I am going to add some sound proofing to the bulkhead, clean up the wiring, and add some heat shields above the cats. What else should I consider since I will have great access to everything? I'll probably hit the front suspension, too...

Clutch, throwout bearing, pilot bushing, clutch fork, rear main seal, paint behind the trans cross member, check frame behind cats, motor mounts and trans mounts.

The engine/transmission/clutch/mounts are all new (yeah!) and the master/slave was replaced a few months ago, so safe there. I'll chech the frame at cats. Planning to repaint sliders and bumper, too. I suppose it would be a good time to check front suspension bushings. I'm sure I'll think of something else right after I put then engine in, too!
