor melted at the bottom sitting in that stock location. This happened due to the combination of cast manifolds (gc lites) and track use. With stock double-walled manifolds it shouldnt be a problem. Just a heads up anyway.

Out of curiosity which brand coils were failing? I went thru Bosch and Delphi like they were water. Running same Eldors for last 4.5 yrs.
