rebuilding h23 some input

i'm about to tear down my h23. this is what i'm planning...
sleeving and boring it to stock 87mm
and just get the heads rebuilt and have new seals put in.
9lb flywheel
gates blue race timing belt
87mm cp pistons

considering or input:
have the rods polished or buy h beam rods?
balance shaft delete?
oem bearning or acl?
aftermarket oil pump or oem?
what brand gaskets? (oem honda or would brands like beck/arnley be good enough?)
what bolts should be changed to arp?

currently mine is a dsm turbo build.
440cc injectors
255lph fuel pump
ectune'd ecu
dsm 16g turbo
fmic
aem fuel rail
and boosting 8lbs.
i'm smokin really bad so i'm planning on tearing it down. i plan on keeping the same amount of boost b/c the wastegate is the dsm internal wastegate that opens up at 8lbs anyways... thanx for your input.

Re: rebuilding h23 some input

while you have the engine apart, opt for better rather than cheep so that your 8PSI build will be durable. You don't want a built engine to break agter 5,000mi.

gaskets - beck/arnley
ARP bolts, ACL bearings, H beam rods

Re: rebuilding h23 some input

thanks...i ordered the head and main arp bolts from my parts dealer.
i guess now i need to order the acl bearings, gasket.
but the rods... i thought the h23 rods were strong enough as long as they're balanced and polished?
