Exclamation so i need a tune up... and suggestions

if anyone knows or does tune ups for cheap, please hit me up. i have not had a tune up yet and im at 132K right now.
plus, if anyone has an extra spedometer, hit me up as well. it keeps going down to 0, then going straight back up to 75. lol. thats when i have noticed it at least.

I was also wondering if i should swap out my ZTEC engine for a different engine. idk much about engines really and i just dont really like the engine. it has no power. Got my ass handed to me against an Integra today, granted his Integra was decked out with a cat back exhaust, coilovers and air intake. haha.

please read and give me feedback. thank you.

I can help you do a tune up.

You'll want;
oil
plugs
plug wires
acc belt
timing belt
air filter
and the tennsioners for the timing belt

All together about 250 worth of stuff.


As for the Speedo doing that there is a reason for it. A new cluster wont fix the problem. Post a thread in the tech chat area and Im sure someone will know whats going on.
