Maintenance/Replacements/Peace of mind

I'm getting my camshaft oil leak fixed next week it's also getting a TB job done and waterpump. What other things should I get replaced, adjusted or cleaned while all the work is being done? The only thing i've received is getting a new manual tensioner, what do you guys think i should do as well? Getting the leak fixed and waterpump and TB is gonna cost me $400 i'm able to throw in another $500 for maintenance replacements adjustments and just peace of mind things. Let me know what i should get done! Please and thankyou :)

Front main seal, balance shaft seals, cam seals, water pump, timing belt, manual tensioner, valve cover gasket, cam plug seal



That would pretty much sum up everything on the drivers side (the cam plug seal is on the passenger side, but while the valve cover is off, why not go the extra step and replace it.

Rear main seal should get replaced whenever you get around to doing the clutch.

Maintence wise wing8806 said it all. But fun stuff you could paint your VC while it's off I cleaned my VTEC solenoids when I took off my VC just something easy to do to prevent it getting clogged.
