AWESOME!!!! :welcome: to the Gen 3.5 Club...:lol:

EDIT: woah woah woah...before all of this on the list...what powerplant are you running?


1. Flush all fluids. (oil, trans, differential, brake, p/s, coolant)
2. Change fuel filter
3. Change air filter,
4. Change PCV Valve
5. Clean Throttle w/ Seafoam Deep Creep
6. Seafoam a vacuum hose
7. Check brake pads/rotors
8. Check fuses/ bulbs
9. Check Tires
10. Check Dog Bone for damage
11. Check other engine mounts
12. Check axles
13. Check ball joints/tie rod ends/stabilizer links/rsb bushings
14. Clean engine bay/ interior/exterior
15. Buy your favorite Little Tree
16. Put on shades (if you dont have any then buy some)
17. Ride in 1996 Style...

Thats a good place to start :thumbsup:

More like 100whp...:lol:

Then add:
1.Timing Belt
2.Idler/tentioner
3.Water Pump
4.Oil Pump gasket

This takes a bit more tech skills. I would say unless youre a mechanic or have a good understanding of timing then I wouldnt DIY...
