They're out there. That lady just out of frame came into the intersection a good 3-5 seconds after I had the light. I was able to stop but apparently not fast enough.

An iPad and this forum have been a good companion in the shitter.

Then you can read all the parts catalogs until you're blue in the face.

Nice examples of a 15yr old design are going to be few and far between, even here in sunny CA. If you really like it, and is the "exact car" you want, get it.

I doubt it. That thing must have had something else wrong, like a defective CCV or a lifetime of short trips.

Check that the hose that runs the top of the valve cover still has the o-rings. That's the only hose that would possibly use that diameter.

That looks clean enough to check out. I'd make the trip sooner than later. For that price it probably won't stay on the lot for too long.

Interesting. I've never done it on PA Soft, only on INPA. Can you post a screenshot where it's at? Thanks.

That port is appropriately plugged with a dummy if you look closely. It appears you have an MS45 controlled M54, in which case the intake air temp function is built into the MAF.

That's a lot cheaper than the identical set and specs that Tikore has put out at $649. I'd do some more research before jumping in.

I'd let it go if that were me. That's too far down the rabbit hole to be worth it. I'm sure you can get a suitable replacement for less money and hassle it would take to remedy that.

I'd be more concerned with the fact it's $399 for the entire set. For a car sitting in an exhibit, maybe. For one daily driven in SF, I'm not so sure.

If you really have an N54, post some pics!! I've heard such a swap talked about here but nobody has come forward with pictures.

If that's an M54, JFOJ has pointed you in the right direction.
