Default Changing Spark Plugs This Weekend

Other than what has been posted already in the spark plug tutorials and information threads, is there anything else I should take a look for as long as I have the intake manifold off?

1. I put in a new manifold gasket. I didn't want to take a chance and have to tear it apart again because of a vacuum leak due to a bent gasket.

2. I put dialectic grease in the coil-pack boots, and I also added it to each of the electrical connections for the coil-packs and the fuel injectors.

3. Make sure you have a proper torque wrench. An aluminum head is very unforgiving.
