I've been running eagle crank and h-beam rods in a 347 ford for 2 yrs. no problems yet.Scat are supposed to be better but seen 2 of them break in half last year.1 was a 396 ford and the other was a sb chevy.The sbc was a fordged crank

It will be okay if the builder has the proper clearance on all the bearings. They are not real good about making every throw the same. So check each one and use the proper clearance. Not strange for the front and rear mains to be .002" apart.
