Over $6000 for some aluminum piece of trash with 320hp? For that kind of money he could go to www.gmpartsdirect.com and get a big block with nearly 500hp for $6600.

What else can you do?

All those parts are real cheap at Autozone but you will get hosed on the plugs if you don't do them yourself
Got that right! The first time I had my plugs changed, I was expecting to pay about $120. I got the bill and it was nearly $350! That's when I decided to do them myself, despite the hassle I wanted to save myself.

$350

Its times like this, that I'm happy I do all my own work. I just tuned up the truck last week (with my brother's discount at the parts store )

Plugs: $48 if you use Delco platinums, or $12 for NGK TR-55s.

Wires: $40(?) for a cheap OEM set, or $80-$90 for a good set (recommended)

Fuel filter: $9

PCV valve: $5

Air filter: $15(?) for a paper filter, or $40 for a K&N replacement

Oil change: $20-$30 for oil, $5 for a filter

You could also do a transmission flush/fill (if automatic), coolant system flush/fill, power steering fluid flush/fill, etc. You can do everything yourself...like everyone else mentioned, it'll be a lot cheaper that way.
