    aye, the Ka comes with either a pony 60ps Endura or 70ps in the Duratec models of the 1.3.

    I've already bought the engine and the new Ka comes through tonight! Can't wait to get started.

    It's a 13v Zener diode and it has no purpose lol. It should be the other way around and be the first thing the 12v rail passes through.
