I did mine at 48k miles
The biggest reason for the premptive replacement is that the aluminum engine block
can not stand even a small amount of over heating. Anytime you seen the temp past midline
shut it down and find out why. The rest is cheap insurance.
stewart water pump (though bosch is 1/3rd the price)
thermostat and enclosure (stayed with a new phenolic)
hoses and serpentine belt
radiator with expansion tank
all in all $450 parts but with bosch components around 300
I thought the stewart pump wasn't worth the 3x price.
car is beautiful. and 15 years old.
