Motors coming out..what to do

So I spit a wonderful pmr out my oil pan last night which leads to the motor coming out..I wont know what all was damaged untill I get it torn apart but I was hoping to get together some parts that I should swap in while the motor was out...So far im planning oem forged rods, 910 springs and chromoly pushrods...is there anything else I should go ahead and adress..I was possibly thinkin arp studs but can those be installed with the motor still in the truck? Just trying to get the truck back on the road without breaking the already broken bank any advise on best place to buy and so forth will be great

not positive yet...the hole is in the oil pan so fingers are crossed that there isnt any holes in the block but alot could change once we get it out of the truck and can see

Re: Motors coming out..what to do

I have a p-pumped 12 valve sitting here in a box truck..unfortunatly I dont have the funds for the swap yet but its always an idea..if I can get a decent bottom end under this 7.3 I will build it to 5-600 hp
