Default Pistons and Rods

I'm looking for a good piston and rod setup. I'm assuming eagle and CP or JE. Just looking for some experienced words on this, I'm new to replacing engine components within the block.

Also, would 92.5 pistons work in the stock block or do you have to get it machined to fit?

One more thing, Crower makes stage 2 cams with a ~270 duration. Are these, or any other cams, worth doing which the block is apart?

92.5 would need a slight overbore. GSC also makes very nice cams, but they cost a bit more.

So 92 would be perfect I'm assuming. What kind of benefits would I be looking at with cams?

If you want economy rods I'd check out the Manley's.

I'm not looking for economy rods, if I'm pulling the block I might as well put the best in there.

Crower makes some pretty beefy and expensive rods.

If your attitude is to sort of "take care of it while it's apart", then you would be looking for 92.5mm pistons and a machine shop to bore your block. That is of course unless your block is brand new.

Also consider what compression ratio you're looking for.

My block isn't brand new, 28k miles on it, so I'll probably get it machined then. So Crower would be a good choice? I'm trying to find out the best brand for the money, something people have actually used and have experience with.
