I doubt there is any downside to this mod in Australia...

First, if you have had a tune it's probably rich as **** to save the bacon of the tuner company.

Secondly, a lot of us. Especially if you're into tuning, you will have a wideband AFR guage.

And lastly, I doubt there is any worry of cold enough temperatures to condensate post injectors as it's practically inside the block. As soon as the engine is warm which doesn't take long. And you're not going to blow up an engine by leaning out as soon as you turn the key. Unless you limo bash it from as soon as you turn the key.

Been running this mod for years, same engine. Blocks done plenty track days. Had it in the hills in the snow even.
