yeah, it just wasn't worth the headache to me, especially for the price. I mean I like having the pride that I've done my own work, but I'm not too proud to say "Hey, I was smart and just paid someone to do it so I didn't have to"
No shame in that. That line is a pain to replace. I've done it twice. 75 bucks is a deal.

I think you need to buy this from me
engine mod list needs to grow some to match the suspension. that is a nice list BTW...
well, my plan with this was to focus on suspension, since I've never done that on a car, and for once was able to. Now I'm going to slowly get it looking how I want (just a few more little things), and a few engine mods. I think eventually I might do some sort of swap (Ahem, thanks BXX, for giving me ideas!).
What will that do for me? A bigger TB it looks like?
Also, does anyone know if it would be worth an obd2 swap, assuming I could find a 96-97 LQ1 harness?
Oh, I don't know I was thinking about throwing it on the for sale section and get rid of it but seeing that list made me think of it.
I was gonna ask for $200 for it I was thinking. not really sure because they retail for like $350 or so. the guy I got my drop kit from handed me that with the title to his olds. and I got it all for super cheap! he said he had that sensor on his car for a brief time and recently took it off and threw the stock one on to get rid of it. he said it works too.
Ill give you a good deal if you are interested.
That MAF would gain you a hole in your wallet.
Drive the LQ1 until it bites the dust. Then we can work on a nice budget LX9 swap.
-08 Kia Spectra SX -2.0L BetaII/Auto
-02 Buick Rendezvous CXL -3.5L LX9 Swap/4t65e
The only difference I can see is it's bigger. But you can only fit so much air into the engine as it is, I don't see how you'd gain anything.
you would be right technically. you would have to add exactly one exhaust mod at the same time you add exactly one intake mod for any marked improvement.
