    Tear it apart and clean it, rebuild it, with ARP parts, and make sure everything is within spec clearances, gaps, etc. check for good condition. And replace parts like the waterpump, thermostat, your cooling system will be affected harshly by boost.

    don't forget to replace pistons and rods. 160,000 miles is a lot to boost on.
