if it's going to be used hard on the road then i would fit a deep sump and prob a windage tray in the case as oil surge while cornering can be a real engine killer.
Doubt you will need a extra cooler on a road car but full flow is a must so you can fit a proper oil filter. A stock size oil pump will be more than up to the task.
If you really want to go for it with stock compents , polish the rods once they all wiegh the same, match the weights of the pistons.
you need to match all the parts , no point in fitting a cam that lifts to .500" if the heads run out of flow at .450" lift. same with carbs and exhaust, i see it all the time. carbs and exhaust far to big for the engine.
Just looking to future proof first
Twin carbs
P/p heads & matched manifolds
1.25 rockers
BAS exhaust with heaters

Then look at possible cc increase
