Yes but upper intake will be less of an issue and you can control and possibly prevent failure in the future. Its possible that 2000+ is a valid option but the L67 of that vintage is too spendy

Just looking at all the options.

So is mine. Having column shifts leaves lots of room on the floor for a nice custom console. And even though mine is just a lowly LE model I still managed steering wheel controls and the auto climate control. :P
