Manley or pauter rods, cp or weisco for pistons. Acl bearings, as for which exact ones research for what your gonna want in the end result.

If your going to do this it wouldn't be a bad idea to upgrade to a 2.5 block. You can get the block halves used for cheap then the rest of the parts your basically already buying like pistons, rods, crank, etc.

You mentioned the most power so more displacement won't hurt a bit.

Avoid drop in pistons, pay to have your 2.0 or what ever block you use match the pistons you buy exactly. Bore and hone is not much extra at this point at the machine shop.

Wiseco, mahle, all good pistons.

On bearings some people like to go acl race for the rods and oem or acl standard bearings for the mains. Mahle also makes good bearings. As AK ej20 said bearings are something you have to decide what you want in terms of life span or toughness.

Change your pickup tube(covert, killerb) and get an sti oil pan and sti oil pump.

ARP head studs.

OEM STI head gaskets if you go 2.5 or cometic if you go 2.0.

Cams would be fun if still in the budget.

The list kinda can go on and on.
