Get the Intense Fender Well Intake, well worth it and comes with pcm tray (holder).

How do you get that in Canada?And ya it is rewarding doing the work yourself.I called dealer about rear pass window reg & motor they said 600 for the part.I am going to a mechanic tomorrow who got a used or reman for 120 plus 1 hr install.

$120cdn is a great price for a regulator. There is a write up in the 2000 forum on how to change it out too

Intense ships to Canada, you may or may not have to pay duty depending how customs feels that day. If you have to pay its only the province and gst which you would have to pay if you bought it local. Never get courier shipping, ups and others charge an expiditing fee of $28us or higher. Postal system is best.

I agree and your still saving a ton of money over going to the dealer.

Wow..that was a good price for the window regulator. I am now worried mine might go from lack of use...seize or something?

They won't seize from lack of use..but expect them to break when you do use them. Seems that every 00+ has the issue.
