I'm going to be doing the same thing this weekend.

I'm doing pretty much every seal, possibly the plenum gasket, new water pump and associated hoses. Upgrading the battery cables, new radiator, possibly an efan.

Doing all the work with the engine out is a lot easier and faster. I'd also give the engine bay a good cleaning.

The hughes or the ebay plenum plate this guy makes. The huges is a complete kit. The plenum plate and bolts from ebay you will have to buy stuff separately but you can choose what gaskets you want to use. Both are great options.
