The downside to having a 2012 is your computer. You'd have to get a hold of one of the big builders and see if they can do a 2010 swap for you.

As for the physical/mechanical side, you can easily pick up a 392cu stroker kit. There are definately quality levels among kits and spending the money will get you a higher quality kit that should stand up to more abuse.

The blocks are not the same, there is a bore difference between the 5.7L/6.1L/6.4L(?) block, however, the heads can be interchanged even though the quench area is different. The 6.1L heads bolt to the 5.7L block quite nicely but you need to look at where you want your power since the heads flow better at different rpms. I know the 6.4L heads can bolt on, but I'm not sure what the compression ratio would be.
