I have a little over 10,000 miles on the engine now, still runs great, mileage is about 24 MPGs with the ATs and 22 with the MTs (corected after calculating my tire size). I am still fighting a valve cover gasket leak so my advice is to stick with Kia gaskets, I can't remember what brand mine was but it leakes on the cam bearing humps.


95 Sportage, gone but not forgotten.
98 Jeep TJ, 4" Zone springs with RC Long arms, Ford 8.8", 4.56 gears & Detroit locker rear, D30, 4.56 & Detroit Trutrack front.
