Default The engine builders tool kit(engine builders please advise)

Alright, so with the delivery of my H6 rods I should be pretty much ready to crack the case and start assembly. I have waited till now to purchase my tools I will need for taking the critical measurements for assembly.

My question is, what do others use/recommend. Also, what methods do you follow? for example Do you measure torque on rod bolts, or stretch?

Also, there are so many diff options for tools like bore gauges, some are extremely expensive while others are cheaper with the same supposed features and accuracy. Do I buy the expensive stuff, or are they mostly the same?

So far I have gathered this is what I need, please let me know if I leave anything out, and recommendations on each one and where would be great, hopefully this can be added to the FAQ in the future.

Cylinder bore gauge(should i do electronic, is analog fine, how much resolution?)
Micrometer(small throat)
Micrometer(larger throat, like for measuring pistons dont know if ther are specific names for them)
Calipers(thinking a nice digital would be good)
Digital torque wrench(could go analog, just as long as it has proper res/accuracy)
rod bolt stretch gauge(necessary?)

Does this seem like a good list, anything else? What should I expect to pay for these items?

Thanks a lot for the help!! I realize its a lot of info.

my engine and I thank you
