331 Stroker and C4.....Parts okay?

Hi there Mustang Friends!

i want to stroke my 289 Engine and rebuild the C4. Some of you expert guys could help me answering some important questions?

Here is what i have:
- 68 Mustang coupe
- stock 289 engine with Edelbrock 289 Performer Intake and Edelbrock 1406 Carb 600 cfm, runs good and smooth
- pertronix ignition system
- Tri-Y-Headers
- Flowmaster Super 44 Delta Flow Mufflers

what i want:
- stroke the engine to 331, adding some hp for street and strip (rarely), rebuild to c4 to handle the extra power
- using the stock block (wont bore it over) and the carb
- more fun

parts i want to buy:

AFR 185 Heads 58cc SBF Renegade 20 Degree
Edelbrock 7121 Performer RPM Intake
SCAT Engine Components 1-94055BE - Scat Engine Rotating Assemblies (Stroker Kit 331)

you can find all parts on summitracing and see the specs there if needed.

Okay, now i wanted to ask if this setup sounds good? Any improvements? Do i need any other parts to build the engine? If so, can i use the missing parts from the 289, or are there any specific parts i still need to buy? Do i need some other parts for the C4, or is it already too much and the stock C4 can handle the power iam getting with the new engine?
Probably i wont build the engine myself, giving it to a professional, but want to do the C4 myself.
