Don't forget a lot of patience with the last spark plug near the firewall on the passenger side!!!

I also own a 98. After I did those things, it did run smoother, but I was amazed at the difference reprogramming the computer using an SCT tuner made. I lost the slight hesitation in the vehicle when accelerating, it idled stronger and seemed to run better.
