Generally, using a gasket as a template will require the heads be matched too because the gasket is also larger than the port on the head.

650 HP, 6500 rpms with hanging rpms in a mud pit, possible 100 shot.......you need a forged crank if you're going to stroke it. The H-beams are fine. Wouldn't give em a second thought.
