    You could try a can of engine flush. Some here use fresh oil and drain it out again after running the engine a few minutes. As for the oil filter, change that after you clean the engine out. I personally use Purolator filters. Do you plan to use regular oil or synthetic after the oil change?

    As far as tuning up the car, if it's stock, stick with OEM plugs and wires.

    While you are changing the exhaust manifold gaskets it is a good time for headers and plugs. JMHO
