Default engine swap

Hey guys. My 02 PT needs another motor. I just found another one at a junkyard with 89,000 miles. I plan on taking it to a trusted mechanic to have the swap done. I want to try and take everything he will need to do the job. Aside from the regular fluids and tune up the motor will need, I plan on having a timing belt, tensioners, water pump, and exhaust gaskets. What other things will I need to bring for him to have everything he needs for the swap, or is this all? Most of the old parts on my motor like hoses and belts are all barely new, so I've got that covered too. Thanks, and any advice is appreciated.

Jon...
If it was my swap, I would replace the front and rear main seal. You would be very frustrated if a leak happened to show up between the engine and transmission.

One thing I can think of is making sure that the replacement engine is compatible. The crank sensor has to be on the same side as the one in it. Just a thought.

Ok, thanks so far guys I'm going to check with the junk yard about the crank sensor,,, mine is on the passenger side. If its not on the passenger side, like mine, then it wont work? Can I make it work, if its on the opposite side as mine?

It's got to do with the computer reading the timing. To my knowledge, no.

I'd add: cam seals and oil sending unit. Also, check on this site for more info on the crank sensor/computer issue. But I believe Busted is correct.

I would also suggest plugs, wires, grommits, valve cover gasket and manifold seals :-D 89k could have been well taken care of, or not, however these things are just things i would have done IMO

Ditto on the seals and oil sending unit.
