I am working on the delicate balance of what needs to be done and what is nice to have done. I don't want to spend $10,000 on a $3,000 motor

But I want to have a solid bottom end, so I opted for the ARP bolts, and found out that "requires" the rods be resized, if I had stuck with stock rod bolts, the resize is "advised"

subtle difference, but an important one, with some sound explaination behind it. JWE told me they have seen rods that are very stiff after tightening the rod on to the crank when switching from stock to ARP, so stiff the rod would not fall under its own weight. So I think it is a "required" step, atleast in my mind.

As for clearances, I will go with stock because I am not planning on 8000+ rpm,
