block rebuild where to start?

Hello all ive finally got a good b204 block that I want to start build for my stage 5 setup. I already have a fresh head on my car right now that I did with the timing chain and balance chain.(1999 saab 9-3 vert auto). I want to start building this over the winter. Im not planning to go for anymore power than stage 5. So I have a few questions
1.Is it necessary to go wossner piston? If not would there be any benefit to them? Or would it not really be worth it for the amount of money.

2. I have started to disassembly everything and want to know what the first thing to do before ordering any parts? I mean like have to crank checked balanced and and measured to see if I need over size bearings?

3. Is deleting the balance shaft a good or bad idea for me?

4. Do the oil pump gears actually wear out and need to replacing?

5. If I reuse pistons do I just need to have the cylinders honed? If it has to be bored over then I would have no choice to get new pistons? Also do these pistons become "weaker" after say 200000 miles? Or if everything is balanced then would it be "good as new"?

Im sure more will come to me in the morning but for now I need to go to bed but will add more as I think of it.
Thank you Connor
