I hope you had a brain fart Vinnie as I'm sure you're smart enough to realize that the shorter stroke has absolutely nothing to do with the gears. An equally built 327 will outperform the 305 at every rpm, even the low ones.
What should be of concern though is that this is an old worn out engine is questionable shape, on its best day it was marginally better than the 305, after years of use and neglect it needs to be freshened up.
I would only look at the 327 as a core, and for free you're still coming out ahead as long as the block is decent.
