Talking Stroker Opinions

I recently purchased an 84 GT for $500. It runs and drives and is in fairly good condition. Kid that I got it from had all the right intentions, but not the greatest methods. I have a build in mind but need opinions on the engine options. I am replacing the stock 4 speed with a T-5, will have a 3.73 or 4.10 rear either 8.8 or a 9". I am looking to make it a good streetable car with enough power to hold its own. I know that I wanna build a stroker...but am at odds with which one. 331/347 would be less costly since the car already has the 302 base. 393/408/418/427 would be more costly since I would need the 351W base to start with. I am looking for opinions or experiences with the stroker family.

Topping off the short block I am thinking of World Product heads aiming at 9.5-10.0:1 and at less than $500 fully assembled. 224/234 duration .496/.521 lift hydraulic cam; 650-750 cfm carb, edelbrock intake. Might go with a Edelbrock cam/head/intake combo for effeciency...but I digress.

Thanks in advance for any opinions...and please dont hesitate to offer ANYTHING for advice.

Parts for stroker parts will be the same. Need to clearance bottom of cylinder walls for the 347 so there is no rod to block interference. Better choices for head and cam are coming. Look down.....
