Proud new owner of a 96 AE101 5spd with 4A-FE :D Great commuter car, economical without being a bore to drive. Got it with 108K on it and it's got about 110 now. As the subject suggests, I'm looking to give it a tune up for economy and throttle response. Oil change is coming soon and along with it:

- K&N replacement air filter,
- spark plugs (there's been a lot of debate on this - can anyone recommend one? Platinums arent the best for economy AFAIK)

and most likely a fuel filter and maybe wheel balancing as well when I get new tires. Some people also recommend dist. rotor and cap replacement... nessecary in this case?

I'm getting 31-34 mpg depending on how I drive (gotta lay off the high revs and quick shifts damnit :p: ), looking to push that to mid to high 30's or beyond, depending on what I can do with it.

Just get everything OEM from toyota. Those were designed with economy in mind. But that wont really increase throttle response, since increasing on that area would have a negative effect on economy.
