    Runs a bit smoother it seems, The top electrode looked like it was wedge shaped, thin, and tan colored.

    On all of them? It was definitely time to change those, according to your description.

    yep every single one of the plugs looked like that. So now I need the timing belt, the up-pipe and then i can try to get or find a stage 1 tune to try and wake this up a little. I Just dont know where to get the tune or how to do it. I know Cobb is a good place but 600 bucks for a tuner is crazy expensive.

    Look into open source with the Tactrix cable. MUCH cheaper option than the AccessPort (only $169 through Tactrix), though it comes with a bit of a learning curve. There are tuning shops who sell maps for them (XPT Comes to mind) and other e-tuners who can help you out as well. All at prices that come out to less than half of what you'd spend for an AccessPort.

    This must have taken the place of the cable Tactrix Openport 2.0

    Yeah, the 2.0 cable is for newer vehicles, of course it's backwards compatible with older vehicles as well. The 1.3U cable would also work for you (EvoScan OpenPort 1.3U interface cable for Mitsubishi and Subaru Drive-by-Wire, Tactrix OpenPort Cables, TAC-OpenPort1.3U - Tuner Tools, the inside line). My tuner actually recommended I get the older cable because they're sturdier. He says the plug on the 2.0 breaks frequently.
