    85k on the bird, tune up questions

    Ive had her since 5 years ago/50k and have had no probs, (knock on wood) and she still is running awesome, maybe a wee bit of lost torque, either that or im just used to the acceleration. But to my knowledge all spark plugs/wires and various sensors are all stock. I have only cleaned the MAS wires and replaced a squeeky pulley. K&N filter so i keep that up every 10 k.

    What do yall recomend be done and some preventative maintence?

    Would I notice a difference if I changed plugs and wires?

    if stock, i would do plugs, wires, ( ainti sieze on threads and grease on boots) change ALL the fluids ( rear end< trans, motor, coolent, ), re clean your K and N with the filter charge kit, and get a free scan at auto zone, and the stupid stuff like rotatating tires/ would be a start

    aaaah the priorities of an LSx owner.

    Seems like you're on the right track. It's basically everything you think it should be. Plugs, wires, fluids, belts, hoses, and fuel filter.
