|I'm with JAMMAN on this one, compare all of the costs in the three motors you want to swap in, and you might start to look at the 5.0L W in a different light.
You could, as suggest be 410, do a stroker kit, 331 being my choice too BUT with stock pistons you get 327 CI, which is really my top choice. Either a 327 or 331 you will see a lot more torque than a stock 5.0L, and will feel it. then of course there is a new Camshaft, designed for low end torque and fuel economy, better intakes and there are headers on the market for the 5.0LW, but not the other two, but buy accessories designed for Torque and you will end up with more torque and more usable HP.
Take the time to do the math first, it will save you in time and effort and you will end up with a good efficient and powerful truck.
p.s. AND...for what it may be worth, based on what we have been talking about, if time was on my side, and I decided to do a conversion, it would be either a 327 or a 331 AND a 6-speed automatic, with a low stall speed torque converter... 1500-1800 rpm's.
