Arrow Building 357w, parts question

well my plan is end up with a 357 with a mp t76 turbo wanting 600 or 700 rwhp. Question is i want to grab a block out the junkyard, can i use the stock crank,rods, and just put some fordged piston in there and be fine. Or should i do fordged rods and pistons. If so what size pistons and rods should i get. part numbers would be appreciated or links. i have some AFR 58cc 205 heads trying to get down to 8.5:1 compression. Thanks for the help

My goals are similar to yours. I'm running the following:
94 F4TE 351w roller block
Stock cast crank
Eagle SIR forged rods 5.956"
TRW 2446F30 Forged pistons 13.2cc dish
With a stock block the pistons are .025" in the hole giving me 9.48:1 compression with a .047" head gasket and 58cc heads. I'm shooting for ~9:1 CR which is a 62cc head.

so would this work these pistons say they would give me 9.0 compression with 58cc heads. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SRP-138722/ i would get some 64cc heads but my friend gave me such a good deal on new afr 205 heads i can't pass them up. and would these rods work http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ESP-5956FB/ so if i get these to i should be good to go with stock everything else?

I know, weird. Those pistons, according to my calc, would give you 8.58:1 w/ a .047" gasket. I have those rods. Should work great.
