I used the factory stuff with good rod bolts down to about 11.75 in the 1/4. When I rebuilt and went roller I went with the Eagle internal balance, 6" rod 4340 crank kit and had good experience with it.
A lot will depend on budget. My kit was ~$1800. Scat and Eagle both make cast kits for under $1000 i believe.
