Default What parts to replace during engine rebuild?

2002 SC2, Manual

I'm preparing to have my engine rebuilt through a local shop.

The owner said that they can swap out any parts that they have to pull off anyway ( that aren't normally part of a rebuild) for no additional charge if I provide the parts. In this case a rebuild is bearings, pistons, rings and such. I'll get a complete list of parts when I get the formal estimate.

They'll be using Silvo-lite pistons.

The parts I already have for them to replace:
new Denso radiator
new clutch plate, flywheel, throwout bearing

What else should I have replaced since the engine is going to be out and apart anyway?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I have new pistons, bearings, water pump, alternator, oil pump, timing chain, engine mounts, injector o-rings, IAC valve, TPS, rod bolts, and of course seals/gaskets/head bolts.

What intake manifold are you going to use?
An original 17yr old plastic intake is NOT the ticket...

I assume you are referring to the problem where the coolant pipe breaks? Already happened. I replaced it with the steel part from carsaturn.com

Or were you referring to some other problem that I have failed to already have happen to me?

You got it already! (Yes, I was referring to that darn plastic pipe). Glad you got that fixed.
