Following up to my Youtube video, i'd though i share my post-installation experiences. When starting the car, you will notice that the OEM temperature gauge is moving, but the Prosport water temperature gauge will be still. The gauge will start moving when the car's gauge will be almost at operating temperature. At approximately the same point, the oil temperature gauge will also start moving. After the car is at full operating temperature, give it some gas, and then rev it to 9000 rpm, and make sure that the oil pressure gauge does not exceed 6 bar or 80PSI. The max Oil temperature must not exceed 100°C/210F. Water temperature under heavy load, must not exceed 100°C/212F. When i started the car and let it idle, the water temperature gauge went all the way to 104°C and started flashing and beeping. I check the temperature on my OBD2 scanner, and it showed that my peak temperature was 98°. I suspect that the water temperature gauge is out of calibration, and there is a way to calibrate it, so make it show the actual temperature. I'll post the tutorial once i get it done. I also left out 3 swires (like the main power ones, red,orange,white,black) that i had no idea where to connect. If any of you guys have experience with these gauges, feel free to comment :)

If you chose to upgrade your coils to the D585 or any other variant and you get a CEL afterwards ( P0354 - P0353 - P0352 - P0351 ), here's how to proceed: 1) Make sure that when you upgraded the coils, you also changed your wires and spark plugs. The OEM wires are too thin to handle the Stronger LS coils and you'll end up having issues. So get thicker wires to compensate for stronger coils. (link in my video on yt) 2) A CEL can happen because you have higher charge than normal. Simply reset the NVRAM by pumping the brakes 20x fast untill the oil pressure gauge moves. Then simply cancel the code if it does not go away on itself. This should solve the issue. 3) If this doesn't help, then answer the following questions and you'll get an answer. 1. Does the car start, idle hot without problems? 2. Does the check engine light flash on and off or is it steady? 3. What coils did you have before on the car? Mazda original or copies? What exact coils did you install now? (post link) 4. Does the car drive well, i.e. full power and not hesitation etc? 5. Did you change everything together, Coils wires and plugs? 6. Has your car been imported from Japan?
