Awesome, thanks for the reply that's exactly what I was looking for. I can understand the underpowered comment, I felt like it it would have more pick up to it but it doesn't bother me. As far as all the questions on maintanence I'm not sure. The first thing I'm doing this weekend is doing a complete tune up (iridium spark plugs, all filters, change oil ect.) then I'll go from there. I know the previous owner put a brand new radiator in it, an I want to say a new water pump as well. I'm guessing I should replace the timing belt as well when I do the tune up? Thanks again for the post really helps out.

Edit: also, just did a quick google search for aftermarket stuff for fun on my lunch break. I came across a chip (gfchips) that advertises 60hp ,30ft torque and 4-7 mpg increase. Only for $70. Sounds like bull****. Any opinions?
