Default tuneup suggestions.

I recently bought a 98 ram 1500 sport with the 360. It runs great with 110k. And I'm averaging about 11.5mpg with 3.92 gears and 305 toyos. It's due for a tuneup. I figured the usual plugs, wires, cap, rotor, pcv. Are the 360s picky to a particular brand like GM is to ac delco? What runs the best on these? I have a k&n fipk on order. And in the near future have plans for headers, flowmaster super 44 with single exhaust for now, and sct tuner. Is there any inexpensive mods besides what I'm planning to get a little more umph outta the 360 as well as some better mpg?

The headers should make a noticable difference. You might try some under drive pulleys as well. Outside of that and the the things you've mentioned, there's not a lot left to do without going inside the engine.

Napas Echlin line is good stuff that won't break the bank. I'd go with Champion or NGK plugs.

i heard the NGK's are good in the magnums. if you are putting a flowmaster on this bad boy the origional 40 series sounds AMAZING on the 5.9's my brother has one on his 98 with single in and single out and i love it. i put a super 44 on mine ONLY because i wanted to try something different but i would have rather got the 40 i just like loud and abnoxious.
