As far as from a heads and Cam standpoint is concerned? I know the following are not and I need them: Head gaskets, Front Engine Seal, and header gaskets. I was wondering about the water pump gasket or is it part of the front seal? Also I am doing a 160* T-stat so I will need that gasket too Correct. The oil pump gasket is part of the Fron engine seal I am pretty sure? I am sure I will figure it out once I get in there but it woule be a lot easier if I knew beforehand. Aslo was wondering about Valve Cover Gaskets and Intake gaskets. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

valve cover gaskets you can reuse.

the oil pump pickup has an O ring you can reuse, although the book says to replace it.

the new thermostat housing should have an O ring seal in it already

the coolant air bleed pipes *may* need new gaskets

there is no gasket between the oil pump and block

you need a new front cover seal, intake gaskets, water pump gaskets,

what else. i'm getting this all from the book so someone who has actually done it may care to contribute. I need to know too cause i'll be doing this soon myself.

Gaskets are cheap insurance. Replace what you remove. If you havn't got time to do it right the first time, you sure as hell won't have time the second.
