Default 200,000 Mile mark

I bought a 2003 Accord V6 EX just about a year ago with 184,000. I'm just about to 200,000 now and I was wondering what should I be doing for preventative maintenance. I have all the car's maintenance records; it got a timing belt / water pump done at about 100,000.

So I have about $1,000 to work with; I'm thinking about doing the timing belt water pump kit again, I've also got all new EBC brake pads and two new EBC rotors for the front that I'm going to be installing soon. What else is important right now? Spark plugs? Tranny fluid? Suspension?

Also where is a good place to get the timing belt water pump kit?

What are you guys using for engine oil? Do I really need to use the Honda Genuine? Just to play it safe I've been using Honda Genuine in combination with the Lucas Oil Stabilizer. I also use the Lucas Upper Cylinder stuff with every fill-up.

Thanks

What I'd do - TB / H2O pump, all the fluids (tranny - yes; radiator, brake, power steering maybe if can see they need it),
inspect the belts. I let my plugs and wires go long time


also interested in any more details you have about Lucas added to oil,
my 'new car' (203,000) is using 1 qt/2200 miles and wondering what to do, if anything.
