I carry way too much crap around and I'm friends with the owner of JR's and he recomended this box. Besides, review on StealthBox are very good.

I don't know why everyone is saying do wires. There are no wires on the car, its all COP. A tuneup would consist of oil/filter change, fuel filter, air filter (New or Cleaned), plugs, new transmission fluid and rear end fluid, SEAFOAM!!!

COP is coil on plug, its what you have. They are the best thing ford did with these cars. They almost never go bad and more incredibly efficient. If you don't want to replace them, expect to dish out ALOT of money. Seafoam is a motor treatment that you suck through a vacuum line and it cleans out the motor of carbon buildup and that kind of crud. Its available at a number of auto stores and is about 5 bucks. Just follow the directions.

Thats why i said the 'boots'. I think when i bought plugs and 'boots' it was 180 total. Sonsabitches are expensive. Look into some Lucas too. Its pretty much the same as seafoam, you add it when you do an oil change.
