Wow ! Impressive result, congratuilations !

There are quite a lot of these Subaru inductors in GTA02. I wonder
how many more silent contributors to global warming of this kind
we have, e.g., IO_3V3 or USB power.

Has anyone been able to locate a data sheet for the Subaru parts
so that one could see if the specifications give any hint ?
