Thanks for all the responses guys
Nothing else you need to do, except change the PCV valve if needed.
I just called the stealership and the PCV valve would be $11 + tax so I ordered it just in case.
What brand of gaskets did you get? Not sure which way to go. Seems south of the border they're a lot cheaper, starting at $32 for the V6 and going as high as $72 [here there pushing $80] but haven't checked out the dealerships here nor there yet. Just curious on what is the better way to go with them.
Are you talking $32-$72 for just the valve cover gasket, spark plug gaskets or both?
OEM valve cover gasket for $16.05 total
OEM spark plug gaskets (4) for $17.53 total ($4.03/each)
The guy gave me a bit of a break on the spark plug gaskets since he told me the wrong price when I asked before. I think they would've originally cost ~$6 each.

The distributor o-ring I'll probably end up changing as well for peace of mind. It's $5 + tax at the dealer so I'll probably get it when picking up the PCV valve. Yeah, there's a little bit of oil that's been on the valve cover on either side as well as near one of the spark plug boots if I remember correctly, however, nothing seemingly major as it's never actually "leaking" per se. More of a very, very slow ooze? I'll get some pictures of the areas I'm talking about and post them later if the rain ever stops. Thanks again everyone.
EDIT: I just looked up the paperwork from the previous owner and realized that the PCV valve was replaced in June 2006 so since it's recommended to be replaced every 60k miles/48 months I probably won't replace it, although I'll test it just in case.
