I changed the plugs about 1k ago and the air filter was clean.

----------

I don't know what else I could do to tell the truth. Old plugs had bout .065 gap and so I gapped new to .045 I think. Just bought a sunpro oil pressure gauge and pressure switch I'll plumb into a 1/4" tee off the block hole.

Sorry for all the msg., but I don't know how to nav this forum that well. I like the blackout wheels you got. I put on some Cragar soft8's a few weeks ago.

My 2004 Level II just rolled over to 31,000 miles and I decided to replace the air filter, fuel filter, plugs and wires. Before replacement I was averaging 250-260 miles until the gas light would come on. Now I am averaging 275-290.

I'm certainly not complaining!

I just replaced mine. I dont do it as often as I should but ive done it probably about every 15-30,000. This time I noticed it felt like it was restricted and thats why I replaced t.
