Not today, but yesterday picked up the X after a catalytic converter replacement. Result is no more CEL, and the car feels like it has more power. Not tons but it feels "freer" if that's a thing.

Anyone interested in some BC coilovers.
Got a gently used set looking to move.
Decided to go another direction.

I replaced the passenger front regulator in under an hour, start to finish. Getting quite good at it. I went with URO again since I was happy with the quality last time.

Replaced my OFHG. Used a new Viton gasket. ECS still has them. They're pricey, but I'll likely never have to replace it again. If you're considering getting one, I'd do it now. the price has jumped considerably. The one I took out was hard, stiff and flat. It had been leaking for quite some time. Not a lot, just seepage. Lots of oil and dust stuck to the block. No active drips.
