I would be interested to know about the heat range 'debate?'. SPECIFICALLY > IF you run 103's (A103's, AR103's). Has anyone in this (prob) select group ever suffered fouling?
I recognize it could be an issue, but in a real world scenario does it really occur?
I ask only in that I have read that I should not run the AR103 due to stated concerns (by whynotthinkwhynot and others). But I have never read about anyone ever actually suffering from this. So on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being almost never), what are the chances normal street cars would have a problem running the cooler 103?

Thanks much!
Add > Not to get ahead of myself. IF a cooler plug is used. Would the tune need to be changed to take advantage?
