E34 pistons, connecting rods and Crankshaft

Hello all!

I've done a small post on this together with a pic of my car in the showroom...but here comes the real post!

What I'm looking to achive is a high RPM 520i...looking to at least reach 8000RPMs(safe RPMs that is...not just to take away the limiter)...but I'm going to try and get it to run safely up tp 10000...in some distant future...

So I'm just wondering if anybody has done anything like it before?
I've been getting some tips from Aether here on Bimmerwerkz and uptil now it seem like i need a set of really strong pistons...really strong connecting rods...and a superstrong Crankshaft. Does anybody have any good brands to check out..and maybe some prices that would be great.

If you know anything else i should think of reinforcing so please tell me so i can make a price estimate as soon as possible so my car won't be standing in the garage when summer comes

May all your cars run trouble free *waves a BMW banner*
