New purchase - general checks and replacements

I bought my altezza a few weeks back and its not performing as I remembered when a mate had one years back.
What should I look out for, do I need to do a full service etc.
So far I've cleaned out the MAF and gone through a cycle of cataclean.

Any advice would be helpful.

The only mods to the car is a LSD diff and none to the engine.

It's the RS200 Z edition.

Cheers.

Check the coil on plugs for the orange ring, radiators are usually quite old and need replacing by now.
Gearbox oil is something that is very often forgotten.

Obviously the usual service with new plugs, oil, filters, etc would help the engine greatly.
