im doing this too, what was reccomended the Bosch ones? i think a set is about $50?

I would upgrade the controller/relay to the Stancor as well. I am going to. its generally $45 to $60.

Not much else to do in there unless you want to mess with the injectors too.

Thanks,my main concern was what else should I replace.So what do I ask for when buying the relay?

the only thing near them are the injectors, so i suppose you could pull them and replace the seals. it would be a good time to inspect the injectors too.

here is a link to the stancor relay upgrade. auto parts stores wont have it. this is the best price i found, but search around...

Motorcraft plugs are highly recommended. Stay away from autolite they are known to swell and get stuck. I have a glow plug puller tool for sale. Pm me if interested
