Next years build. Need opinions/facts/advise/help

Hi I'm going to be doing a big build this upcoming winter on my 89 lx and I'm starting to put everything together now. To start off I already have a good idea about what I want to do and have all my goals set. I'm shooting for 500whp/tq. No I'm not planning on using the original block lol. But here's what I have so far. First off keep in mind that I want to run a supercharger at some point to boost my power curve up to around 600+. What I have in mind for a motor is either a dart based 331, 347, or 363 (badas* 6.0). Now my question to you guys is what would I be best off getting. I want to go through I have herd good things about them. And those are the options I have to choose from with a small block. What are the pros and cons of each.

Definitely go with Fordstrokers and do a 408, don't even mess around with a 302 based block. You'll save money with the OEM 351 block which can take well over your power levels and you'll be able to hit 500 without any sort of power adder with ease.

Talk to Woody about what you want to do and remember, you can have a 500+whp car but without the right suspension/chassis upgrades and a driveline to handle the power you have a very expensive paperweight.
2000 Mustang GT Steeda build #48. Bolt ons, suspension, Novi 2000.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
