Moisture can be sucked into your system by vacuum if you have a leak or the system left open for any length of time. Freezing can also be caused by yo...

Re: C6 into 62 (revisited)

From what I can remember you have to do some mods to the mount as the C6 mounting position sits further back. There should be other posts on the topic. I'm sure I've seen pictures of the mod.
