I wouldnt worry about it. Drive it like you got nothin in it or its just no fun. If it blows, well, that is part of rodding. A friend of mine spent money on all the good stuff for a BBC buildup for a race car. Went out on the street mess around a bit and scattered it all over the place. It was the first engine he ever worried about doing everything right on and a rod bolt still let go.
Sounds like a fun car by the way.
