engine internals for over 500hp

So I have a pmr motor. I was curious as to what else should be done/replaced if I swap em out with forged rod since the motor with be out. I know headstuds is on the menu. I just wanna have an idea as to what I need to be lookin at. I know some will say just buy a used forged motorand build it up but I do oilfield work and travel and I dint wanna tote a tore down motor with me everywhere I go.
