Sure, heads, intake, injectors,................


Just inspect your lifters for any chipping or wear on the rollers, your pushrods to make sure they are not bent or damaged on the ends and your rocker arms to ensure the pushrod sockets are ok and the pivot point is ok.
You will also want to ensure your pushrods are of the correct length.
With the rocker arm installed and tightened down correctly you want the arm to contact the valve tip right in the middle of the tip.
If it is off to the side it side loads the valve stem and pushes it into the guide wearing it out fairly quickly.

That's up to you, but if you are running the old, tired parts it would probably be a good idea.
