It did last since 2011, time to replace and relocate.
Wow. I guess you're alright, which is good. FWIW, mine is on the passenger side, toward the engine compartment, between the battery and the intake manifold, above the transmission. It has been there maybe 6 or 8 months without problems. The CAT is probably 900 degrees sometimes, I guess. That's gotta be the issue. I have my build process in my modding thread if you are curious. (See link below.)


It's about 175ci

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
