    stock bore = lower cost but if the ring ridge has become to big it will need to be bored.

    331 or 347 is kinda pointless in a stock block as they arnt very strong.

    if you are going to add a blower and it gets bored you should go with low comp pistons and a good set of rings for boosted applications. arp bottom end bolts would be a good idea as well as getting your stock rods shot peened.

    I would build a 306 or 331 depending on your budget, also build to handle boost.

    none, you can build a good motor with the e cam which is fine to run with a blower too
