no you dont have to replace the hub, you do need a press though, do what i did with my rear wheel bearing, i just took off the upright and took it to a shop with a press and had it pressed for $20 alot better than the $175 i paid for someone to do it.

would most likely throw a CEL at you. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. and depending onwhat you boost it too, you might be running a little leaner than you want to be. which is not good. don't want detonation in those cylinders! thats a BIG EXPENSIVE boo boo.
