If you are going to be using any boost at all I would put studs in the main bearings as well as the heads, much better clamping force there.
I'd also use all Fel-Pro gaskets/seals as well as Perfect Circle rings.
Same stuff as I use on my 352......

Thanks man, I was going that route with the fasteners, since ford uses one torque bolts. I'll have to give perfect circle a look, haven't explored their products yet. Ty again!
