Tappets won't need to be changed.

Set your flywheel end play ... there's a shim between the two timken bearings on the left side.

Select the correct pinion bearing. Two precise measurements and a table in the service manual are involved.

Upgrade your primary tensioner and your oil pump drive gear if you haven't already done so ... both are weak points.

Check your cams for proper fit. '99 motors had fitted cams and moving cams from one motor to the next requires making sure they still fit properly.

Torque your cam cover in the proper sequence, it's important.

Do your pawl adjustment correctly.

Torque your cylinder studs correctly. Flanges down, red thread locker. Oil your head bolts and torque properly.

Just take it step by step, make sure you do everything correctly. The service manual is your friend, get one if you don't already have one. It does a good job of giving you proper procedures.
