Doing IMS. What else should I do while I'm in there?

I'm going to be doing the IMS in a few weeks. While I'm in there, I'm also doing:

RMS
Luc Clutch kit
dual mass Flywheel
Manzo Exhaust/TopSpeed test pipes
AOS
serpentine belt
spark plugs

Is there anything else I should do while I'm in there?

Thanks
Tony

You may need a new MAF and new oxygen sensors.

While you are doing spark plugs, you may want to replace the spark plug tubes if you have any oil leaking from them. Also, get some clutch spline grease for the transmission input shaft and inspect your CV joint boots. If you have torn boots, you may want to order new boots and associated parts while the tranny is out.

It's an 03 so we don't have oil tubes. I like your thinking though.

Make sure you replace the bearings associated with the clutch and the clutch fork pivot point tends to fail (non metallic sphere beaks off) so you might replace it as well. You'll also be in a position to easily change your transmission oil. I missed that one and now I'll be doing it under the car. Ugh!

It would be worth inspecting the oil fill tube and replacing if necessary.

Good time to check / change axle boots. Do you need the IMS bearing tool?

Water pump. While not at the same end of the engine, since you are doing the belt....

Also check all idler pulleys.
