Default What are good things to replace while rebuilding a ej205?

Hello nasioc I've posted here a few times in the last week and I have a few more questions! So I recently ending up blowing the motor and it's under warranty so I am getting the motor rebuilt (unfortunately I was not abe to scam the warranty company into buying me a jdm ej207 , so I'm having it rebuilt) so my question is what are some things I can buy to prevent failure of parts later on down the road and to make this motor last a long long time?

This is a list of things I already have on the car.

Turboxs full turbo back exhaust (old school 4inch downpipe)
sti non catted uppipe
V3 accessport on stage 2

These are the things I have bought for the rebuild.

Gates racing timing belt, water pump, all pulleys and tensioners.
Tomei timing belt guide
killer b motorsports oil pick up and baffle
OEM oil filters
south bend stage 1 clutch

Also having the heads rebuilt since there off the motor anyway. Just rebuilding the motor back to stock...not going to be drag racing the car or anythinG. It's my daily aND i want it reliable. However....I would like to upgrade (in the future) to a vf turbo, sti pinks, walbro 255lph, and possibly a nice tmic by grimmspeed, mishimoto, process west, etc, and obviously a tune. But is there anything els you guys and gals would recommend upgrading over stock b4 the motor goes back together so I don't get charged anymore for labor?

Also bought a steel braided clutch line and a pitch stop mount!

Thx for any feed back

Use Sell Rotella T6 instead. Also, upgrade the bearings if possible

I'd do a break in on Castrol and shop for an experienced tuner. Get an aluminum radiator.

At least do forged pistons when rebuilding the shortblock. That way you don't have to worry about cracked ringlands later on.
