    Try the tune-up first, clean the MAF, and if that doesn't work I would suggest taking it to a shop and having it officially diagnosed before you start throwing parts at it that it doesn't need.

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    The only thing that came up on the diagnostic were the catylitic convertors. I am going to try and clean the MAF first. If that doesnt work then I will go for the plugs and wires.

    they screwed up. If need be, try another shop/dealership. Tell them everything you've done to try to fix it and hopefully that lead them in the right direction.

    I cleaned the MAF this morning. I took it out and it ran a 13.77 and 13.78 at 107mph. I'm on the road to recovery. I am going to put new plugs and wires on it this afternoon. Any particular plug wires I should try?
