I re-read your original post. I must have missed the "mostly strip". In that case, you should go for as much compression as you can get because these little motors need it. SRP sells a 12:1 piston and they are pretty nice pistons. Then get some good rods as mentioned. I prefer Scat I beams with 7/16 capscrews. Main studs would be a wise investment. Splayed caps aren`t needed but they are a good investment. For heads, it depends on your budget. you can get some 200cc Iron Eagle heads and have the bowls blended and they will work great. You can go aluminum if you have the money but keep the runner size under 200cc`s. Then go for a solid roller. something in the 250/260@050 range , these little motors need to spin to make the power. You`ll want a 750cfm carb and a good intake. You`ll also need about a 4000-5000 stal and plenty of gear., 5.13 minumum for 1/8 mile depending on what your ET goal is. you should be able to run low 11`s-high 10`s in the 1/4 pretty easy.
