Hey so happy ending. I found a guy who happened to have one in his scrap yard out of a wrecked insight. it had 26k on it but i tested it with my meeter and it looked ok. its now sitting in my insight and i haven't had a single problem yet. the install was quite simple just a lot of screws.
the best part of it all was the guy didn't want the controller so he gave it all to me! i'm going to take that 144volt dc-dc off of that and see if i might be able to use it for my EV. SWEET!
I did look in to getting a new battery but i think you can only get it installed for $3000, not separate w/o installation.
