302 engine build up

Hello; Im building an R block 302 engine for a customer and have a few questions to anyone there
1.The block has ARP head studs already installed and I know they use different torque than regular hex bolts.What torque?
2.The block also is 4 bolt main in the 2nd,3rd and 4th mains and I dont know the torque for the bolts (small and big ones).
3.The engine is .020 over in the pistons and Im installing Ross hypereutectic slugs but the machine shop left them with a little bit more clearence than the spec sheet said(.0032 instead .0027) and the rings have .020 gap first and second .022 .Do you think I will have troubler with them.I rebuild the engine because it drunk oil like $$%%/&()(=)?P^lll..But would I have oil consuption with this gaps?
Ahh! I forgot to mention that the engine use a vortech V-1 supercharger!
Thanks in advance for your help:Bye
