I am getting a bunch of maintenance work done on Friday in leiu of hitting 80k miles. Am I missing anything important?

Plugs, wires, tires and air filter are almost new. Entire suspension is less than 6k miles old. Rotors are also in great shape along with headers/downpipe/exhaust. Alternator is only a few months old and Optima battery is about 2 years old. The rest of what I am getting done is below:

1. Replace Valve Cover Gaskets (small oil leak on front)
2. Change Oil
3. Change Fuel Filter
4. Flush Transmission Fluid
5. Change Belts
6. Change PCV Valve
7. Install 180* T0stat
8. Bleed the Brakes
9. Install Brake Pads
10. Flush Engine Coolant

The only other thing I could think of is cleaning the injectors.

TIA!

I'm putting my 18s on, so that covers the rotation. The K&N will be cleaned and there will be a new trans filter going on with the flush.

techron injector cleaner is good.

Flush the braking system, get out all the black stuff, and have it all brand new.

Flushing coolant really varies from shop to shop. Some do the bare min and some REALY do clean teh hell out of your Radiator, Engine and Heater core.

Some, even take the plugs out of the heads to do and extremely detailed job.
