Default prepping my new '94 help please

Had a '90 that I loved but hit a light pole with on ice so bought a '94 base replacement. I know the car was cred for, it'* in excellent condition, but don't have any type of maintenance history. What are recommendadtions for a parts replacement schedule. sensors& etc. Also, I am modifying the look a "small" amount and would like to remove the "Pontiac" letters from the very back above the bumper. are they glued on or mounted on posts? Additioanlly, I would like to get the profile to more closely match the current stance as viewed from the side. Anyone have experience swapping JUST the back tires to "17'* and leaving the front the stock "16'*?

All the normal tuneup items. PCV, fuel filter, air filter (K&N dropin would be great), plugs and wires. Stock wires are only good for about 50k on these cars. If they still are gray with the cylinder numbers, replace them. Any NGK or AC Delco plug (AC'* are made by NGK). The O2 sensor is in much the same boat as the plug wires. 50-60k means it'* getting tired, and me be hurting efficiencey/performance.

The Pontiac badge on the base of the trunk lid is just an adhesive foam backing. I think a couple here have removed them successfully.

I might have left a couple things out....like cleaning the Throttle body (remove it to do it, and remove the MAF....just ask for details). I'll let some other'* chime in here.

Welcome to the club!
