is the motor blown? have you confirmed that? if you want you can go thru and forge the internals etc. spend some time in the internal performance section and search...lotsa good info on here.

i personally wouldnt bother with a complete rebuild unless the motor is blown. throw a cam in it and go!

x 2 if it isn't broke, no need for a rebuild. Unless of course you have like 200k miles
