If it's running well, then that's pretty much it!

As for plugs, from what I've read on here either oem or autolite! That's whats recommended! I just got 8 oem ones!

Fuel filter.. can of seafoam in the tank. Air filter. Along with cleaning the MAF mine as well clean the throttle body and the intake plenum.

That depends. Im a parts replacer and you can do around a grand in parts replacement if your into that sort of thing, I did it gradually over 2 years

Without data logging to really pin down specific stuff, i basically went down the list on rockauto,
plugs, coils, ultra sonic cleaned fuel injectors, upstream oxygen sensors, the fuel pump itself(mine was old & weak), throttle positions sensors(1 on the pedal for 2005+ models, 1 on throttle body), fuel filter, fuel pressure sensor, cam position sensor, MAF( HITACHI MAF0012 on rockauto for 40 bucks), new EGR, "dry" air filter from AEM

Remember if your car was flex fuel or not it uses different plugs. I believe slightly different gap and 1 heat range cooler. It sounds like if your not running flex you'll be fine, just an fyi in case you ever do.
