.60 460 bottom end with forged pistons, trade for 351c, 400m, or a semi auto .45 pistol

I bought this kit with the intention of building a motor for my 78 truck,but I'm gonna stick with my 400 for now, If I can find a bottom end, stroker or otherwise, with at least 9.5:1 compression. Then I'll 460 it later with a 545 stroker motor. the kit has

Speed Pro, forged, 23cc dished pistons, L2404F .060 4.420 bore with 5/64, 5/64, 3/16

Brand new Ford 6.605, F9TE-BA rods,

Ford 2Y ABC Crankshaft internally balanced

Cleveite 77 bearings

Total seal rings

The kit has been internally balanced, and all pistons and rods weight matched.

Jones broke one ring during assembly but sent me another ring to replace the broken ring. It only needs to be check for ring end gap.

The crankshaft had a couple of nicks on one journal but he decided to just polish the journals instead of doing a re-grind. Due to the lack of bearing selection if you were to grind the crankshaft. Every engine builder he showed the journal too said that they wouldn't be scared of that since it has been polished.

Its sitting ready to ship in my living room, exactly as received from jones, it was opened to confirm everything was fine, then sealed right back. I'm in East Tenn. and would prefer to ship ups, but if you prefer something different we can talk.

Heres the pics.

can i run this kit with a 4.3 crank? i would like to buy but i think i need 6.7 rods????
If not then what would be the compression with 95cc heads?
also does any rod fit on any crank? i would probably use either the 4.3 or my stock crank
