Hey folks.

Due to the recent outbreak of the Corona-Virus in China, production critical parts for Korean Hyundai factories cannot be delivered and therefore production has been temporarily halted.

This will most likely also affect the Theta 2.0L T-GDi engine due to a wiring-harness shortage as most of them are manufactured in Korea.

CDC: 80,000 people died of flu last winter in the U.S alone.

One of the easiest ways to overt contamination is to; first keep your hands away from your face especially in public. Keep a small bottle of alcohol (not sanitizer) in your pocket. Use it when you have to touch or utilize public facilities of any kind. If you have a communal work area, wear a surgical mask if people around you are noticeably sick.
