I'm not a car expert but this is serious stuff. IMHO anyone who says that it is the fully the OP's fault since he is modifying his car might be partially correct but most of the blame needs to be put on AA. If all of these potential issues are not advertised then they are doing a disservice to the tuning community. We should not have to scour internet forums to find these types of potential issues. They need to be clearly advertised on their web-site with complete research write-ups of the causes, likelihood of failure, potential solutions and lessons learned. After looking at the AA web-site there is very little information on these kits.
Example: If we now know that no 5 has been causing issues than this should be stated with an estimate likelihood of potential failure.
But if what you are saying is true on their recommendations, then they will not be getting my business.
