I am considering changing my valve cover gaskets because they are SLOWLY leaking. While I have the upper intake manifold and valve covers off what else should I look for/clean/replace? The car has over 150000 miles on it so I don't want to spend too much money. Thanks for any tips you can provide.

Since you will remove trottle body/upper intake anyway, I suggest to clean several air passages in it, especially EGR, which is only ~3mm in diameter so it clogs easily. Also, if you didn't change spark plugs for a long time, it will be much easier to remove them from firewall side with upper intake removed.
