Replacing my 7.3 with other one and I have some questions

Hey everyone! I didn't know where to post at here or in general discussion. I recently picked up a 2000 7.3 engine with 150xxx on it to swap into my truck. I am going to be changing some things before it goes it. So far im going to changing the
1. Water pump
2. Oil pan and seal
3. All the boots
4. engine mounts

Is there anything else I should change while its out or that you guys would recommend to do while it's out? Thank you in advance!!!

Be sure to check the tube that goes from the EBP sensor to the passenger side exhaust manifold. Sometimes, they get holes in them or they can become clogged with soot. If holes, it will need to be replaced, if clogged, it can be cleaned out.

This can be done while the engine is in, but less stuff in the way while it's out.
