[Es2] Camshaft and other choices?

Hi all,

I've stepped onto the slippery slope by getting a donor 3B for my 90CQ 
and there's no turning back now.

 From what I've read here, it sounds like the more time spent gathering 
parts before starting the swap, the better. My plan is to do the swap 
with a "minimum" of downtime, something like 30-45 days. (with a little 
luck!) So, besides the often mentioned replacement parts like timing 
belt, water pump, clutch, etc., I'm wondering what benefit there is to 
looking at camshafts, lifters, valve springs, head porting - anything 
to squeak out just a little more.  Any obvious methods of raising the 
redline? (Carillo rods?) Anyone try treating, coating, pistons?

Any positive or negative experiences?

Many Thanks,

Mike Teter
