Gave the car a oil and filter tonite, pulled the #6 plug for a little inspection was suprised to see it so clean? They're only a year old but the wires are original.
Getting new plugs, wires and coils when I get back, new cabin filter too mines had it.

Might go back to the stock sc pulley for the trip.....might not? will decide tomorrow.
I need reliability for the trip and with a weak ignition it maybe prudent?

Noooo. Don't shed those 30 ponies just because of a PCM fart.

Mine did that once the first week after I installed my pulley. I might be a learning thing. Hasn't done it since.
Once when I started it, it was coughing and stuttering. Turned it off, then on again and it was fine.
These computers are overly sensitive.

If you do go back to the stock pulley you will get better mileage for those 1200 mi.

Hope your daughter wins.
