Can you show me where you found your 80k gauss magnets? Just as an example, a 2" x 2" x 1" N48 magnet (like I have sitting on my desk) has a ~250lb pull force and can very easily break your fingers, and would risk ripping things off in the engine bay that have any kind of steel on or in them, tearing fuel lines and wires. Its surface field is approximately 5,000 gauss.
