Looking for some help

Hey guys I got an ls motor I wanna swap into my 94 four door and boost. I'd like to end up making between 300 and 350hp and keep it reliable to drive everyday. I've heard the ls head is good for about 400 hp so I was thinking I'd like to do a mild build consisting of just eagle rods wiseco pistons and having yall just inspect everything and making sure everything looks good and just replacing rod bearings and any gaskets or anything else we might need when being put back together. I've never had a motor built and do not know what all might be done to freshen up a motor during a rebuild. Keep in mind I'd settle for a little less power if reliability would be better. This will be a future project but I'm hoping I can take it to yall to do the work and back to yall once it needs a tune with boost. I don't know if you'd like to discuss my options and baseline pricing for set services or would rather do that through private messages but id really like to hear what yall think and any suggestions yall might have, thanks guys

Either sleeve it or at least put a block guard on it.

Which machine shop do you plan on using? They should know which direction you should go.

That's a bit extreme no? The walls aren't thin on these motors like let's say a b20b, ive seen alot of high hp cars running fine with the right tune. I'm more worried about the tune than anything and ive heard Chad is a tuning genius so I'm sure that I won't have to worry about the tuning part. And I have no clue what machine shop I'm gonna use it was kinda hoping noribilt or one of the other shops could recommend one. There's none here where I live that I'd trust or that know anything really bout building a performance motor.

I know Chad pretty well..and yes he is a Great Tuner. I'm pretty sure he will suggest the sleeves or block guard too. The big issue is not how thin the sleeves are, but the movement of the sleeves themselves in the water jacket (yes they move and could affect your head gasket seal. If you want reliability, I would recommend not to cut corners here....thats just my humble opinion.
