Bought aluminum front rear diff bushing, and PowerFlex rear both rear diff and subframe bushings.
Also ordered center bearing support, CV joint gasket and pre-face lift headlight lenses.
I already have the face lift headlights, but I kind of like the retro look.

Me: “Installing these pedal covers will be easy, should take me 30 min.”

Does this look like this was a 30 min job?




Also, added these floor mats that took 3 months to receive.

Lots! Wrapped up cleaning under the wheel well liners, cleaned and painted the liners themselves as well as the pork chops. Buttoned up the windshield washer tank work, replaced the noisy SAP pump with a new one, replaced both Dinan CAI filters and started to tackle replacing the wiper washer hose harness and realized I bought the single nozzle version and not the two nozzle version.

...replaced the noisy SAP pump with a new one...
Mine's super noisy too. I tell unsuspecting passengers that there's a little robot inside the engine bay vacuuming all the dust before we hit the road. Seems legit.

Where'd you get yours from? I plan on removing the front bumper cover eventually for a couple items and may tackle this at the same time.

ECS bought a peterburg unit, think it was less than $200. Install was not that difficult though the wheel well pork chop. I’m working on an install diy video.

It's because the Dinan CAI makes you flip the SAP in order to fit the intake. Obviously, it doesn't have the proper bearings to support this. I mean, besides age and miles, the above will cause a pretty quick (slow) death to the pump.

Makes sense. For what it’s worth, I think mine was original, and the car has over 100,000 miles and is 18 years old, which ain’t that bad if I replaced the SAP now :)

I installed my CAI at 105k and my SAP is original. It definitely started making a different noise right away. It didn't get loud until a few thousand miles later. Now at almost 130k it's pretty loud, like a Shop-Vac. Someday I'll just pull the fuse or pop the connector. It'll be interesting to see how yours gets along.
