347 Stroker Kit with shorter rods

I dropped my '87 roller 302 block off at the machine shop this morning. We discussed the idea of getting good flowing aluminum heads and/or a stroker kit. For the stroker option he recommended getting a 347 kit with the shorter rods to avoid the piston pin/oil ring issue. I have heard of these kits but not much about what people think about them. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I have the "short rod" 347. I liked the idea of not dealing with support rings for an imperceivable power gain, but in reality, if the engine is built right you won't notice the difference either in power or oil consumption. It's all about the machine work and assembly.
