I'd stick with the 327 myself.

if your 327 is running well then leave it in there.

but for future reference, a 350 makes about 7% more power than a 327 build the same way. Just like a 383 makes more power than a 350 and a 400 makes more power than a 383.

adding cubic inches adds more power (plain and simple)

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

sounds like both engines are going to be rebuilt, if that' the case, build the one that's in the best shape. if the 327 is already together running in the car, it's not worth the time and money to swap for the 350.
