New Engine to replace High mile 2000 OB with bad heads-best practices please?

While the new one is out, I was going to do the water pump, timing belt, complete engine overhaul gasket set from subaru, and all of the timing belt pulleys and bearings. I think the cam and crank o rings come with the overhaul kit, but not sure?
Do I run into the same plastic seperator on the 2000's as I ran into on the phase I's?
Anything else you guys would suggest while she is out of the car?
Motor goes back in tomorrow.

Seperator will be metal - but I still reseal them.
Tensioner? AT 100k I don't see it an mandatory. But be very careful compressing the new style tensioners.
I never buy the whole Subaru kit so I don't know what comes in it.
I'd imagine still check/reseal/tighten screws on oil pump?

yes, pull the oil pump and locktite and loose screws in place. then obviously reseal the oil pump.
