If it's just the 'engine' you are looking to tune up, then what's already been mentioned will probably do it, but what about belts, hoses, flush the rad, bleed out the old brake fluid, new pads, rotors, trans fluid, oh my, the list can be endless!!

When someone says to me they want a full tune up i think of plugs,wires,air filter,fuel filter. You could also do a tranny flush and radiator flush but i would call that more maintenance.
