The engine rebuilding forum is usually a better place for these questions.
I'd use ARP, Raceware, or Supertech rod bolts if I were you and they come with torque instructions using non synthetic motor oil on the threads. They are much better than stock ones and can be reused.

The big ends of the stock rods eventually become oval or egg shaped around .001" and they should be measured and resized with the rod bolts installed and torqued to spec at a machine shop.
If you're definitely using new stock rod bolts have the resizing done with the old bolts torqued to spec and if using the better quality after market bolts have the resizing done with them installed and torqued to their higher torque spec.
Maybe you had that done already.
