General Maintenance

Ok, I have a 2000 focus SE SPI 5sp with about 53K on it. It gets used mainly as a college commuter car to keep the miles off my 03 cobra. I want to get it running good before I head back to school, but have a few questions. I plan on changing the oil with synthetic oil, new plugs, new wires, new air filter, fuel system cleaner and a few more coats of zanio. What plugs are you running, and is it the stock gap? I wanted to put a drop in K&N filter in, but cannot find the part number off of their website; do they make one for the SPI? If not what is a good filter to go with? Is there any other thing I need to be worried about or that should be replaced after 53K?

i dont know bout spark plugs, but your manual (if you got one) should have all the info you need about recommended maintence. I have this nice little book that tells me exactlly what is suppsed to be done and when, very handy.
