1996 mustang Gt 4.6

I'm going to replace the head gaskets on my 1996 Mustang GT 4.6. I know is going to be a pain. Just wanted to know if there are any other things I should be replacing while doing all of that work.

All the other gasket like intake, valve covers, etc. Also change the oil right after you are done..I wouldn't even start it without doing that.

Since it will all be taken apart, it would be a very opportune time to do timing chain guides and tensioners.

I do a pi swap with cams and slide some headers in there.
