Studs, Springs,Pushrods??

I am looking for some advice on whether I need or should put in headstuds, valve springs or pushrods. The motor is being re-built right now. I don't want to spend the extra money if it is not necessary for the mods I have but I want the truck to be reliable after this is done. I don't want to be a thousand miles from home and have something go wrong if I can do something now to prevent it. I mainly use the truck for a daily driver and towing my 5er. I am installing forged rods in it and having a tranny built. As soon as it is running, I will be adding a regulated return fuel system and some new tunes. Thanks, in advance for any comments or suggestions.

Thanks, Marc. I've been reading this forum for a while and you always give some sound advice. I have never seen more than 30 psi. but I suspect that I may see more with new tunes. I have no idea how much HP this truck should or will make when I'm finished so I didn't now if I would need these things or not. Just thought I would rather be safe than sorry and ask some guys who know.

If the motor is being rebuilt get some forged rods in there.

Comp 910 valve springs.
Chromoly Pushrods.
ARP or H11 headstuds.

I was hoping that you would chime in too. I am putting in forged rods. Just didn't know if I needed the other stuff. What is the difference between the ARP's and H-11's. The ARP's that I've seen seem to be much cheaper? Any idea where to get them quickly and of course cheaply? Any idea how much HP I should be at when I'm done?
