Yes there is a k&n drop in...i will get the part number for you...my car came with one from singapore.

I told you already get NGK irridium IX plugs heat range 6

The coil pack held in with 4 screws...unscrew them and lift off...no magic. Refer to the service manual if unsure.

Get any good throttle body cleaner....i guess just ask at the parts place.

Gear oil...the amsoil is the perfect match...75-90 GL4 spec....other brands give you the 75-90 but in a GL5 spec....make sure and get the GL4....i would just go with the amsoil, cant go wrong.

Belts....only option is to go to lifestyle and get them....none after market afik...

Change the radiator cap, throw a redline fuel cleaner in the gas and i would also suggest changing the thermostat to be safe.

Correcto.

If the Ignis's gearbox is anything like the Swift Sport, stick to a GL4 gear oil.

While GL5's work, they're intended mainly for hypoid gear sets, as found in AWD cars. However, there are some trains of thought (Redline had a writeup about this) whereby some of the additives in GL5 oils can cuase excessive wear to softer synchro metals over time.

GL4's are a bit older in tech, and don't have those additives. But that should help with longevity!

In fact, the Swift Sport's manual said IIRC, 75W90 GL4 fluid or equivalent (almost like they were harping on the GL4 point).

I used Amsoil's GL4 fluid (Manual Transaxle Gear Lube) in the SSS with great success. The new owner of the car uses Redline MT90, also a 75W90 GL4 fluid, and has no complaints. If it's any help, the MT90 is alot cheaper and should work just as well.

Hope that helps some.

I think the reason why the amsoil is sooo much more expensive alpha is because its 100% synthetic....is the redline ?

Amsoil and Redline are among the few truly synthetic oils.
Both great stuff in my opinion.

Just to clarify, GL5 is not an upgrade to GL4.
As always, use what your owner's manual recommends, which is 75W90 GL4.
The additives in GL5 oil can and will cause corrosion of the yellow metals in the synchros.
For more information on GL4 and GL5, see the second post in the link in my signature.

Well, when it comes to engine oils, both Redline and Amsoil uses similar Group 4 base oils IIRC.

So I'd say both would be truly synth. Assuming both work well (some /boxes can be picky), then the differences may just be purely academic!

i myself have used the amsoil in my previous vehicle (ck lancer with 4g15DOHC on a 4g92 box)
no complaints at all
in fact... i used to have to double clutch into reverse to get he gear to go in smoothly, after using the amsoil this problem went away...

i was just asking cuz i know lifestyle uses other fluids; our Grand Vitara went for its 50K service about a month ago and the amount of fluid they change :shock: :shock:
tranny: some weird brand
transfer case: something else
rear diff: something else

i, personally, am a bit skeptical about LSM's choice of fluids starting from the engine oil...

SOrry eh, but that's kinda like stating the obvious. I've hardly come across any instance where iridium plugs work badly.

Jus' saying :lol:

Actually, there was mention that the GV is pretty plug sensitive.. and that some plugs perform quite poorly.

Most of the auto parts stores I go to don't stock them.. but then again, I don't shop for 'performance' parts that often..

Once the gap and heat range are maintained constant (same as stock), then technicaly a platinum, iriduim, silver, or copper tip make minimal difference with anything IMHO otherthan longevity.

BUt that's another topic for another time/thread.
