I would do both the PS and A/C belts (Keep in mind the A/C belt is a stretch type and needs to be cut off due to there being no tensioner), T-belt, water pump, tensioner and idlers, and the cam seals wouldn't be too bad of an idea.

Most people say stick with OEM Thermostats, it's such a trivial thing for aftermarkets to mess up at.

I was thinking that... But I plan on doing a motor build and trying to make a straight drag car and I didn't wanna have to replace this later

AC belt you can walk off and on, but it's miserable.
I found a pretty easy method of working the AC belt off the pulley:
Feed a piece of flexible tubing/hose in between the belt and the ribbed pulley as you rotate the crank clockwise. As the tubing is drawn into the pulley, it squishes & lifts the belt out of the grooves so you can push it off by hand or with a pry bar of some kind.
