Oh boy where to start.
I guess the good news:
The four barrel, spacer, headers, fan, trans cooler are all sound choices, as is boring the cylinders, and cutting the block and heads.
But: unless you are planning on towing 747's out onto the runway there is no need for a stroker crank, and by the way, you would not be able to fit longer rods in with a stroker crank. Factory rods are forged, not cast. The head is where you should concentrate - it is too restrictive for the engines 4 inch stroke, much less a stroker crank. Bowl work and maybe bigger valves with screw-in studs and roller rockers will all be plusses. Good luck.
