    What else should i do?

    IN a couple of weeks i am having my lifters and VSS changed out. Since the motor is gonna be torn open and all that fun. Is there anything else i should look at replacing while i am at it?
    Your 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL is one of 4310 that received VIN numbers. Based on the order of the serial numbers, your car was the 2685th out of the 4310 that were made that year.

    All the timing stuff was done at the 120k. Didnt think about cam seals though.

    Ok. I'd personally replace the timing belt tensioner, I had one fail at 150k. No damage, but it was still shot.

    Agree'd, Tensioner are something that shouldn't be overlooked even if under the alotted time period. For the price of a belt and tensioner there's a lot of weight lifted off your shoulders when it comes to a "what if they go?" ~$300 is much less than the average $2,500 for a new engine!

    A new set of plugs wouldn't hurt either.
