I don't know if you do your work yourself but I wouldn't get the flywheel done unless you do the clutch at the same time. The labor charges are almost as much as the cost of the flywheel.

I'd say go with the pistons and rods

Might not be what your looking to do but i'd say save up a little more and try to find a gsr shortblock to throw under that b16 head. If you can't do it yourself its gonna cost a lot though.
