I always get carried away... don't know if I need the other stuff, haven't pulled the trigger yet.
Doubt you need any or much of that. Do you suspect you have a vacum leak? Make up the shipping price difference in gaskets or ccv parts as you will eventually do that.

so she got upset and pooped? ugh
wtf
i spanked her pretty hard several times ... she ran away and laid down with her face between her paws
then i felt bad so i rubbed her behind and now she's back at my side
Just hold up a frying pan and tell her she'd make a good snack.
