Plugs (Platinum or Bosch not recommended), Wires (prefer Napa Belden, etc) PCV valve, air filter, front O2 sensor, fuel filter. Belt (if not replaced yet).

No, you'll be fine with Delco platinums. You're not supercharged. It'* the Bosch BRAND that'* bad in our cars, and anything platinum for supercharged applications.

Consider upgrading to a K&N air filter if you can afford it.

Hmmmm....no idea in Canadian. Cost me around $60 US for the plugs and wires if I remember right. I am sure some of your fellow Canucks will chime in soon.
And, oh yeah, have never boughten an 02 Sensor so no idea there, sorry.

Can't go wrong with AC Delco parts, I run Delco plugs in my GN and have NEVER had a problem.
