well, replace the coolant hose across the front leading to the turbo.

Well, for AAN conversions that switch to the S2 intake style, there aren't
many hoses that can be reused.  So, most hoses are brand new.  I'm hedging a
bit on my language, because I actually can't think of any hoses that I was
able to reuse on my car.  Sensors and everything else just got a cleaning,
though the intake temp sensor got run over while the motor was out of the
car, so it was replaced ($115 from the stealership!).  

For the 3B guys, if the motor is known to have been running fine, go ahead
and leave it alone (except for a good cleaning).  There aren't really any
hoses on these cars that are difficult to r&r, when they eventually need it.
If the engine is new to you, I would always recommend a t-belt service, just
so you know.  I'm not really a believer in doing an engine rebuild (or other
parts replacement) unless it really needs it.  Of course, I am always
thinking with a strict budget in mind.  Others may want to take the
opportunity to do a rebuild now that the motor is out of the car.  Personal
preference, really.
