I guess the last question for now is bearings. For the rod and crank bearings, is there just a standard size or will there be specific size on rod and crank that need to be matched for bearing size? I've built very technical Honda engines Where bearings needed measured and then I've built diesels Where you just throw in a standard size and torque to 300 million lbft and forget about it so I'm not sure what to expect here
You can use any # piston/rod in any # slot, just make sure the number on the rod and cap both face forward. Use sealed power STD size rod bearings and dont worry about the main bearings, my wifes car with 173k miles on it looked fine so I dont even check them anymore on rebuilds, the brunt end of the force and wear is on the top rod bearing.

PS - dont buy that kit from Import Performance, holy crap thats a rip off for those parts and it does not even include a head! Keep the SPI the way it was designed to be, a gas sipping eco box.
