Its time for spring tune up. I have an 89 s10 4.3 4x4. I was
wondering if there was any real benefit from performance plugs, wires,
coil on a stock engine. I understand the theory behind it. But I don't
know if they provide enough of a noticeable improvement over OEM
equipment to justify the extra money. My s10 runs good however lately
(past month) it seems to be a bit sluggish and bogs down. It rides
fine but when I step on the gas to accelerate and pass, or climb a
hill it feels like my truck is bogging down, the engine gets nice and
loud but I feel like I'm actually slowing down. Its between the 35-45
mph range. Any ideas? things I have replaced recently.
Coil (OEM from parts store)
Plugs (AC delco from parts store)
Wires (7mm OEM from parts store)
Its been about 20 months since I have replaced all of these items
except for the EGR (about a month ago). I am figuring the sensors
should be ok and It is just time for a tune up. So back to my original
question should I go with the OEM parts or will I see any benefit from
more expensive parts? Any other suggestions as to what I should look

No, it's a good thing...
Here's your sign..
Besides the obvious things like "damn, it won't run without gas", you have
factors like sucking up the last bit of crud and dirt in the bottom of the tank
and running it through the fuel system and possibly burning out the fuel pump,
if it's mounted in the tank to keep cool.. (scary thought)

Ok, I guess I deserved that one. But that was my question. Should I
replace my fuel filter again? Also I have heard that a clogged cat
converter can cause problems as well. Is there a way to tell without
just dropping 300 to have it replaced?
