I decided to keep mine, I went and put the ecu in it today to save me a little money, and hopefully it should be up and running by tomorrow

Mark when you get plugs make sure they are the same length as the ones in it, I had a hell of a time finding the right ones the first time I did mine.

after I paint some panels of my bike gold tomorrow, I'm gonna check my spark plugs and see what I have. I haven't ever done it in my possession yet, and I actually fear they may be bosch platinums... which may be why I can only go 89 tops.... lol. will replace with ngk v powers :)

pick yourself up an svt service manual.... and I'd use 5w 30 but hey it doesn't really matter, the other will be fine.

I don't see the need for cleaning tb though. maf will be worth it if its dirty.

do you have record of your timing belt water pump change? remember now that svt is an interference motor :)
