Here are some things I can think of:
Timing belt including the water pump and pretty much everything behind the timing belt; fuel pump; drain the brake fluid and replace it with new fluid; air filter; get your injectors cleaned. That's all I can think of, I'me sure you're gonna get a whole lot more from others on the website.

CHILLZ_VTEC is on a distinguished road
yeah...change your belts, brake fluid, clutch fluid, or tranny fluid, power steering fluid...I would reccomend a type of fuel system cleaning(Z-max is good), clean the T.B., and I would reccomend NGK Iridium plugs and Magnecor wires(just cuz thats what i have)....

Get a manual tensioner while you're at it. They're a little more dependable than the autos.
