haha yeah. Got mine in yesterday and everything is still good today. Only "extra" thing I did on the install was clean up the side of the head a good bit where the housing mounts...

On a side note, it surprised me how much the o-ring on the plug was worn out after just a year, and how bad of shape the gasket for the housing-to-head was in the same amount of time. I just fixed all of this in January, about 12k miles ago, and it looked the same yesterday as 11 months ago. Glad I won't have to deal with this again (hopefully).
