They are all regular failure items which also tend to compromise driveability. These things will make the 8 year old car work right again. Even if they are not bad now, they will be soon.

Reading comprehension? I said I was looking for a NEW one and OEM. I secured one in under an hour for $260. I just had no interest in paying the retail of EEURO at $379.

I planned on a new AMM before tuning the car, CPS and pump as you said will give me some insurance.

As to how much I paid, I surely overpaid. I was willing to to grab it with a 5mt at that price.

106k, one owner car, seats look like they had never been sat in.

And Throttle body, I think those are 80-100k items.

Yeah, I replaced the TB in my cousin's 9-5 Aero, not too bad of a job.

I used smoke plasti-dip, gave it a very similar finish to the OEM trim of the TurboX.
