Engine rebuild - tips for upgrades?

I am taking my engine apart to find out why there is a knocking noise. While the parts are scattered around on the floor it would be a great time to install some upgrades parts inside if the budget allows. Can you walking 930 encyclopedias give me some advice? This powerplant need to support a K27HFS making over 400hp.

I know that it is getting ARP rod and head bolts and 964 cams. Other than the normal wear and tear parts that will get replaced with OEM Stuff what should I upgrade?

Are the original valve springs and retainers ok if I keep the RPMs under 6500?

If I do need pistons and cylinders what should I get? OEM? C2 turbo full finned? Aftermarket? What pacakge will last for 60k miles? I don't want some piston slappy race stuff!

Is the 930 oil pump good?

I need to keep the parts budget as low as possible but if the pistons and cylinder are toast it will add up fast
