    Just bought 02 coupe with the F23a1. It has 160,000 miles.
    Im making a list of which parts to check and replace.
    Includes parts for but not only,
    Engine, suspension, etc.
    Anyone with some advice would be appreciated. I dnot Know if it has LSD on it but what ever it is i want to replace, and sooner or later swap out the engine, but for now I want it to start feeling new again, since I plan on keeping it and fixing it up very nicely.

    It's an open differential. One wheel spins.
