building a 327, need advice

i'm building a 2 bolt main 327 sbc, large journal, that i'm reassembling the bottom end with eagle sir rods with arp bolts and arp main BOLTS not studs. the block has been bored 60 over, honed, decked 10 thou, new cam bearings freeze plugs. rotating assembly has been balanced. this is my 3rd small block reassembly but my first "fancy build" and i've never used arp hardware or lube or anything of that matter. I've already plastigauged everything with the factory main bolts, and the arp rod bolts with no lube, and the specs are great, and i'm wanting that peace of mind with the arp main bolts as well but i don't know what im doing there to be honest and i'm worried that something will change once torqued with the lube. what should i do? also any other random advice about 327s would be appreciated lol
