the rules are this, better airflow throgh the engine equals better perf. run a low restriction filter assembly, K&N and others make them, run a free flowing exhaust, do your research, just because it sounds good that doesn't mean it gives any perf gain, u can also fool with the electronics, they may or may not offer a performance chip for your car, u will have to inquire, call Summit racing, they are one of the leaders in the country on perf parts, they sell the best.

Because your car is consuming so much oil, you need to check the level often, so the level won't go down more than one quart. You will get an idea how long you can drive the car before it is down one quart, and should keep the level at the full mark. You should change the oil filter, as it is still collecting contaminants.
Have you checked the spark plugs condition? It seems the oil consumption will result in the plugs being fouled soon . Keep that oil level up, or the result will be a seized engine. Also, I'm guessing the tail pipe shows black residue, another sign of high oil consumption. This is probably why someone sold this car, they didn't want to deal with an expensive repair of an engine rebuild. You are correct, an oil change should be done every 3k miles.

loosen the alternator and push the alternator to-wards the engine,put your new belt on ,fitting around the 3 pulleys once fitted look and see that the belt is in line.If your happy the belt is lined put a small bar between the engine and alternator and force the alternator out towards the front this should tension your belt tighten bolts on alternator.;at the longest point between two pullys in the middle of the belt move belt up and down with fingers if tension is right it should not move more than about 150ml,hope this helps you.adrian

Drive 50miles and it should automatically go off, however if the light reappears then take the car to the dealers where they will diagnos the engine. In addition you may take out the battery and leave it for 5mins as this resets the ECU, but this is a hassle as the alarm can malfunction and the cd codes/ cassete player codes would be needed.
