what u mean by thorough tune up? basically what i have done to my car is oil and filter change every 3000 miles, put an intake 6 month ago, and recently timing belt, water pump and tensor 3 month ago, and spark plug wires and spark plugs like 1 year. my car has currently 183,000 miles on a stock engine but intake 2inch pipes and free flow muffler.
