Well, if I were you Iīd do it like this:
1) Lift the heads and look at the cylinders at least. Or tear the whole engine apart and check it out.
2) Donīt just spend money on hp. Make sure you start spending it on making things last.
3) If youīre going for high rpm's, balance it. It will be worth it.
4) Now you can start thinking on getting high comp pistons, kick-a** heads, roller cam etc etc.
The only problem is that doing it like this cost money. Much money. On the other hand you donīt have to make repairs as often.
Last but not least, do what you do now: Ask. And remeber no answer is an absolute truth (neither is this).
