While engine is out...replace seals (rear main, front crank, cam, intermediate shaft) along with timing belt/tensioner, water pump, check out freeze plugs in rear of block and if they look weak replace them (cheap and ez while engine is out, a betch with it in). CV joints repack/boots? Shift linkage rebush, steering rack adjustments EZ with engine out, room to work! Engine mounts in real good shape...if not now's the time to change em!

put a new clutch in, too. I recommend a 16v pressure plate. If you know how, the final drive flange oil seals and input shaft oil seals should be done on the trans. If u do the flange seals, go to the dealer and get the 2 thrust washers that go in there (part# 020 409 295). Mine were shattered when I did those seals.
