Cracked radiator so time for a overhaul....

My radiator has a small hairline crack in it. I'm getting ready to order the kit from Turner Motorsports with the stewards pump + expansion tank. New belts are going to be ordered too. Is there anything else I might want to order while I'm doing all this?

Where's the lower thermostat temperature sensor? If you're refreshing everything else, I'd do that too.

Good eye! I have two sensors one for the expansion tank and the coolant temp sensor. What I don't have and need are the plugs or the radiator and expansion tank. The expansion tank bleed screw broke when i touched it and the radiator plug has seen better days.
