    Pulling the head for valves -- what else should I do?

    Pulling the head off my modded RXP, and sending it to Chris so he can put in Supertech valves and springs.

    While the head's off, and while I'm waiting for it to return, what else should I do that's easier with the head removed?

    Use ARP head studs for reassembly. Upgrade the flywheel bolts and do the 08 oiler mod. Not really related to pulling the head but since the machine will be down for a while now is the time.

    His flywheel bolts should be good (06).... but the charger oil jet would be a good addition, especially if running a big charger.

    I was thinking ARP flywheel bolts to avoid this:

    Oiler mod sounds like a good idea, and I'm considering the flywheel bolts.

    I'm assuming I should put in a fresh head gasket when putting the head back on. Any other parts I should order now?

    Head gasket.
    ARP head studs.
    Rocker shaft bolts.
    Valve cover gasket, this is rubber and can be reused depending on condition.
    Cam sprocket bolts.
