Suggestions Please

Okay, I just bought a Lude, has 140k and needed a tranny....

I took the engine out last night, finally after a couple of days of problems, it comes with a engine and bolts this old and with this milage

Heres the things that are going to be performed on this Motor
Replacing the Following:
- Head Gasket
- Timing Belt, PS belt, All Belts LOL
- Water pump & Seal
- Plugs and Wires
- Motor oil
- Tranny

Things Im considering
- Buying a Complete seal rebuild kit....I want to replace all seals on this motor...

Future plans
- I want to build the motor inside and out
- Eventually get it boosted

I need suggestion on what lil things I can right now that the motor is out...

was going to post pics but I need 15 posts or something

You kinda of nailed it, that's all i would do with the motor out...I cant really think about anything else with the motor pulled...
...tranny fluid change is a good idea too.
