GTO NA Build

Hello guys. I think i have a spun bearing so needless to say i am going to pull the engine and rebuild. So that leads me to an opportunity. My goal is to rebuild the engine and keep it NA. I want to have the max amount of safe power. What i mean by safe is enough power to keep it as a DD. Enough power to have speed but not have to rebuild the engine every 50k miles. So reliable max power and keep it NA

I have a 2006 GTO manual trans with cold air intake and exhaust.

I have been doing some reading and I am going to need some help on what to pick out. Its using a t56 and i would like to keep it that way.

I have read that there are some sleeves i can use to increase the strength of the engine. The questions i have is:

How can i pull the engine? What are the steps? If there is a good write up i would love to check it out.

What type of Crank?
What type of pistons?
What type of heads? Should I port the heads I have or buy different Heads?
What type of clutch?
Will i need to upgrade the drive shaft?

I would like to buy an upgraded oil pump or bore mine out for better flow.

I am working two jobs just to do this project.
