First, I think it sounds great and idles great. No idea why you would need to do a bottom end. What's wrong with the top end? I'd ask if it burns oil, but you change it before it has a chance to burn.
Second, I hope you opened a door! That's a long time to be dumping CO into your garage with the doors closed.

Rarlyl8 is correct. Drive the car. Spend some time with it. I wouldn't do a thing but drive it if I were in your shoes. Waiting until the top or bottom end fails will not appreciably increase your rebuild cost, so what are you hoping to achieve.

Report back after you put about 2000 miles on it this spring and let us know how much oil it burns.
