Tune up news

So, got around to half of my first tune up since I bought her 2 months ago. Got the K&N cleaned, Seafoam in the gas tank, oil, and intake, and put in new plugs and wires. Oil change will happen after I let the Seafoam work a bit.

Anyway, it seems the plugs and wires were the originals! 100k on them as well. I thought she ran well before, but wow what a difference! I am very happy. FYI, the old plugs looked like they had been burning evenly, with no fouling, but the gap had grown about .020 on each. She starts better, idles smoother, and has more power than before.

98 V6 with standard trans.
