So a friend likes my 02 so well he's looking for his own X. He found an 06 with 108K that seems clean. I told him about SMOD and the timing belt. Is the SMOD failure something that can happen anytime or would this one be considered safe? He'll do a trans cooler for sure regardless he says. What else should be changed while the TB is being changed?

thanks

No timing belt in 05+. But listen for a whine - the timing chain guides wear down typically and it's an expensive repair.

SMOD can happen anytime. I would carefully inspect the coolant and trans fluid. If all looks good and working good, it's probably fine if you immediately do the bypass.
