tthe plugs and wires were originaly about a year and a half old i changed the coils and plugs when this problem first started and it seemed to help but now it is behaving worse in some ways i really wish that somebody could drive the thing to see what i mean

just one more update, stay away from the summit brand coils, the website has them pictured as msd style coils and when i got them they look like accels. two went bad after about a month. summit took them back and upgraded me to real msd'* for free

i have some generic OBD II monitering software but nothing like hp tuners that can edit.

i go back and forth between 3.4 and 3.5 i intend to have the exhaust opened up a little before i do the pulley swap and a shift kit as well, i figured that those would be good supporting mods for a 3.5 or 3.4 pulley
