what to do with motor out?

well my 2002 7.3 needs some work done and requires the motor coming out, needless to say i only want to pull it once. here is what i plan on doingwhile it is out, new oil pan, up pipes, exhaust manifold gaskets, and turbo pedestal o rings. what other preventive maintenance would you guys do?

Question

I can see studs since you're already in there, BUT not really as much on our 7.3's, as a 6.0 .......... Unless you plan on building big power.

Then again you might consider how much power you wanna attempt on your 02' model with PMR's....... Jus' Sayin'

Right on. So, don't put money into head studs if you aren't planning to "build" your engine. It would be money spent better elsewhere, or at least money saved. It really kinda sounds like everything else you're doing is pretty much gonna cover all the bases. I can't think of anything else to do if you're just trying to fix leaks, etc.
