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.

I want to buy the PI swap also, but i dont want to pay a bunch of money to install it. You got a hookup spot?

Or you kno how?

I'd help you do yours if you help me lol.

I also wanna throw on a short throw shifter, gears, midpype, (would like to do LT's but dont wanna pay out the a$$ for the installation on that one either).
