So seeing as I've started amassing parts for the winter to install on El Supro, I figured doing a full tune up wouldn't be half as bad of an idea. So this is what I've planned on doing thus far:
Obvious Oil Change + Filter
Maybe coil packs
So the point to this thread, I need help in picking some parts / fluids.
For the tranny & diff I was going to try Redline's series of products (MT-90 for the tranny and Heavy shock proof for the diff) I've normally used Royal Purple on my Skyline but I've been told that Redline offers some nice products as well.
For oil, I've always used Castrol Edge in these babies with a K&N oil filter (just because they're easier to put on and take off =])
For airfilters, I'm trying to keep my engine as stock as possible, so I'd like to retain the stock airbox. However, that doesn't mean I can't find a sick drop in filter.
I've heard TRD, HKS and and K&N makes a decent filter for these. Anyone have or tried any of the above?
NOW HERE is where i need some help. Spark Plugs... In the past, I've always gone with NGK iridiums for any car I've owned. However, a customer who brought in a R33 RB25 GTS Skyline to my shop last week complained his car did not run right after he changed his plugs. They were the NGK's and yes they were properly gapped. I replaced them with Bosch (they were on hand) platinum tipped plugs and the car ran fine. I'm just concerned about putting in *wrong* plus so to speak.
Can you tell I'm not too experienced with the 1J's yet? lol
So any input you guys can give me would be a big help. My suspension techniques swaybars, BiC metal end links, Cusco STB's and new shifter bushing kit have arrived, I'll be sure to keep you all posted with updates on my beast =]
