Well I got home monday and decided to jump right in. Went to Autozone and bought a new water pump, thermostat and gasket, 2 gallons of coolant, 6 quarts of oil and a filter. Still need to buy a belt and spark plugs

Made a little mess.






Had some cleaning todo..

Got my Puck stop extensions done yesterday.. Thankfully work was slow so I was able to use the lift instead of doing it on the floor at my house

New headlights! I rode up with my buddy to 4x4 of Easley and couldn't leave without them. They are Hella Vision Plus H4s. So far I am pleased but cant wait till it gets dark to really test them out.

Well had some misfiring and ignition problems so replaced the spark plugs and installed a new coil. I had heard a lot about the E3 spark plugs and had put them in a a lot of cars at the shop I work at so I decided to give them a try myself.

What brand coil? How much all that set you back?

It is a BWD coil from advance auto parts. Only one I could fine close by. I paid $140 for every thing.

So does it run like crap with those E3s? I hear it's a no-no putting those into these 4.0s, so I'm really curious, especially after replacing that other stuff too.
