Within 2 months of having the Hoppen chip installed, my M-M hose went 
from absolutely bone-dry (120k miles) to always being puddled with 
oil. Of course that same 2-month period included a weekend at Watkins 
Glen last summer,  after which I first noticed the oil.  I've decided 
to limit  concern (ever the optimist) to the M-M hose, which will 
deteriorate more quickly--now that it's perpetually oily.
