    I say if you have the funds and doing a rebuilt then try to upgrade as much as you can. The new oiler mod is a great idea when running a larger supercharger, aswell as upgrading to an 08+Shaft with the new washers. Make sure the block doesn't have a crack in it, those SBT engines aren't the best of quality.

    Good luck.
