None of that stuff will hurt, I'd do the O2 and pcv valve too.

yeah it drives fine though does have issues here and there, like currently have a rattle when I floor it from idle, think it the torque converter bolts are loose since it didn't do it before I removed it from trains etc and chain feels nice and tight,

other thing it has is the both front inner wall of tyres are scrubbing and loosing heaps of tread in those spots, think it tie-end rod or chamber etc,

brakes need replacing, very very soon,

going through heaps of fuel has you know etc.

oh and trans takes a bit to engage into drive like the tail shaft will just spin when revving and then throws you back a little when it does engage, only does this when doing it all quickly and fast

Umm Thats sounds like your auto needs a service. I think. If that was happening on a XE thats what I would advice you to do.
Well I am sure you will get it the way you want in time mate. I was thinking getting for to fully service and tune mine after the roadworthy its quoted at around $300. but thats a full sevice as in motor oil change and auto as well plugs & leads ect. I think it be best to get them to do it coz mine is on LPGas as well and then I will do it after that. finely finished my rear bumper today hopefuly put it on tomorrow if its fine :D
