Exclamation Tune Up? Almost 130k

Just wondering what your guy's opinions would be on what to tune up the car at this many miles? I need to changes the spark plugs for sure and clean my air filter. The car has been feeling just a bit sluggish recently. Here's what I've done recently:

Motor Oil and Filter are OK
Tranny Fluid is OK
Struts and Shocks are OK

Brake fluid, diff fluid, coolant flush, clean your maf, check PCV/IAC valves/ check ball joints, grease your suspension/hinges, fuel filter, power steering flush....you name it, at 130k it needs to be flushed or replaced if you want the car to last.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention the fuel filter was changed less than 6k miles ago. How complicated is it to check the PCV/IAC valves?

Very easy, changing both should take 20 mins at most with basic tools
