Default 07 impreza need advice on replacement parts

So my impreza I think has a bad head gasket, I've ran all of the tests hoping it wasn't. This will be the 2nd gasket thats been put in, 212,000 miles

Anyways I plan to do the job myself and was looking for recommendations on what else I should replace while i have it apart?

I already replaced waterpump, timing belt, pulleys, thermostat, and radiator.
And I know it needs valve stem seals

Thanks

I would check to make sure none of your hoses are dry rotted or turned into solid plastic. I don't know if you have that kind of issue where you are from. It sounds like you'll be removing a lot of lines in the process so be careful of any old brittle parts.

Accessory drive belts? A/C and P/S, Alt Belts. It also doesn't hurt to maybe consider cylinder head bolts. Factory bolts are technically only to be re-used so many times. As you might know they tend to stretch and cause improper torque on the head. Also, always have your heads decked/re-surfaced and check the block for flatness while the heads are off, at least during your first head gasket change or once in the motors lifetime.
