Well, due to earlier post, i have began thinking about a rebuild of my engine.
I've been thinking about wiseco pistons and eagle rods, any comments on this. Also, should i wait with ordering the pistons until removing the block? What i know is that the engine now is newly rebuilt, doesn't drink any oil, has new piston rings. Could i assume that no overbore would be necessary or is it always better to use a slight overbore? I don't want to wait an extra month for pistons, as the rebuild probably will take its time anyway.
I know the head has been decked before, and probably the block, so i was going to use a titan 2mm hg.
Anything else "musthave"?
It will not be a monster-hp machine but i wan't it bulletproof.

Thanks!

Have a machinist check the rods fully before using them
A general advise or are they known to have quality issues?

The balance isn't always the best and the Dimensions vary somewhat so it's a good idea to have them checked out.
