Update the oil pressure relief valve w/ new springs and shim for high pressure

Stock rods are fine, Rod bolts are debatable, if you run stronger bolts, consider more rod bearing clearance if you will sustain near 7000 rpm on track.

what else?
I would say for the small amount of extra coin, while the heads are off, I would go ahead and twin plug them. Whats the going rate now $400 to $600 bucks or so? If you don't do it, and then decide you want to after you get the motor all back just doesn't make sense.. just do it...

I totallly agree on the micro polish and the center main oil mod...

Stock rods are fine for a street motor with a stock redline. I however, would not trust the stock rodbolts to hold together two piecies of sheet metal, let alone the bottom end of the rod. This happened to me, and when they go, it will cost thousands of dollars worth of money. Why risk it?? It is a known fact that the stock rod bolts are worthless.

DonE, has shimmed his oil pressure relief valve and has gotten very positive results.

I just would hate to see you split the case and not do some of these mods and then wish you have had later down the road.
