Your primaries seem a little high. Have you checked your plugs? Do any of them look different?

recharged my air filter today and i actually got a chance to get my car out on the road and test it out. It does seem to be running smoother and it does have a little more git-up-n-go then it used to. just have the air filter left, but im thinkin it definantly needed this tune up. thanks for the help everyone.
