Default Parts to Replace When Replacing Engine

I'm preparing for the fact I may need to replace my engine, and I'm trying to gather up parts I may need (or will need in the future anyways).

What are items that are good to swap now to save on labor, etc? I'd like to provide my pick of parts rather then whatever the mechanic can get his hands on at the time.

So far my shopping list for things I should replace anyways is:
Head Gasket
ARP studs
Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Thermostat
Timing Belt
Synthetic Oil, Oil Filter

May possibly need or want to replace:
Radiator
Oil Pump
Turbo
Injectors

Anything else that is typical when replacing an engine? What would you replace for sure if you had no idea what condition your parts were in?

ALL the hoses. Water pump. Fan clutch?? Vacuum hoses. Cap & Rotor

Clean really good all the parts before going back together (ISC, throttlebody, intake manifold, egr system, etc).

Steering rack if leaking. P/S pump if leaking. P/S hoses if leaking.

Transmission front & rear seals. Worn shift linkage grommets.

A/C hoses if leaking.

Radiator cap is a must !

Complete gasket set. Water pump, hoses (especially those in the back and, well all of them...lol), radiator cap, flush radiator, check out the steering rack boots, the engine and trans mounts get soft esp. the trans mount. Exhaust system, check the donut between the driveshaft halves. Clutch set, get head rebuilt, definately bearings and probably pistons with rings, get the block decked.


I am sure there is more, but that is it for now from me.

Keep us informed.

Thanks for the responses so far...

Do you just call up toyota and say "I want all hoses the hoses for an 88 supra" or do you cut/fabricate them yourself? (except the high pressure hoses?) I imagine getting ALL new hoses from toyota must cost at least $1000.

Yes Toyota does have a pretty high value on their stuff. Most if not all the hoses can be gotten from a parts store, you just have to be patient but there aren't that any hoses. Someone on the forum has a service manual link that is very complete. Check with Suppra-girl or supraman or do a search. It will show all the hoses and anything else you may want to know.


Let us know

Well for the turbo you are looking at more cylinder pressure and more heat because of a harder combustion. They all need a flat and clean surface to have a long lasting relationship with the head gasket, whether it is turbo or not. And like some have said in here, ARP studs or bolts that allow much higher torqueing which keeps the head gasket stable and as little movement as possible between the two.The block decking is mainly to get two very clean and very flat surfaces to mate right. Any variance could cause a leak, which the turbo will find quicker usually. You can deck a block to raise compression too by having the pistons come up a little higher, or you can mill the head for the same purpose. Just make sure you get your cam timing right again or you will lose that power you were trying to get.
