Fel-pro MLS gaskets are a good bet when it comes to head gaskets.
For my engine build I am using sealed power main bearings and clevite rod bearings. Teksids are great (its what I am building, but its staying DOHC), and you can get them cheap from a mark. And from my understanding they, matched with PI heads, will increase compression more than PI heads to an NPI iron block. Good for a nitrous build
