460 build to ? need help

I have forged free floating pistions with a slight dome to them 30 over. an edlebrock performer cam, hv oil pump that will fit the stock pan. D3ve-a2a heads(i'm planning on switching, suggestions?). edlebrock performer intake. mallory hei dist. milodon gear drive. 3/8s push rods stock length. and I have either a 650 carter carb or a 750 edlebrock.

I've been concidering stroking it however the pistons in the heads i have already have a comp ratio just shy of 10 to 1. a friend of mine suggested using a crank with the 4.3 stroke but rods that match the 4.5 so the piston sits lower in the cylinder and lowers my compression. In theory it makes sense but will it work! This is going in my daily driver so it needs to be torky and run on 91. PLEASE HELP

Thread should be in engine tech section.

Some people can break a cannon ball, in a sand box, with their bare hands.
