Are the 1.7/1 rockers FORD geometry rockers...? Be sure the rocker arms are Ford geometry.

Matching the engine size to the heads is paramount ... with those heads a 4.150" stroke would be my choice and 4.300" stroke at the most, if you're planning to eventually upgrade the heads. Torque is NOT the only factor, as necessary wheel speed, (which usually happens AFTER peak horsepower), is a major requirement.

as for my knownledge the rockers are ford geometry. i would like to run 12:1 or higher if possible on a 521 or bigger stroker thinking ohio crankshaft kit or a scat kit i want to spin this thing around 6000 rpm constant in a pit will be running stall converter and 4.56 gears maybe 5.13 gears in low side

I can tell you for a fact that a zero decked D1 block, stock crank, SCAT h-beam rods and ported/slightly decked d0ve's will get you around 11.7:1 compression. And if it's put together with the right parts, will put you into the 600+hp range. ;) An off the shelf cam like you are looking at won't do for you what you want. Get a custom cam ground for your application and head's.

My little 466/c6/205/4.10's on 38.5 boggers did 6.4 second passes this past weekend with a bit of air time at the end of the track that slowed me down. If could have seen where I was going, I would have missed the bump and been closer to 4.something passes!
