    While either of those 5-2-1's will probably work, you should install only OEM parts if you are concerned about potential failures during triple digit temps.
    Ah thank you! This was a very helpful reply! Ok so makes sense that I should keep the potential relay the same, I didn't realize they could vary that much. Thank you!
