Tips on kinda building a obs 7.3 motor

Hi yall well the times come and I'm rebuilding the spare motor I have and have a few questions. I'm looking to have food longevity out of the motor and already have moderate performance stuff on the current motor, 180/100 injecters, t500 hpop, irate t4 kit with s369sxe, Tony Wildman tunes on a ts6, clutch, 6.0 Intercooler, dual Bosch pump diy e fuel, 6637 air filter and 4in straight pipe exhaust. I've got push rods, valve springs and studs already for the motor I'm rebuilding but I'm wondering if I should replace lifter, valves and get a girdle even though I'm still running stock rods. Looking at a mahle stock rebuild kit from riff raff and getting machined (de lipped) pistons. Any help and advice is much appreciated. Thank you

Definitely replace the lifters with new motorcraft ones. You shouldn't need a girdle for your setup, but I suppose if you did get one it would only help.
Obviously make sure to get your heads and block pressure checked/magnafluxed, crank checked for out of round, etc as well.
