    Possibly an intake gasket set if your old ones are bad and maybe fuel injector o-rings. Since you're doing heads and you have a 98, did you get heads with a perimeter bolt pattern if you're re-using your stock valve covers? Otherwise you're gonna need center bolt valve covers and coil pack brackets.
