tune up suggestion

Sup broskis, my 5th gen SH just rolled around 106k and feels kinda sluggish so im thinking of a full tune up, that consists of the following.

Air Filter(KN drop in)
Fuel Filter(brand?)
plugs/wires(ngk)
Cap/rotor(brand?)
pcv valve(brand?)
tranny fluids,brake fluid, atts fluid, power steering fluid, coolant.

Do you guys have suggestions for what brands to go with for the ones i havent listed? And also anything else I should do? Timing belt was done btw so that is not necessary.

Thanks!

Re: tune up suggestion

Seaform your ride before changing your plugs and oil. Makes all the difference.

Re: tune up suggestion

ATTS only use HONDA ATF
Transmission fluid only use HONDA MTF
Power Steering only use HONDA Power steering fluid
Brake fluid just use some DOT 3/4 brake fluid
Just put in some good Coolant and you will be good

I would just go with the Autozone fuel filter, and the PCV valve doesn't really matter lol they are like $10

Re: tune up suggestion

Fuel Filter - I'd go OEM.

Cap/Rotor -I'd go OEM there also.

PCV Valve - Really doesn't matter, just grab one at Autozone or something.

Everything else you got rite (or Keeghan told you correctly).

Re: tune up suggestion

All OEM FTW! You can also use regular motor oil for the tranny instead of honda mtf.

Yes, you CAN, but I wouldn't. I did it one time with my last Prelude and eventually the tranny started to grind and got a little hard to shift. Switched back to Honda/Acura MTF and the problem went away. Honda MTF is a little pricier but 100% worth it.

Ah well so far I have no problems with it at all. If I do experience any problems I will definitely switch to the Honda MTF but until then...yea lol.

Edit: Just did a bit of research and Honda MTF takes the cake. Motor oil is what they use to use before MTf came out and is now just a temp solution.

Re: tune up suggestion

Go with NGK or DENSO spark plugs, an OEM fuel filter really isn't neccessary, but definitely go with HONDA spec. fluids in trans and power steering.
