Tune up Parts!

I have a 2001 SH. I have decide it would be fun to change the Cap, Rotar, Spark plugs and cables, but would like to do something nicer than just going to Pep Boys or Auto Zone. Anyone have something they liked or even things you did not? Thanks for your suggestions?

That is just the rotor and not the cap. I bought this one last night! Thanks for your help and advice. I have not really done any car work since I sold my 240Z about 8 years ago. I am looking forward to playing with my SH. :)

I would recommend the MSD wires. I have looking at the Project Car Mag and they always use them, plus they have one of the best track records.

How many miles on your SH? For some reason the manual says not to do a tune up until 120k miles.

Its a 2001. It only has about 78,000. I thought it would be a fun little project to do with my GF's little boy. Kids need to see that everyone can work on Cars if the want.

It's 6 years old. I don't think it'll hurt it.
I need to do a BIG tune up on mine.

I still need to find a new distributor cap. I do not want a cheap one, but this MSD stuff is hard to find for the prelude :(
