all right i know this has been asked alot but im havin trouble findin the old threads. anyway, if i buy pi heads, a pi intake and the gaskets for the heads and intake, what else do i need to buy to do the swap?
Intake gaskets, front cover seals, valve cover seals, exhaust gaskets?, pi coolant tube, water pump nipple, head bolts, that's all i can think of off the top of my head. I've heard a flexible dipstick tube makes life easier as well.
heres a pi swap kit i found but is everything in this kit absolutely necessary for the swap or can i go wihout some of it? i know i can at least go without new spark plugs but what else?

buy the kit thats wat i did came with a nipple for the water pump(i didnt need) the new pipe running threw the valley gaskets and intake was like 2something had to replace cuz my old 1 cracked where the radiator line went in the front. make sure i use gasket sealant on the front and back cooling ports. and get help when u place it down cuz i started then notice my egr valve was messing me up had to call for help while making sure i didnt drop it lol
