ZF5 upgrades

well i think i am swaping my E40D for the ZF5.

I would like to know what parts people reccomend upgrading when i do the swap.

The manual i will be getting has a centerforce dual disc clutch, a new slave and masterclyinder i think with 30,000 miles. The total transmission miles i think is 138,000 and may have been rebuilt at 30,000 miles ago.

Are there other parts that will need to be replaced during the swap like gaskets or just anything new needed after the swap. I am just trying to put together a parts list that i will need for the swap.

I hope to upgrade to stage 2 injectors, a D66 over the summer and maybe a electric fuel system if money allows since i am in college. So i would like the tranny to be stout enough to handle the power.
