Well it seems i will be rebuilding my engine after some serious problems ended up with a cracked piston/ring and no compression in # 1. What should i be looking at doing to make a good/reliable bottom end for around 10psi? and yes ive been searching and reading but its all mainly turbo stuff, whereas mine is supercharged. pic of setup before removal and car:

If you use your standard rods you might want to look at getting them shotpeened to relieve any developed stresses in them.

What are you running for engine management? Who did the tune?

No bottom end is indestructible. A good tune is as critical as bottom end "strenght" for durability.
