This is the infamous EJ25D - Internal Head Gasket blowing machine.
Do keep your coolant fresh and oil changes frequent.
Do Watch the temp gauge if it EVER goes above that "just below half-way" point, the HG is likely about to give it up.
Do STOP driving if it even looks like it's overheating, tow it home and fix it immediately. Rod bearings hate overheating and coolant...rods get 'ejected'.
Do Keep your valves adjusted (nasty shims) or you'll end up w/a burnt valve, and @ 100K your timing belt is due.
Do clean your MAF - w/the proper spray.
Do Not get a K&N - oily filter isn't good for the MAF - and you already have a CAI, so as stated above - no intake needed- unless you're into the noise.
@ $100 x 4 for the cams, Delta has options....
Do not let anyone else drive your car, either.
