Yeah mains is part of it, and while I'm no expert on this, from the things I've heard from good builders, it sounds like it's the top half that is most likely to get out of whack, where the torque plate is critical.

Either way, good luck with your build man. My engine is currently in surgery too, I've had one built before as well, I know how you're feeling right now. The worst part is how easy it is to succumb to the "while I'm at it" money trainwreck.
