Looking at doing motor work.

So I'm pushing just over 600whp on my superchargerd LS3. I'm.turning the boost up so I'm wanting to upgrade my pistons and rods. Heard the factory crank is good to 1000hp. Not looking to go crazy but just beef it up a bit. I may want to run some nitrous down the road.
Anyone have any suggestions on a set of rods and pistons? My motor is still low miles so Im looking for a set of drop ins basically.
MODS: All stock for now.

I would look at getting a entire new short block its not cheap to pay for engine work and our blocks have cast in sleeves that cannot be bored only honed to a max of .020 that's if the sleeves were not originally out of alignment requiring more one or more to have to be honed a lot to bring it back in line.... Its basically a disposable block, you may have them take it all apart re hone it to a oversized ring then install new pistons only to discover you should have just sold your block and bought new.....I bought my engine searching on ebay......... $5k 428
