It seems like the d isnt what she used to be. I want to know be sides oil change,spark plugs. What i should do to bring her back i was thinking of new wires, I got a new rotor just trying to get the dist cap off. Any ideas the only real engine mod is fastman tb and intake.

Can you be a bit more specific? What symptoms are you observing?

regular wear and tear will rub horsepower. what do you expect from an 8 year old vehicle. all i can advice is do the regular maintanance on schedule. if you are not happy with the power you can always get it rebuilt or get an engine build by the fastman. good luck

just take off your tb, and give it a good cleaning with some brake clean. take a tooth brush and clear out all the passageways in the throttle body. make sure you take out the IAC and tps before you do this. it should help. make sure your plugs are gapped properly and make sure you have a new cap/rotor. wires are also probably a good choice if you haven't done so in the past 3 years.

do a intake service, ive got the kits, im sure jiffy lube will do the induction service for 30 or so, that will burn off carbon like hell! ive run 2 bottles of sea foam through my intake manifold and that helped allot

I would also have the exhaust checked out to make sure that there aren't any obstructions and that she's breathing well. Sometimes a catalytic converter being slightly clogged will do the same thing.
