My (stock) cobra has about 87,000 miles on it and I'm not completely sure what I should check/replace. I've had it for about a year and a half and I'm not sure that all the fluids were changed when I bought it from a chevy dealer. What do you guys recommend for plugs, wires, fluids, etc? Thanks in advance.

I should also add that over the next two years the car is going to be changing dramatically (suspension, exhaust, supercharger, etc..)


Here is what I'm thinking so far:

Plugs: Autolite 764 (copper) gapped at .054
Wires: MSD

Clean air filter.
Clean MAF.
New Fuel Filter. (brand?)
Changing the oil this weekend with Castrol GTX 5w-30 and Motocraft oil filter.

Sounds like you've got a good list of tune up things to me. Basically, there aren't many things different when it comes to simple tune up things with the 4 valve cars. If you're expiriencing a lack of power above 3250rpms...... your IMRC butterflys may need cleaned. They probably do anyway with that kind of mileage on them. If your car feels strong, I wouldn't worry about messing with them as it takes some time to get to them, and then clean them, and put it back together. (remove intake etc.)
