Please list what you have. That way we can review it and make suggestions better.

Watch out for the vacuum lines!! At least the connectors!! Also, be very careful witht the EGR tube. Do not try to bend it. I had to pay a $26 stupid tax for this one

If you don't get a new UIM, you'll need the gasket for that. If you stick with the current upper, I'd suggest getting a hold of Bill Buttermore to see if he still has any shielded reduced diameter stove pipes. That will go a long ways toward protecting the upper.

Get the Dorman "Help" coolant elbows, some high temp RTV which will work better on sealing the end gasket corners, brake cleaner for cleaning things up, and throttle body cleaner to clean up the throttle body and IAC passages. Oh, and some thread seal for the LIM bolts.

Go to someplace like PepBoys or Autozone (my local Advance didn't have them) and you'll see a section of hanging cards that say "Help" on them. They have everything from master brake cylinder caps, to body clips. One will have the two coolant elbows that you need. Part number 47065
