So I am told I need to replace my head gasket. Also, the valves apparently need repair? Timing belt. Since I am going to have the engine apart, are there any other items that I should replace? Injectors? The car has 180k so I want to be proactive if things will be taken apart and ready for new/upgraded parts. I am not looking to upgrade performance, though I am ALL EARS, I just want to avoid the mechanic for awhile after spending nearly $3000! I really want to keep my car for a few more years.

Usually with headgaskets I do as follows:
Timing belt
Water pump
Timing belt tensioner
Valve cover gaskets
Tube seals
Spark plugs
Downpipe gasket

Inspect:
Crank seal
Cam seals
Oil pan seal
Oil cooler seals
Oil pickup if doing pan
Rear main, clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, throw out bearing (if pulling engine)
Oil control valves
Turbocharger

I think that's about it.

Buy the master gasket kit. Replace every seal you can access with the motor out.
