OK I'll start this off. lol.........any Iridium Plug, I like Champion. a good oil filter Mobil1 or High end Fram will do. Autozone Gold spark plug wires or Bosch. Get a Fram air filter and change it when needed. If you found this web site you can check your own prices on line.

I'm a firm believer in factory parts. I've had issues with Bosch plugs, Champion plugs, wires, seen cheap fuel filters come apart inside the fuel lines, etc.
I would shop Rockauto and get AC Delco wires and the platinum or double platinum plugs from them. That's just me though- never had an issue with AC parts.

What all is generally considered in a tune up? Oil change, new plugs, new wires, ???

NGK TR55 or TR5 spark plugs...gapped to .050 using a gap tool yourself......$17.00
((wires only need changing if they are damaged. $36.00 Advance Auto or Pepboys wires are good for any LSx engine up to 650 RWHP. There are NO aftermarket wires that will give you ANY performance gains AT ALL unless you're starting to make power beyond 650 RWHP.))
Air filter.....paper filter only.....((no garbage K&N))......$10.00
Oil change.........$15.00 regular oil and Purolator filter. (((You can completely throw money in the trash and use synthetic oil, thats up to you.)))
Partial coolant flush........just drain the radiator and refill it with 80% water / 20% coolant. If its dirty as hell, do a complete flush.
THATS IT,,,,,thats a tune up on an LSx engine. Cheap and easy.
