Ok, you have too many cars listed in your sig, and 600 bucks is way too much money for a tuneup, even on all of them at the same time.

There are no 'tuneup kits'. You buy the components seperately.

A good wratchet set, screwdrivers, and vice grips can get you the basic tuneup done.

Im not sure what you are asking, but if looking for suggested parts to change during a tune up, I would suggest the following:

*Plugs
*Wires
*PCV Valve (Save the O-Ring)
*Air Filter
*Fuel Filter
*coolent temp sensor
*Check/Test Thermo Stat
*Check/Test Coolent
*Oil Change
*Oil Filter
*Supercharger oil (if applicable)
*Check Tranny fluid
*Tranny Filter
*Test Charging system
*Check/Replace all belts and hoses

This is a good start, there are probably others that I have missed.
