FAQ of NG900/OG9-3 Parts and Wear Patterns

Ok I wanted to start a thead to discuss the wear limits of the common parts on a NG900/OG9-3. Sort of a FAQ for the OG series cars for newcomers and us old timers. Please feel free to add your experience to the list.

1. BPC - I have found in my experience I average about 30K on these
2. BPV - My 9-3 had 38K on it when it went bad
3. Vaccum Lines - First set at 45K
4. IAC - Dont have one on the 9-3
5. MAP Sensor - May be doing it shortly t 60K
6. MAF - 60K when I replaced mine
7. DIC - Replaced at 35K
8. (fill in the blanks)

I refuse to post any of my information because if I do then all of my parts will break.
