3.0 CIS system cleaning - refurb questions

I have completed my long block.. WHEW!!!!!

I am now on to the CIS system. Looking at the unit, it is nice and dirty. I have a difficult time imagining installing the CIS unit on top of my perfect long block.... Okay...

Should I remove the metal intake/injector manifolds and bead blast 'em or hand clean 'em?

Should I replace the injectors?

I will replace the gaskets for the intake manifolds, What about the rubber boots on the other end? I did notice before the re-build, that my idle was slightly inconsistant. I've heard that leaks in the CIS system can cause this to happen. Replace them all?

Are there any other "best practices" that may help me and others out when re-installing a CIS system that has been setting up for over 6 months?

Any pointers, ideas or helpful hints will be much appreciated!
