Intended Hp /rpm of the build and your budget?
You can pay $600 or $2500 for a 4.00" crank depending on your requirements

stroking to 383 will help with that...those are all good brands...I have all Scat Forged components and a big Howards Racing, Roller Cam in my 383/525HP...but like OZ says, it just depends on what your power goals and budget are

What block are you planning on using?
3.75 (383) is most common stoker ; minimal clearance work of block needed and stroker parts common and cheap .
3.875" (396 ) requires more work
Even the 400 SBC only had a 3.75" stroke.
Plenty of online info if you use Google

Aside from the crank. Can the stock heads and injectors handle the job?

If you are planning a big cube SBC with stock heads heading you are thinking in the wrong direction.
Better to build a 3.750 stroke 383.

At 406+ cubes ( 4.00" stroke ) you are going to want some big heads , prob 200 cc or better if you want it to see it's potential.
And you will need larger injector and prob a better intake than a TPI so it can breath.The TPI was designed for a 305

If you read the write ups , you will see a 4" bore x 4" stroke SBC is not a recommended build because of the amount of work
and cost involved vs easier/ cheaper ways of making the same Hp
is usual have the bore larger than the stroke if you want the engine to rev; 400 SBC was 4.125 bore x 3.750 stroke
