Just Hit 60K miles...Proactive Maintenance Suggestions?
 
So I've had my daytona for a month now and love it more everyday. Cannot wait for some warmer weather here in CT so I can do some mods.

Flipped 60K yesterday and was thinking about any proactive maintenance that I can do..as in..replace something that isn't necessarily an issue yet but it's a good idea...thoughts?

Things that come to mind...

- spark plugs
- battery
- air filters

I a total rookie under the hood so any comments are welcomed here. I don't mind spending money to be proactive with items that make sense.

Thanks in advance.

The EGR valve gave me issues at about 125k i think on the same truck. From what i read quite a few other people too. That might be something to look into.
