Too many to list. Most popular is probably the 393 (3.85" Scat crank), the 408 and 418 are good ones, (plus the forged steel 4" crank has become pretty reasonable in price recently), the 427W (4.125" stroke) is pretty well documented, while the smaller 372, 377s and 383s have sort of given way to the previously mentioned combos. www.flatlanderracing.com has a lot of kits, www.coasthigh.com has lots, www.speed-o-motive.com does too.
Check those out and then check the archives on this site via the search function and you will learn lots.

Hey chilly, great minds think alike.

I may be wrong, but I think all the Eagle and Scat castings and forgings are Chinese and Scat "finishes" the pieces in the US. The Eagle stuff is completely done in China. Very cost-effective pieces.
Some combo data...
351W is a 3.50 strk 5.95 rod 4.00 bore
393 has a 3.850 strk 5.95 rod 4.03 bore
408 has a 4.00 strk var rod len 4.03 bore
(Can go from 6.00 sbc rod up to 6.2 aftermarket rod)
427 has a 4.125 strk 4.06 bore
454 has a 4.25 strk 4.125 bore (Motorsport block and custom grind on a FMS forging).
Defining the "best" would be tough...Best for you? Best per dollar? Best for a boat? Best if cost is no issue?
