Default Help me with my rebuild parts list.

I am getting ready to put my engine back together and started building a parts list. So far...

Oil Pan Gasket
GMLS Head Gaskets
ARP Head Bolts
Oil Pump
LS7 Lifters
LS2 Timing Chain (Do I need a kit?)
Valve Seals (I have 241 heads)
Water Pump (Gaskets)
Timing Cover Gasket
Intake Gaskets
Cam Plate/Gasket?
Engine Mounts

Any thing I am missing? I'm open to suggestions on various parts... for example

Should I use a Melling or just an LS6 oil pump?
Should I use an LS2 Timing chain? what other options are available?


Thanks! I don't deal with this stuff enough to be an expert and I know plenty of people here have the experience to ensure I get the right parts.

i personally went with a melling pump and it is better than a stock one. idk how it compares to an ls6 but i have about 45psi fully warmed up.

you will be fine with an ls2 chain, you wont need a kit. might as well do a rear main seal and rear cover gasket while youre at it.

Don't forget the valley cover gasket, rear main seal, and rear main seal housing gasket. Looks like you got the rest I think.

Thanks guys! I have an Ls6 oil pump that never sat below 40psi hot. Seemed to do pretty good.

I'll check with TMS to see what all is coming with the new block in case I need those deals you mentioned.
