Civic VX Tune Up? Need Input

I want to do a full tune up on my Civic VX. So that means:

-intake filter
-spark plugs
-plug wires
-fuel filter
-distributor cap
-distributor rotor
-pcv

I'm looking to get something like this.

But does anybody have a link for a package for the VX? I've always ran aftermarket stuff and have never once had an issue. OEM is great, but I'm a cheap ***

Good call! Looks as though my valve cover gasket is leaking too so I think I might just dive in and do the lash adjustment.

Does anybody have a good write up for adjusting that?

clean out the egr system..
also, since you have a civic, you might want to replace the rear main seal on the engine and replace the input shaft bearing on the transmission. This is assuming you want to get down and dirty with this vehicle. If you join honda-tech, they'll have a few other suggestions for civics on problems that should be fixed before they become real problems.
