plugs and wires at 210k

well my truck stared to miss and lag today, had no power anywhere then i got a CEL. I picked up new wires and plugs and put them in. such a pain when you have to use a small flathead screwdriver to scrape the mud outa the plug holes to get a socket in there. lol But man what a difference!!

my truck has never had so much power!! haha

I'm sure that made a hell of a difference. It made a noticable difference on my 60k mile 4.0. The gap on the plugs I pulled out were about .080.
