One of things I seem to remember (correct me if I'm off) is alot of people claimed the stock rods were good to around 20psi? I'm not sure the HP level necessarily. Might as well build a bulletproof bottom and deal w/ a head later. Thats exactly what I'm doing. I think a full bottom end (parts) was 740 w/ HGasket and ARP studs. See my "Seller Review" of

nope I'm investing in a dffr as we speak. Should be shipped here shortly. I don't want to do the DIY b/c I'm afraid i'll tap it wrong and it will leak. However it is a super good idea!!!

How might I go about a collant reroute?

+1 For stock internals with 200whp. Just do good EM and you should be fine. I know you baby it anyways so youll be alright.

That's essentially the same reason I went with my swap- durability. You're engine should go a looooong time with minimized demand relative to the build strength.
