Default Engine Rebuild. '92 SSEi

The engine is getting tired in my '92 SSEi. I'm planning on completely rebuilding the long block, as well as the SC, but what I need to know, is what items do I need to pay any special attention to? Rod bolts need replacing? Any known weak areas that need to be adressed?
And finally, what rebuild items suck as cranks, bearings, rings etc. are common between the NA 3800 and the supercharged model?

Moved to 92-99. This isn't a supercharger issue.

Ok, sorry. I figured since there'* several unique components to the SC engine that this belonged here, but I digress. Thanks for moving it.
