Do I need new intake manifold gaskets ect?

I'm about to put my heads and new oem head gaskets back in the truck and reassemble everything. I was wondering just how many new gaskets and seals/orings i'll need to properly assemble everything back together. I've already got a turbo kit with gasket, orings and hardware, oil cooler rebuild kit. I will be getting new injector o rings but do I have to go all out on them? Will I need a new copper washer and internal peices? Or could I just get away with the outer o rings and connector seal? also, would it be a good idea to get new valve cover gaskets and intake manifold gasket? They look fine to me but I was wondering what other folks had to say. thanx

I was wondering the same thing as I plan to do this soon. I think you would at least want to replace the intake gaskets and from what I've seen it's a good idea to replace the injector washers and o-rings.

Thats what I was planning, I would hate to do all that work and have a cheap gasket or seal fail that was super easy to replace when doing the work.
