Default possibly rebuilding a L36

If i am somehow able to rebuild my L36 what could i make stronger?
I know the piston rods from the L67 are stronger but are they the fit w/ everything else on my L36 if i slap those on? Pretty much what is weak and what are my options Any help would be great.

The lowered compression of the SC'd pistons is to componsate for the extra torque the SC puts out.

I would consider stronger rockers, better flowing heads & exhaust, larger Fuel Injectors, etc...
