    if you don't have a big stereo you should be OK, the charging system will be slowed down but with minimal draw you should be good. Even if you decide to go with a big sound system, you could get a alt off of a 94 95 and do the swap.

    The pulleys is worth the 80 bucks they cost, you can expect and additional 8 to 10 hp at the wheels.

    throw some Chevron Techron Concentrate Plus Fuel System Cleaner in the tank to clean the injectors out. Make sure you get the concetrate and not the cheaper stuff. Supposed to be the best injector cleaner you can get and i did notice a difference.

    yea that stuff rocks actually...most things you don't notice a difference but that techron fuel injector cleaner and if you'd never used a fuel system treatment until now you'll notice a change I was surprised.....gained like 30 hp........well maybe not but it ran smoother and idled more consistently

    Tranny fluid (and filter for auto), differential fluid and gasket, rotate your new tires with the front if the fronts havent been rotated in 3000 miles . Check tire pressure. When engine is cold,check oil level in case of leaks. Check head gaskets for leaks. Check exhaust system for leaks. Take a leak .

    :D
     
  10. how many miles are on it?

    Powersteering Flush, Brake Fluid Flush, New Pads, Rear Diff. Flush, K&N air filter
     
  12. You don't need to do any of the above things unless you are near the 150k mark

    the car has 44k i did most of the stuff already. pads are good,surprisingly, and already has a k&n panel filter.the rear im a wait till i get some gears and tranny fluid till i need a new clutch.
     
  14. everything should be fine... If your hard on it change the fluids... the spark plugs should be fine and everything else...
     
  15. oh... and IMPO... any additives are bad... I would never use seafoam...

    and heres why...

    If I started up my car and white smoke poured out of the exhaust... I would not be happy...
