Default Questions for you guys with forged motors

I have a forged rotating assembly as well as arp rod bolts, dss racing main support, and arp main support bolts.

My question is what other bolts and stuff will I need so that I can put the motor together?

I am looking for what other things I will need to buy to get the motor together and running

Arp side bolts, arp crankshaft bolt, arp head studs. Can reuse the timing chain tensioner bolts and oil pan bolts etc. I would replace the timing chain guides as well.

Hey dw if you can't find the stuff that you need used, I would suggest you check out Mod Max racing. Pretty cheap, excellent warrenty and best thing, customer service is outstanding. Also I agree with the man with the plan Kerns. I would most def change the timing chain guides as well. Learned that one the hard way...What's your plans for the car? Are you planning non bumping the boost up a little?

I'm running a melling billet aluminum oil pump. Yes that's all you'll need as far as bolts are concerned. Don't forget main bearings and rod bearings.

Yes to OEM gaskets. So far they seem to be holding up just fine
