If I were in your shoes, I would go with the ballanced rotating assembly, no waiting, no hassle, but with that much metal in the engine I would be concerned about metal in lifters, passages, etc. I have rebuilt enough motors to know that starting with everything clean, saves wear down the road.

Pull the block have everything cleaned, throw in the rotating assemble and put it back in. I am not a professional, but I am experianced and I would hate to see you throw 700 bucks into a motor that gets damaged due to old shavings in the motor.
