Default For the billionth time

I know this has been asked so many times but Im lazy and dont want to look for the thread.

Want to do a tune up in the coming weeks and need to know a few things

What are good plugs and wires to get, I have about 250 in the budget to do this stuff including a oil change and supercharger oil change

If your plugs and wires are old, you'll notice a difference. Back to stock (new) levels of performance and efficiency. Coils won't buy you much unless you have a bad/weak coil(*).

$250!

Fuel filters are also a big help. PCV too. Heck you can maybe pull off a tune up + CAI

Jasons right. Get the fuel filter (10 minute job) PCV valve, and don't forget your air filter. Why only do half the job?

PDad, I was gonna question your prices, but I forgot. Your Canadian. Too lazy to do the math, but most of that could be cut about in half for US DOllars. Ya had me scared for a minute!!

BTW, the plug/wire combination I posted is by NO means the best or only option out there. I was posting a proven combination in my own car from experience. MSD makes great wires, and there are other plugs.
