Engine rebuild

I'm currently rebuilding my motor and I'm boring the block .020 over and getting a forged crank and diamond dome pistons with h beam rods, also with trick flow twisted wedge heads! What other little things to I need when I start building it!? I need all the parts I need because I'm not too familiar with some stuff yett

get good, crank and rod bearings, all new grade 8 bolts/headstuds (arp is the best), piston rings, and gaskets of course.

I'm not really sure, just check prices, I know arp stuff ain't cheap, but well worth the price IMO because you won't have to worry about them failing on you

Don't ever go cheap on rebuilding a motor. Every bolt and bearing makes the difference. My suggestion to you would be a good oil pump and oil pan to lube that beast well. Also a windage tray might help too. What cams are you going with because domed pistons might get ptv clearence issues.
