Problems with 427 strokers??

I've been looking into building a stroker outta my 351W i have. I was wondering if there are any reliablility problems with a 427 stroker?? I've heard a little bit about oil comsumption, but nothing really concrete. I was also wondering if the rod-ratios would affect it at all? The motor is going in a street-strip car and i don't want to be rebuilding it for a long while. Thanks.

i built a 392W > 4" bore x 3.9" stroke = 392.07. 6.2 rod , 1.35" compression height , 1.589 r to s ratio. no problems. i could have bored it but its a new ford racing block and .030 wouldnt have done much if anything. i could loose 100 pounds from my fat azz and probably make a difference.
