4th gen tune up question

I installed new ngk iridium spark plugs/bosch wires/and distributor cap/rotor all from autozone.

Does this matter. Should I have gotten them from Honda instead?

Also the fuel filter I heard is supposed to be lifetime so I brought the one I bought back. Should I change that too?

No, the tune up parts you bought are pretty good; you're being smart and saving some money b/c at Honda, they would've charged you twice the price you paid at Autozone.
As for the fuel filter, OEM or aftermarket will do the trick. It's a good idea to change it if you haven't already.

Not really, but MSD's thick red wires do give the nice placebo effect to its owners

NGK are great, bosch wires are good not the best but still good, autozone cap and rotor are ok i have got plenty of them for a lot of car then seem to wear down sooner then a more expensive ones but will be fine. I have no idea about the fuel filter but would get one anyway if it was me. Honda would have charged way to much and you would be have about the same stuff in ur car.

alright cool thanks for the responses. I'll get a new filter. My car is still idling a little rough so I know I have had to miss something. I want to get a new 02 sensor but I figured I might as well wait until I get a new exhaust to buy a new sensor. Make sense?
