I gave it 10 k in miles time... I mean if it were going to have problems it'd start now, right? I check my seals frequently and I just messed with hood insulation today... This was done after about 2 hours of driving and if it didn't burn my fingers, i'm sure it won't wear a hole in my hood insulation.

Right about the cleaner though... But my buddy usually buys it and lets me use his

Oiled filters are bad for maf sensors... Can always buy a dry one though.

10/10 for my typhoon thus far...
