The benefit of a stick crank is the weight. Weighs almost 40lbs lighter then a forged one.

if you're not gonna want more than say 600hp, I dont see any issues with the stock scrank. get the mmr base piston/rod kit which is like 700 i believe and rated for 600. stock crank, king si bearings, get it balanced, and you'll come out with a nice shortblock for around 1200 if you can assemble it yourself. I was going to go this route but have a feeling once i make around 600hp, i'll want more after a year or so. haha.
