Default Replacing Head Gasket- What Else?

I have my subaru in the shop right now to have the head gastket replaced, new timing belt and water pump and a new clutch to be put on. Im interested if theres anything else I should get done while it is in there. I was thinking spark plugs as well. Keep in mind Its an Outback with about 205,000 miles on it. Thanks!!

Have 'em check your tensioners and bearings.

Timing belt

Water pump

That is the standard list to do with the head gaskets.

Make sure the heads are checked/milled for warping. A competent shop should already do that though.

Yeah they said they would be sending them out to be resurfaced. Do I replace anything with the synchronization?
