Default Timing Belt

Going to install new:
cams, cam gears, cam seals, timing belt, water pump, front crank seal, cam cover gasket

Anything else worth touching while in there? TB guides and tensioners?

I bought a TB kit from mazda when I did mine, and it came with the spring for the tensioner, but not the actuall pullies or bearings. Surprisingly, the new spring was stiffer than the old one, so I'm glad I replaced it. I wish I had replaced the little ruber seals that go on all the plastic covers that cover the TB. Mine are in poor condition. If yours are fine, I wouldn't worry about it. I installed a new pump, not a reman.

Also, make damn sure you put the cam seals in correctly, or they could fall out and soak your new TB in oil

Thanks. It's only a 60k motor, so I don't think I need to get too carried away. And realistically, the motor will be pulled out soon, but I don't want the next owner to have any problems. The water pump I'm getting is a super pimp FORGED dealy-o that I want to test out.
