Ok the engine isnt out, but am planning on doing a little winter project....or back to school project. Whichever comes first. I will be putting a hot cam and lifters in, replacing many gaskets (I have many oil leaks) and taking of manifolds AGAIN and fixing the stripped threads in my heads. Should I go the extra step and replace psiton rings or anything else while this is out? Thinking of N2O in the future.

Freeze plugs. They are in between the engine & the trans. Not expensive and pretty difficult to replace later.

save your money and buy a good used 3.4 out of a pre 95 camero. just need to drill the starter holes on the opposite side of the block. Good for about 20hp over stock and it has a much better oiling system.

install exhaust manifold studs

replace water pump with NEW pump (not rebuilt)

Run a tap through the threads in all threaded holes in th block and dab a bit of antisieze in them

remove and overhaul the distributor. Clean all the built up gunk off the shaft so it spins freely. Install new distributor o-ring and maybe even the ignition module and pick-up coil.

Port intake and exhaust manifolds.

Inspect/repair all vacuum lines.

Replace all 7 fuel injector's o-rings.

Thoroughly de-grease and clean engine and wiring harness.

Remove A/C and alternator bracket and run a tap through the internal threads and dab a bit of antisieze in them.
