Ford 532 stroker

Im looking into stroker ideas for my 385 series engines and someday i want to get some more inches out of the 2 429s i have i was looking into the options i have and it seems most share the 4.3 in stroke so any way i go the rod ratio seems to come out to 1.58 which doesnt thrill me but its livable i guess. should i start out with a smaller bore stroker set up incase i need to bore it then i could just get pistons from a larger stroker with the same stroke? or should i just find one with a shorter throw crank so i have a better ratio? how would a ratio like that feel? does any one have a stroker like this or an engine with a ratio like this? im thinking 10:1 compression forged pistons, h beam rods, c9ve heads with port work and large valves and a bigger cam. looking for a hi torque engine for my bronco. thanks for the help.
