Did they swap over your engine accesories or use the one from the other engine.
Point being, my Alternator went at about 120k miles. Be ready for it.

|Johnz826||Then u should be in good shape for right now the way it sounds. But wat about a radiator flush? most people over look that and it is pretty important, cuz its do a major part by keepin the engine cool. Get that flushed so that sludge doesn't start to buil up, and u can do that once a year. Other then that jus keep up wit her the way ur doin it and u won't any major problems. Promise.|

|Johnz826||Well if ur not on syntehtic u might as well switch it to that. Manual tran.fluid should be changed at about 100k. Get new spark plugs, check timing, radiator flush, brakes check especially e-barke, air filter, and you should be good from there.|

120,000 service soon up
My 99 9-3 will soon reach the 120,000 mark, but the engine itself only has 80k because the old one had sludge issues and I replaced it 2 yrs ago. Anyway, what should should be looked over and changed at this point, engine and mechanically wise.
