Default 100k maintenance...what else?

Need to do my timing belt and will also likely do head gaskets and valve cover gaskets, and possibly the clutch. Question is, is there anything else that would be good to tack on while everything is opened up? This is for an '05 STi.

I wouldn't open the motor without reason. I wouldn't touch the head gaskets unless they're gone. Maybe some one else can correct me, but the head gaskets on the turbo EJs are pretty robust unlike the earlier non turbo 2.5s.

OK, maybe I won't need to then. I just don't want to spend money doing work to only have to do more later at a much higher cost. As an example, when doing a radiator, it makes a lot of sense to do hoses/tstat at the same time even if they don't "need" it as you are already paying for the majority of the labor. If I do the clutch, are there any seals that can/should be done easily? Should I do the tranny mount?

Agreed with kpluiten, the head-gaskets are very robust. If they aren't leaking, no need to take the heads off.

If you are doing a timing belt and water pump, i'd replace the radiator as well if it never has been yet. All new hoses seems like it would be a no brainer no? Buy a cam holder, makes it way easier for the extra 50 dollars.

Plugs? Unless you just did them at 60k ...

OK, would not have thought water pump. Thanks. Radiator/hoses/tstat are fairly new. Will probably do plugs.

I know my valve cover seals are leaking a little, if I replace those, is there any work that should be done on the components behind them?
