318 build!!!

My current 318's got a tick/knock going on now so I can finally give myself an excuse for a new engine :D
I know there's a lot of these posts here, did a search, read them but I still have questions as this is my first time re-building an engine.

I'm going to go look at a few good candidates to rebuild in the next few weeks.

Not sure what cam to go with, I'm thinking about either a lunati voodoo or high efficiency cam and lifter kit. I believe I can't go more than .454 on the lift but correct me if I'm wrong.

Thinking about going with keith black pistons, thinking about kb167 std's, want to get the compression up but I still want to run ~83 if I can. 318's have floating pins so I'd have to match that up right? I want to re-use the rods if I can.

I'm guessing I'm going to have to replace the studs, if I go ARP am I going to have to change anything around?

Other than that I can't think of anything right now that's perplexing me.
