Default tune up update (with pics!)

out with the old and busted


in with the new hottness!




62,000 on factory NGK'*? didn't know they used them from the factory.


all done!


surprisingly easy to do the wires, didn't even need the lift. #6 fought me all the way though. And on the coil for #3 the end was all black and corroded. The car runs so much better now and idles with out shaking...next is the water pump (it'* going) and then onto the CAI and the pulley.

Real good looking job there. Everything is neat & clean, like a submarine engine room.

Don't laugh, but was it easy to remove the coils or were they totally corroded to the ignition module?

thanks! actually i've only washed the engine bay once..it'* not bad considering i live in MA and the car has 62k on it. The coils were pretty easy to get off, not much corrision, there was some but i just cleaned them up a little. And the smaller pulley is comming soon don't worry, i can't wait.

Good job.
I would recommend that you install some plastic snap on wire protectors where ever you have two wires touching each other and to isolate them from other engine parts. This will help protect against cross firing and voltage leakage.

What kind of plugs did you put in? If your changing your pulley and doing a cai i would recommend 1 range cooler plugs and a 180 T-stat. Looks good to me. Aren't the back 3 a pain in the ***?
