These are the parts people usually buy and replace, well the most common anyway...There are other parts too, but they usually dont need replacing.

Common parts:

Camshaft
Cam gear
Valves
Valve Springs
Retainers
Sometimes Valve Guides
Sometimes Valve Seals, Seats or Keepers
Gaskets

yup this man is right. people also do a port and polish on the head as well, but its not necessary and a lot of people on the forum said it doesnt do any difference.

Like Tyler said, the p&p isn't really necessary until you get to a point where you need maximum flow, ie putting down big numbers. It doesn't hurt, but you wont be taking full advantage of it either..
