Thumbs up After a long winter, a tuneup is MUCH needed.

So, after a long winter of sitting in my garage, it'* that time again. My Bonne is coming out to play again. But i realized today that it hasnt had a full tuneup in ages...

It'* going to the garage already for valve cover gaskets, a few leaky bits of fuel line, leaky brake lines, and a fuel filter. Is there anything else i should have done while it'* there?

Also, what would you guys recommend for plugs, wires, air filter, etc?

Also, I've heard that Flowmaster makes an exhaust that fits our cars?

Thanks.

What year and trim is your car?

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

Autolite copper plugs, stock replacement wires, check the coils. A new air filter is a real good idea.

Yes, Flowmaster series 80 if you have a 1 in 2 out muffler.
