What other parts to replace with intake manifold off?

I am needing to pull the intake to replace the orings and possibly heater/water pipes that are under the intake as they are leaking on my '00 528i.

Being that I have to pull the intake manifold what other parts should I order and have on hand to replace besides intake gaskets and orings for said leaking pipes? While I am doing this work I am also removing the oil filter block gasket as there is a small amount of oil leaking form there so that entire unit will also be off the car being resealed at the same time long with a new oil hose for the Vanos unit as that also has a minor leak/wet spot.

Vac lines are easy as I have a ton of spare hose here and any of the hard plastic line for the PCV system I typically just replace with rubber hose so I have that part covered. I did the TB gasket not to long ago and I figure I could get the intake off and back on without removing the TB so we shall see.

Thank You for your time.

I'd start here - and - when you're done - I'd go BACK there and UPDATE it for the next guy!
- What stuff (parts, fluids, gaskets, o-rings, filters, scanners, tools, etc.) should we stock in our garage for eventual use (1)

Also, I'd read and update this thread:
- What other tandem parts to buy while you're there (1)
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
