I drove my 04 RL for 7 years before replacing my i/c pump.
I can't really tell the difference, ecotec is a bad bitch.
almost 200,000 and no smoke no leak.....I do love her.

Good! Intercooler pump is a must for a pulley. Rest is fine. Just keep an eye on it now

Move the heat exchanger to the front. Been proven that alone will drop iat2 10-15 degrees

Very good idea, never thought of that.

I am going to do the oil and coupler soon, dying to see how much oil is in the supercharger.

Do that outside. The supercharger oil smells like dead animal thats been baking in the sun for a week when you open it up

My IC pump died. I found out because the engine would cut out on me and it was throwing MAF codes. I think the ECM is programmed to expected the temp drop. Anyways, I wasn't going to spend $150 on a new pump so I went to the salvage yard and pulled one off of a Lincoln LS. lol

i got mine for @ $80 off amazon, its nice when things work.......... I'm still amazed i had very minimal problems when the i/c wasn't working, she should be happy for a while now.
Now it's the rust underneath i gots to deal with.

I'm surprised a used one is working for you. Those things dont last long. I have had to change mine twice in the last 4 years.

....and I looked at the cluster of heat radiators in the front of the car, it looks like a great big pain in the ass.
