i would be interested in the "Computer Performance re-programing on Dyno with JMM Flash tuner"

Thought the only decent tuning you do is with SCT device??, none the less if its a full custom tune that can be at least 1200bux so doesnt seem too bad by the sounds of it??

The spark plugs JMM offer are autolite 985's. Except JMM charge rediculous amounts of money for them.
They are around the $5 each delivered from the states. $3500 does sound a bit dear though. Do you feel confident enough to do the exhaust yourself? There are plenty of 2.5" mandrel bent systems on ebay for pretty cheap. You could just get them to do the extractors and cat and save some coin.

My mate got a 1.5 grand exhaust for his SV6...sounds really really good (it shrieks like some kind of supercar when it's near the redline, hard to describe but it's like nothing else) and is perfectly quiet when cruising on the highway. 3.5 grand is a f**k lot though...I would put that money towards an exhaust, cam, and a J3 chip to tune it, and perhaps a bit of head work if there's enough left over. But hey, it's your money, go for it if you want.

I don't think $3500 is to much? For a full exhaust system (extractors, high flow cat and catcack) you're looking at $1200 - $1600, spark plugs $60 - $100, CAI $300 - $600, then a custom tune and flash box $1000 - $1600. So all up at the max price you're looking at $3900 that's for people who don't want to shop around for the best prices etc so he's getting basically everything you can do to an N/A before going into big $$$ on cams and tuning ect. Another good thing is diff gears. They'll get you off the mark a lot quicker
