What optional things would you do?

I plan on just redoing everything like a normal rebuild.

But, I am thinking of what extra's I could do?

I already have a torque cam.

Balance the crank, rods, and pistons?

grind the valves?

New valve springs?

Port the heads?

I am planning on setting up my spare intake for my dual HS6 carbs. I also want to go over the cooling system with a finetooth comb. Maybe find a dual core radiator, clean the gravel from the A/C condensor and have its leaks fixed. New water pump (my impeller is all corroded).

Id love to hear recomendations, especially ones that can be done cheaply or just by investing time.

Balance EVERYTHING! A friend did this to a mini engine - balanced averything including camshaft, water pump, so on. Small difference, but its there.

Shot peen rods, get valve train suitable for 10,000rpm.

Plane head or get spfi pistons to increase cr.

get hydraulic lifter heads with their associated cam and lifters, better power, have Delta take a look at the cam as well.
