If it was me and I had the engine out of the car and planed to and turbo down the road. then yes rebuild it. Its better to rebuild it know then put the mods on and blow the motor and damage what could have been saved. Cracked head. God forbid any thing happen to your block.

Get it built but supply the parts. Eagle H Beam rods, SRP Pistons, ARP Headstuds.

be sure to replace the oil pump during the rebuild.......some places will use the old one.
