the pistons would be about the only thing you would realy need to change.
the stock rods (pre AU) are plenty strong enough.
even if only to a set of ACL cast race pistons with a little extra machined off the top to get the comp ration down a little.
something to consider would be coating the piston tops. HPC offer a good coating. keeps the heat out of the piston...

and as with any hipo rebuilt no old bolts. ARP rod and main bolts are the go.
or at the very least NEW stock bolts

i dont see you having any problems with the diff.
those things can take a hell of beating

you'll need something stronger then a btr box befor the diff breaks.
you may wear out cones though
