Actually many 352s will go .050 over to standard 390 bore, mine did. What you need is to disassemble the motor and get the block sonic checked (about $60) this will tell you the thickness of the cylinders. If you end up with mroe than .100 after boring you're good. I had lots more than that with my 352. In many cases a 352 is just a 390 block that was not bored as large at the factory.
The other reason to get the sonic check is that some blocks have excessive core shift. Whan this happens at the foundry, some cylinders will end up thin and the block will not take any overbore. I would not put any $$ into a FE block without the sonic check.
If it will bore, then just get a 390 rebuild kit with pistons and pick up 390 crank and rods (cheap). The heads, intake etc are all the same.
