Default (Dis) Advantage? FT vs FE block?

My friend with the stack of 390's just dropped a heavy-truck FT 391 engine off. Best as I can tell from limited reading, these were cast with thicker main webs, resulting in a heavier-weight foundation. I'm not sure if this is something that is desirable, or if it's just more weight to lug around.
Would I be wise to keep my original plans of building on a 390 FE block, or use the FT block?

Thanks, experts.

Tom
