Ok well im just asking for general tips for tune ups, what spark plugs work teh best? NGK, BOSCH etc? Wires same thing, what brake pads do you use? I use ceramics but thinking about switching brands.

List everything you replace on a MAJOR tune up, im about due for one in the next 20k miles maybe less. I heard you are supose to replace the PCV Breather Filter, ive never even done that lol.

BOSCH ignition product is a no no for japanese cars... stick with NGK or Denso if possible

Make sure your belts are good. You wouldn't want your timing belt to go out while driving. You suppose to change it every 60-75K. might as well change your water pump too if your getting your timing belt replaced.

plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, distributor cap, rotor button, and worn belts. the plug wires last a long time so changing them out with every tune up is not necessary. plus they're like $60. but if you do change them go with ngk or maybe omnispark.

Make sure you get that dialectric greas to go on your sparkplug/plugwire ends so they don't seize together. Busted two of my hundred somethin dollar plugs like that. Also run a can of Seafoam thru the motor every so often.

It's an engine cleaner. Get it at your local parts store, even saw it at Walmart once-

This stuff is awesome...treated all 5 of my vehicles...even put it in my boat...It's hiliarious to watch if you have a car that has 60k miles or more and didn't use synthetic oil....it will smoke like the world is on fire! It definetly increases the performance/running of the vehicle.
