Sounds like you need to have a discussion with the refs.
If you deck the head and use a stock head gasket then technically you still have all stock parts. Does that make it not "stock" goes it depends on who you ask?
What about suspension? Some parts naturally ware out. So do you have to have "OEM" equivalent shocks or sway bars or struts/ shocks? Or could you upgrade as long as you still have the same geometry and style of suspension?
Edit: after reading what all is done... this almost sounds like a semi demolition Derby... the last paragraphs would make me not put a dime into it....
